Erik Satie Watusies His Way Into Sound
In highly imaginative poetry, Jeff Alessandrelli invites us into the world of Erik Satie, 19th and 20th Century French avant-garde composer. The poems, many of which have the same titles as others, and imagined lyrics to sheet music fracture the idea of Satie--a man as eccentric and intriguing in his life as his music was and remains--into strange yet comforting poems as fine and engaging as air visible in a room; this is work that will delight as does the music that inspired them and which haunts us still. As Mathias Svalina said for the copy text, this is a stunning & challenging book about what it means to love stunning & challenging music.
