I was becoming a bit unravelled in August after school started up again. It was one day after another meeting with students on zoom, no end in sight. Satie seemed like the right one to go to. Often serene on the surface, his music is often a mashup of musical styles and filled with absurd performance notes that often only the performer is privy too. In this case, a solemn piece modeled after Chopin’s funeral march is dedicated to small crustaceans, most notably sand fleas. The words of their lament are written into the score. It seemed natural to include them in the captions, and then the rest just sort of followed.
