Erik Satie’s Gymnopédie No. 1 On The Dreadbox NYMPHES Synthesizer

This video, via Dreadbox, captures a live performance of Erik Satie’s Gymnopédie No. 1.

Nicolas Melis performs Satie’s well-known work on the Dreadbox Nymphes 6-voice polyphonic synthesizer.

The Dreadbox Nymphes is a compact 6-voice analog synthesizer that they say is inspired by “the chthonic demi-goddesses, who not only personify nature, but are regularly associated with the wild.”

  1. I almost cry every time i hear this song. Not sure if its the song or the scene in Short Curcuit 2 when Johnny 5 gets beat up by the thugs and they knock his eye out.
    This is a beautiful song and great performance here.
