Written by eccentric French composer Erik Satie in 1893, the extraordinary score for Vexations is just three lines long, yet a complete performance (840 repetitions) may last for anything between 14 and 28 hours. First performed by John Cage in 1963, this enigmatic, surreal work is today recognized as a musical milestone in the avant-garde canon.

This meditative 69 minute recording features 40 repetitions of the motif, performed by Alan Marks on piano in 1987.
