Haha! Was not thinking that at all, but I see what you mean.

I can promise you no LSD was harmed in the making of this video. :p

Well done Jim. Erik Satie made some really haunting melodies that stick with you for the rest of your life! I like your creativity and the fact that you have taken the theme and developed the idea very much in a Satie style. Great stuff.....looking forward to hearing more!
Mike!

Thanks Mike. I'm bipolar with the French impressionists - Satie, Debussey, Ravel - some things are like "ooh, that's really nice". Other stuff is like "oh, what were you thinking". :p I tackled the Gymnopedies a few years back: https://jimhanks.bandcamp.com/track/gymnop-dies
I'm probably going to put this and 1 or 2 more of the Gnossiennes on the next release.

ETA: I should probably mention there is no uke on that earlier piece
