Be Clairvoyant!

January Sunrise

Advice for the New Year:
"Arm yourself with clairvoyance!"

from French Composer and Pianist,
Erik Satie, 1866 - 1925

"The Three Gnossiennes are the first compositions
in modern musical history written in bar-less notation;
and they are the first of Satie’s works to contain his famous witty
instructions and indications ('ask insistently within yourself,'
'arm yourself with clairvoyance,' 'with great kindness' etc).
