Erik Satie
(1866 - 1925)

Erik Satie


"I am suffering too much. It seems to me that I am cursed. I loathe this beggar's life. I am looking for and want to find a position, an employment, however manial. I shit on Art: it has "cut me up" too often. It's a mug's game - if I may say so... For the last months and more I haven't been able to write a note."


French composer whose spare, unconventional, often witty style exerted a major influence on 20th-century music, particularly in France.
