Workshop painting

3 hours from Jeremy's class two nights ago. Work has gotten quite busy so sorry about tardy updates~ ^___^
Anyone has Erik Satie's whole collection...? is it worth getting? or just the "Best of"s...?

Hi there. I lurk on your blog since I've been a fan of your work since you were posting on, where I used to hang out a lot. Great stuff, I'm always glad when I find a new post. Keep up the amazing work!!

My wife knows a good bit about Satie, so I sent her the question you asked, and here's what she said:

"better to get his piano works than his orchestral works. i think the piano works are better overall. some of the orchestral works get into some real 20th century distracting weirdness. i don't like the selections they chose for his "best of" cd and the complete piano works set didn't get as good a review as some of the other piano cds.

his gymnopedies and gnossiennes are some of his best piano works (imho) and not to be missed. also sports and divertissements is a fun listen. the valses and nocturnes are nice too. all of that is very conducive to background music while working on art. :)

there is a piano works cd with all of that plus a lot more (some of which i have heard and some i haven't) that got good reviews. and i recognize the pianist. it's a lot of bang for your buck.

Satie: Piano Works
Erik Satie (Composer), Aldo Ciccolini (Performer)

Hope that's that she wrote all that I'm going to have to get some satie for while I'm painting, too!

Nice painting - I dig the bold strokes and the colors...

Coincidently, I have the Ciccolini piano music record - I'm a big fan of the Gymnopedies because it's mellow and minimalistic and mysterious - the rest is weirder and funkier, but kind of fun and cool - nice playing...
