Beautiful interpretations of Erik Satie from veteran composer Morgan Fisher. Inside Satie was originally released in 1985 and found Fisher, who was based in Japan at the time (working with the likes of Yoko Ono, Haroumi Hosono and Dip In The Pool), improvising several Satie favorites on piano, melodica, and synthesizer with generous dollops of tape reverb. The result is delightfully free and pure, and a very worthy tribute to the work of Satie. From Fisher himself - "Inside Satie is one of the first albums I recorded in Japan shortly after moving here in 1985. In three days I improvised on several of my favourite Satie themes. Mostly I played piano as well as the rich, analog-sounding Yamaha GS-1 (precursor of the DX-7), and sometimes used long tape delays to build layers of sound. All the pieces were recorded in single takes - no overdubs (no time!)." This is the first ever vinyl reissue from Sacred Summits, complete with beautiful new silk-screened cover art. Recommended.
