Hi, Satie invented Gymnopedias and other kind of pieces. I think they're lovely and quite interesting.

I wrote some of them. This one is played by a friend.

This is great. It's a mystery and its lovely. I am a BIG fan of Satie and his modal writing and concise beauty. I hope that you will not be offended if I post (piggyback) my interpretation of Gnossienne here on your thread. Since it's only an interpretation and not original, I don't know where else to post it, but I just wanted to share.

Lovely work Luis. It seems that at times you directly imitate the style of the gymnopedie, but you sometimes choose to differ a little and give it a more personal touch. Next time you should write a piece in the form of a pear.

Thanks Ken and Fishyfry....

Of course, it's great you post here your version of Satie's works (beatufully played, by the way).

Satie is one of my references. He was one of the pioneers who opened the tonality (in a different manner compared to Wagner), and also he mixed scales and etc...

This indeed is clearly inspired :)

The first think I notice on hearing is a bit of a minor nuisance to me. Bar 5 - 10, (and repeated sections) the bass part and the melody notes on the downbeat, move in parallel fifths. Now is there nothing wrong with a little common era bashing, but this sounds like it could use some more counterpoint to me.

Thanks. However, I don't think Satie uses countrpoint in Gymnopedies or Gnossiennes. About parallel fifths, I don't care, this "rule" belongs to other style. It't my opinion...

Ahh, the great gymnopedies... some of my favorite piano pieces are Satie's. I see where you were going with bar 5-10, but I think I agrre with jrcramer. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
