vexations-3-77The third of a projected 10 volumes, VEXATIONS BOOK 3: Lexmark XM5163 decomposes the score of Erik Satie’s masterpiece through repeated photocopy degeneration. Beaulieu’s VEXATIONS moves writing towards “furniture music.”

Each volume uses a different photocopier to degenerate Satie’s score – with startlingly unique results. Taken as a 10-book suite, the completed project will present 840 variations (84 variations per book over 10 books)

Pour se jouer 840 fois de suite ce motif,

et dans le plus grand silence, par des immobilités sérieuses

—Erik Satie

(“In order to play the theme 840 times in succession,

and in the deepest silence, by serious immobilities”)
