Erik Satie’s tranquil Gymnopedie No. 1 is given a radical reinterpretation by a bloke with access to a whole bunch of elastic.
Pianist Tristan McKay gives it a really good go, but ultimately (spoiler alert) the rubber bands were victorious.
The video comes from a series called Obstructed Recitals, which features a whole host of musicians struggling against self-imposed obstructions.
