Satie & Debussy (juin 1911)
Satie liked to adopt stray dogs, despite living in a small upstairs apartment. He joined the Communist party mainly to annoy people. He also liked to doodle on his music scores. When he died his friends moved his piano from the wall to find piles of music and sketches that had fallen down the back.
Brian Eno — Ambient 1: Music for Airports
We have this album on cassette tape in my living room. I discovered that on the inside of the cassette case is a fold-out with graphical representations of each track on the tape. It’s cool when artists try to tell me about their ideas in more than one way.
Also, I kind of want to listen to this in an airport now.
I want love. Or death. That’s it.
Love or death? Get off my case, Mathilda. I’m tired of your games.
There’s this really great game, Léon. Makes people nicer. Starts them thinking.
