Text from back inlay:
"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 radical yet enigmatic work is now recognized as a significant milestone in avant garde music.

This meditative 70 minute recording features 40 repetitions of the motif, performed by Alan Marks on piano."

The booklet contains over five pages of further notes by Stephen Whittington from the University of Adelaide.
