EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR BANAUSIC
The burghers began to tune the melodies of a new music: a banausic artisan song.
"merely mechanical," coined 1845 from Greek banausikos "pertaining to mechanics," from banausos "artisan, mere mechanical," hence (to the Greeks) "base, ignoble;" perhaps literally "working by fire," from baunos "furnace, forge" (but Klein dismisses this as folk etymology and calls it "of uncertain origin").
