This piece works very well for an actual funeral home setting, or any solemn event. The organ is light and flutey, the chords are often meandering, but have some closure now and then. There are 11 parts in this series - totaling about 34 minutes.
Very very clean mix that is non-offensive on almost all fronts. Good spectral distribution - nice lows and highs. 2 catchy synth lines sort of fight for attention, leaving you to ignore them both after a while.
A slow waltz with a beautiful and haunting melody played mostly in the higher registers. A few notes were added to Satie?s composition to keep things interesting and give the music a more full sound, the music ends with a very dark chord. This music is sad and tragic, and could be used as accompaniment to a slow dance or an art house film. Composed by Erik Satie.
A relaxed guitar and strings piece for the denouement of a story or exposition of the scenic outdoors. The guitar is peaceful as the strings gently build in prominence. The tempo is regular overall, but slows down in key moments to build a sense of tranquility.
An acoustic guitar and a banjo create a drifting lull as an accordion and erhu play a languid melody. The accordion is slightly forceful, while the tremolo of the erhu is uncertain, creating an intertwined dialogue of two vastly different characters. The piece is calm and pensive, with subtle notes of East Asian and Country Western influences.
