Imagine Erik Satie's Gnossienne No.1 played by Reinbert de Leeuw from the floor of the ocean. The Day After Drowning is one of a growing collection of compositions based on recomposing existing works in a dream-like or altered state of perception. In this reimagining, the languid tempo of de Leeuw's interpretation of Satie is grotesquely distended as though time is dilating and the natural resonance of the piano augmented as though heard through a strange medium.
Instrumentation: Solo piano + stereo playback. Audio cues are operated by a score-reading sound operator. Instructions included in the score.
