This video, via Patrizio Politi, captures a performance of Erik Satie’s Gymnopédie No. 1, arranged for piano and synthesizer, with a little happy synth-pop salsification.

Video description:

Come da titolo, in versione “salsagra”… ma non mi picchiate per favore!!! :-O
Casomai vendo mobile in mogano per Waldorf Q+ con doppio manuale e maravillioso light-click funzionante a inversione di fase: prezzi modici.

    1. As I love the Satie as it was written, I had misgivings, but love it 🙂 Cheered me up on a day that I was feeling pretty low. Just not 100% sure about the ending. Thank you.

  1. OMG….. custom Waldorf Q with machined knobs and second keyboard ???? HOLY HELL … where did that come from. Recently sold my Q+ and cry about it every day. Q Rack going on ebay next toward house buying adventure … but oooh ahh… how cool is that synth porn ? Oh yeah. Music was okay. ;-0

  2. Satie could use some jazzing up. I’m getting images of, like, Steve McQueen and James Coburn and Senta Berger. Perfect ’60s soundtrack.
