Erik Satie…

Erik Satie, an incredible French composer, an extraordinary figure whose work defies categorisation. Satie is recognised for beautiful impressionist music. The founder of modernism. Strongly influenced the direction of 20th-century classical music. Satie invented what he called Musique d’ameublement or furniture music – a kind of background not to be listened to consciously. “I have never written a note I didn’t mean. Before I compose a piece, I walk around it several times, accompanied just by myself.”
