8 TRACKS: PIANO MUSIC WITH GARETH SAGER

It's a bit of an honour to be able to welcome such a prolific figure to our series on site.

It's a bit of an honour to be able to welcome such a prolific figure to our series on site. Sincerely, Gareth Sager has had more influence on Ransom Note and the music we feature than most. As a member of The Pop Group during the seventies he actively helped pioneer and inspire the post punk movement. This led to infamous releases on the likes of Radar Records and Rough Trade. 

Many years later Gareth Sager is still very much musically inclined. This year marked the release of a new solo album, a contemporary assortment of classical piano works released on Freaks R Us, the same label which has been responsible for reissuing much of The Pop Group's work. Titled '88 Tuned Dreams' the album is a truly evolutionary piece of music, reflective of a new time in Gareth's life. 

He selects eight tracks of piano music which have inspired below:

BEETHOVEN - MOONLIGHT SONATA

Corny as hell I know but when I learnt this as a kid, making it sound vaguely listenable felt good. There is so much great Beethoven, he is the mastercrafter. When so called classical music was in its golden age. There is a lot to learn here. Mind you, my version finished in about three minutes like all good pop songs should.
