10 Classical Albums to Listen to While Studying or Writing
Like sitting outside your window with a pen and paper and listening to the rain, the notes from Erik Satie's, Gymnopedies, sound like music that was meant to be a permanent structure of nature. Gymnopedies is just the piano, and it's simple and subtle but spectacular. Satie was a French composer who was labeled as a minimalist -- even though he hated that term. It's music that is subtle -- almost mathematical -- that pulsates with life and energy. There is a lot of space between the notes, but the melody is haunting, and it's been in so many movies and television shows -- including Star Treck: The Next Generation, Chocolat, The Royal Tenenbaums -- it will be hard not pull the melody out of some memory.
