Erik Satie remains one of the most bizarre figures in music history, yet everything he did has its own curious logic, once it can be perceived. In this important new study Dr Orledge reveals what made Satie 'tick' as a composer, dealing with every aspect of Satie's complex career and relating his achievement to the other arts and to the society in which he lived. Almost every figure in contemporary art was involved with Satie in some way or another, from Matisse and Picasso to Apollinaire, Cocteau and Brancusi. This, however, is no mere life-and-works study but rather an exploration of the technique behind Satie's art, which foreshadowed most of the 'advances' of twentieth-century music from serialism to minimalism, and even muzak. As the book progresses Satie appears as far more than just the composer of the popular Gymnopédies and Parade.
The first and third Gymnopedies fall into two symmetrical halves of equal length (39 + 39, and 30 + 30 bars). The second falls into three parts (25 + 12 + 28 bars). (It is also the Gymnopedie that Debussy chose not to orchestrate.) ...

Erik Satie (1866-1925) came of age in the bohemian subculture of Montmartre, with its artists' cabarets and cafés-concerts. Yet apologists have all too often downplayed this background as potentially harmful to the reputation of a composer whom they regarded as the progenitor of modern French music. Whiting argues, on the contrary, that Satie's two decades in and around Montmartre decisively shaped his aesthetic priorities and compositional strategies. He gives the fullest account to date of Satie's professional activities as a popular musician, and of how he transferred the parodic techniques and musical idioms of cabaret entertainment to works for concert hall. From the esoteric Gymnopédies to the bizarre suites of the 1910s and avant-garde ballets of the 1920s (not to mention music journalism and playwriting), Satie's output may be daunting in its sheer diversity and heterodoxy; but his radical transvaluation of received artistic values makes far better sense once placed in the fascinating context of bohemian Montmartre.
Like Satie's work, each of the stories in "Three Gymnopédies for Literature" seek to examine a common theme, but from a different perspective.

"Three Gymnopédies for Literature" borrows its title from French composer, Erik Satie, who wrote "Trois Gymnopédies" for solo piano in 1888. Like Satie's work, each of the stories in "Three Gymnopédies for Literature" seek to examine a common theme, but from a different perspective. The common interlocking themes examined in David's work are loneliness, loss, and transformation.Pathétique:As a recurring dream depicting the final two days of his life becomes more detailed, a young man discovers that one's fate is a matter of perspective.I Am Per:After he speaks out against his government, a man's shadow tries to kill him. (A tribute to Carl Jung and Jungian psychology)The Store:When Mary notices the appearance of an odd store across the street from her building she marvels at the speed at which the establishment seems to be falling apart. She's sure her friends would agree that the store is a strange addition to the neighborhood, but her friends have disappeared.

This is a newly-engraved critical edition of Claude Debussy's superb orchestration of two of the Gymnopedies by his friend Erik Satie. Debussy used the two outer movements of the original three pieces in reverse order, so that Satie's No. 3 became No. 1 while No. 1 became No. 2. Satie was virtually unknown as a composer at the time of the 1897 Paris premiere of the orchestral setting, which did much to advance his reputation in the early years of the twentieth century. The piano originals are now even more renowned than Debussy's orchestration, which remains a fixture in the orchestral repertoire. The 2004 edition is now made available in a convenient and affordable study score which is sure to be appreciated by musicians, students and fans of both composers everywhere.
All three Gymnopédies begin with ''vamps''—accompaniments awaiting their tunes—consisting of a pair of chords in a simple alternation suggesting tonic and dominant (Ex. 2-5). In all three cases, however, the tonal ''functionality'' of ...

The universally acclaimed and award-winning Oxford History of Western Music is the eminent musicologist Richard Taruskin's provocative, erudite telling of the story of Western music from its earliest days to the present. Each book in this superlative five-volume set illuminates-through a representative sampling of masterworks-the themes, styles, and currents that give shape and direction to a significant period in the history of Western music. Music in the Early Twentieth Century , the fourth volume in Richard Taruskin's history, looks at the first half of the twentieth century, from the beginnings of Modernism in the last decade of the nineteenth century right up to the end of World War II. Taruskin discusses modernism in Germany and France as reflected in the work of Mahler, Strauss, Satie, and Debussy, the modern ballets of Stravinsky, the use of twelve-tone technique in the years following World War I, the music of Charles Ives, the influence of peasant songs on Bela Bartok, Stravinsky's neo-classical phase and the real beginnings of 20th-century music, the vision of America as seen in the works of such composers as W.C. Handy, George Gershwin, and Virgil Thomson, and the impact of totalitarianism on the works of a range of musicians from Toscanini to Shostakovich

The Three Gymnop?dies are the ultimate in quiet minimal pieces. They have been recorded by many instruments from synthesizer to soprano saxophone. Any one of these pieces would be a great change of pace on a concert or recital or would also work well as background music at a wedding or church service. This version is for tenor sax and keyboard (piano or organ). (8:35)

Ambient Media examines music, video art, film, and literature as tools of atmospheric design in contemporary Japan, and what it means to use media as a resource for personal mood regulation. Paul Roquet traces the emergence of ambient styles from the environmental music and Erik Satie boom of the 1960s and 1970s to the more recent therapeutic emphasis on healing and relaxation. Focusing on how an atmosphere works to reshape those dwelling within it, Roquet shows how ambient aesthetics can provide affordances for reflective drift, rhythmic attunement, embodied security, and urban coexistence. Musicians, video artists, filmmakers, and novelists in Japan have expanded on Brian Eno’s notion of the ambient as a style generating “calm, and a space to think,” exploring what it means to cultivate an ambivalent tranquility set against the uncertain horizons of an ever-shifting social landscape. Offering a new way of understanding the emphasis on “reading the air” in Japanese culture, Ambient Media documents both the adaptive and the alarming sides of the increasing deployment of mediated moods. Arguing against critiques of mood regulation that see it primarily as a form of social pacification, Roquet makes a case for understanding ambient media as a neoliberal response to older modes of collective attunement—one that enables the indirect shaping of social behavior while also allowing individuals to feel like they are the ones ultimately in control.
