PH1L1P C0RNER - S4T1E SL0WLY (2014)
Three works in a compositional vein today. For this blog, this offering displays the perfected renditions of Satie's major works (with a few minor ones thrown in as well.) Space, and more space. Corner's interpretations for the Unseen Worlds label steer the composer away from any notion of "furniture music" and instead zooms out, macrocosmically, until the full sonic architecture comes into view: room, building, site. The pieces move between saunter and crawl, notes left hanging in an imperceptible breeze. Just the right speed to, at times, forget the music is there at all. Minutes pass. You realize you've been listening to the inside of your own head.
