Work Overview

Trois Gymnopédies d'après Satie (Three Gymnopédies in the style of Satie) is a typical example of one aspect of my compositional practice, namely postmodern parody and pastiche. In works such as Homage to Chopin, Sonata After Nancarrow, Slomimsky Variations and Cageian Loops I have paid homage to composers whose work or creative ideas I admire. There is usually a twist of some kind such as keeping one aspect of the composer's style and expanding another. In the case of Trois Gymnopédies d'après Satie I have kept the basic textural format of Satie's famous piano pieces (composed in 1888) but have used different kinds of harmonic strategies such as quartal harmony in the first piece and jazz extended chords in the third.
