Music to Dream By: Gymnopedies No. 2
French Impressionistic composer Eric Satie wrote a series of three piano pieces he called "Gymnopedies". This is some of the dreamiest music around. Here is an orchestral version of the second of the series. The music is accompanied by some wondrous visuals.
I hope you enjoy.

Are you familiar with the Three Gymnopedies of Eric Satie? Do you like the music of the Impressionism movement (Debussy & Ravel are most commonly associated with the movement)? What kinds of music do you find to be the most dreamlike?
