Satie ''asking'' for space and strict rhythm - and you offer sense of both to us.
Yeah, I think this is one of those pieces where you have to sort of understate the musical expression, in order to communicate its beauty. It's early minimalism, so I'm being minimalist in my approach.
I think you should try and bring out what's there, not twist things to suit you or your technique.
One aspect of this piece is the spaces between the notes are hugely important. I mean it's basically chords and spaces, so in this case, the spaces are even more important than usual!
