Weirdness of the week: Every Satie record played at once

From our partner site, MusicalToronto:

A sound artist named Brendan Landis, who records as Hey Exit, has created a fascinating piece by combing every known recording of Satie’s Gymnopedie 1. As each plays at the same time, the attention shifts to the variations in tempo and phrasing, and creates a dense sound with rounded edges. Wild stuff!

Listen here (you won’t regret it).
