When Bowie meets Satie new  

On my website are Bowie songs that I turned into Satie pieces... It is a wonderful idea that only a genius like myself could have come up with, and you know it.

Fantastic.

I never knew the name of the original piece or composer but when I heard it, I made the immediate association.

I also recall that Garson does a version of the song - it's called 'Gymnopedie No 1 For Piano' and is contained on the album Screen Themes '94 by 'The Michael Garson Orchestra'. You should try to get his feedback.

Thanks! I may contact Garson when I have recorded a couple more, if I'm not too scared that my crappy digital piano sound and average technique will make his ears bleed...

I can't believe I didn't realize that was based on Heroes. It sounds so like a lovely score composition to me. I imagine it being played over a montage of someone walking home on a snowy night after parting with their lover at the bus station. Not for the last time, just for a short while.

When will the next one be ready?

Thanks. If you feel like using it for a short movie, tell me and I'll share a higher-quality file with you.

I was actually just trying to record "Jonessienne #2", but I still need to practice... Silly as it seems, I tend to write stuff that I'm not good enough to play. It should be finished in a few days at worst, though.

Well, faster than I thought, I just uploaded Jonessienne #2... This one should be easy to guess, I reckon.

These pieces are just wonderful. I've always liked Satie and you've done a great job merging his sound and sentiment with Bowie's. Thanks for posting them.
