https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/58/Ericsatie.jpgÉric Alfred Leslie Satie (7 May 1866 – 1 July 1925), who signed his name Erik Satie after 1884, was a French composer and pianist. Satie was an influential artist in the late 19th- and early 20th-century Parisian avant-garde. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd.[3] Throughout his life, Satie was very discreet about his homosexuality, which was known only to his close circle of friends.

An eccentric, Satie was introduced as a "gymnopedist" in 1887, shortly before writing his most famous compositions, the Gymnopédies. Later, he also referred to himself as a "phonometrician" (meaning "someone who measures sounds"), preferring this designation to that of "musician",[4] after having been called "a clumsy but subtle technician" in a book on contemporary French composers published in 1911.[5]

In addition to his body of music, Satie left a set of writings, having contributed work for a range of publications from the dadaist 391[6] to the American culture chronicle Vanity Fair.[7] Although in later life he prided himself on publishing his work under his own name, in the late 19th century he appears to have used pseudonyms such as Virginie Lebeau[8] and François de Paule[9] in some of his published writings.
