Re: That's pep!


Thanks, neb, this is perfect for today.

But is this supposed to be the Beyonce thread or something? And which is a better word, gymnopedies or gnossiennes?

They are both superlative words.

If there is a connection between Satie and Beyonce, it is unknown to me.

There's no connection at all beyond just pressing play on an hour "video" of music. Or none that I know.

What makes it even better is playing it simultaneously in three browser tabs, with random lag times between them.

It was a friend of lurid's who first pointed out to me the kooky notations Satie left on his scores: "Ne pas trop manger" and so on.

I've become addicted to Philip Corner's Satie Slowly, which is exactly what it says it is. At first it can almost seem like a prank, but once you get acclimated, most other versions really do sound unacceptably jaunty.
