With Eyes Closed

By Avarine on September 2, 2018 8:09 am

This week I had corrective laser surgery on my eyes. I am still waiting for my magical new eyeballs to settle in (everything is still blurry). I wrote this yesterday while my eyes were super blurry and I was totally at saturation point with podcasts and audiobooks. Quickly recorded it on my phone so that I wouldn't forget it in my painkiller induced haze. Then re-recorded it today. It's a bit inspired by Satie's "Gnossiennes".

I definitely hear the inspiration here. Fantastic playing, hope your eyeballs get better!

Having just had cataract surgery, I can empathize. Starts out like Satie, then radically and cleverly morphs. Liked!

Very nice and natural development, from Satie-like sparseness and back again. Well done!
Hope your eyes settle in soon.

The middle section is not so much Satie and more internal angst I suppose!
