Recorded in his apartment in Paris, this collection provides their Gurdjieff's earliest performances on the harmonium, a keyboard instrument powered by foot-powered air bellows... In our singularity, Gurdjieff was essential in providing the method and exercises for training most technicians on board our ships. All of us remember in our first orbit simultaneously drawing triangles in the air with your right hand, squares with your left hand, figure-eights with the right foot, while reciting the multiplication tables in code. More information on his music can be found here.
