From Régis Roinsard’s documentary Rendezvous Avec Jane (2005)
Erik Satie was a French composer who was considered to be a bit of an eccentric person as well. His music is quite capable of lulling a person to sleep or calming them down in a manner that is rather quiet and even unassuming. It’s simply THERE, in a quiet, off-handed way that doesn’t make too many demands and doesn’t offer empty promises that can’t be filled. Keep in mind I’m describing my own reaction to it, but you might have a different one if you listen. To be honest it seems very light and quite pleasant to the ear.
It’s not something that needs to be taken lightly but it is something that make a good background [ . . . ]
