The works are for the most part in free time lacking time signatures or bar divisions and highly experimental with form, rhythm and chordal syeet. The form as well as the term was invented by Satie. Satie used many novel names for his compositions vexations, croquis et agaceries and so on.

Ogive, for example, had been the name of an architectural element until Satie used it as the name for a composition, the Ogives.

Gnossienne, however, was a word that did not exist before Satie used it as a title for a composition. The word appears to derive from gnosis. Satie was involved in gnostic sects and movements at the time that he began to compose the Gnossiennes. Several archeological sites relating to that theme were famously excavated around the time that Satie composed the Gnossiennes. It is possible that Satie may have drawn inspiration for the title of these compositions from a passage in John Dryden’s translation of the Aeneid, in which it is thought the word first appeared: It is not certain that this qualification comes from Satie himself — the sarabande and the Gymnopaedia were at least historically known as dances.


The piano solo versions of the first three Gnossiennes are without time signatures or bar lines, which is known as free time. These Gnossiennes were first published in Le Figaro musical No.

The first grouped publication, numbered as known henceforth, followed in By this time Satie had indicated as composition date for all three. The first Gnossienne was dedicated to Alexis Roland-Manuel in the reprint.

The facsimile print of the 2nd Gnossienne contained a dedication to Antoine de La Rochefoucauld, not repeated in the print. By the second publication of the first set of three Gnossiennes, Satie had broken already for a long time with gnossiennne Rosicrucian type of endeavours.

I printed it out and had a lot of fun playing it: Just out of interest, how did you set your score up to have no time signature and no bar lines?

The time signature I understand, I think—but measures? To omit the barlines you press V. Both of these operations require you to click on the specified object before pressing the respective keys. Why don’t you put on the armor the time signature?

Mostly because the composer did so. I can play a simplified clair de lune, would this be any harder? I would say this is a relatively easy piece to play.

Due to many repetitions, there is not that much to memorise either. From what I remember, I learned this composition by heart in just a few hours.

However, the interpretation is something I still am working gnossinene. I’m not terribly good at the piano, but a while back I downed this in about 3 hours, so it’s definitely not challenging, but pretty fun to play.

Good, becuase I really love this song! I noticed two typos in the French indications: Thank you very much! They are now corrected. It will not be a priority as of now, but I may eventually do so.
