Erik Satie, The Gymnopedist, one of the leading figures of French avant-garde. Well known eccentric and outsider, lived with no respect for money, only for his ideals. His music is hypnotic and even addictive  – it sounds simple, but is unexpectedly hard to perform. Satie was a forerunner to minimalism. He experimented with what he called furniture music, meant to be in the background rather than listened to. He composed music to be listened at different angles, similar pieces divided into several parts.
