soundtrack whilst setting up for @kobocollection: Erik Satie, Gymnopédies no.3

I’ve always love the simple romantic compositions of Satie that felt pure and uncomplicated. Later recognised as the father of minimalist and repetitive music, Satie was considered experimental in his time and probably also a bit guai lan. —
He composed themes to be repeated 840 times, designed ballets with set by Picasso, formed a religion, was scorned by his peers as being a technician in music, his grievances taking on “degrading” gigs (aka pay the bill) and coined “furniture music” which was meant to be ignore aka BGM. It’s his obscure sense of humour that carried through his works. If you gotta be weird, might as well have a good laugh right?
