Erik Satie (1866 - 1925) was a French composer and pianist.

He was a close friend of Claude Debussy and served as inspiration for many of Debussy's more progressive ideas.

Satie detested the French musical ideal and was fascinated by HC Andersen and Vikings. Therefore, he signed his works with Erik K. His distaste for the traditional is also seen in his quirky titles (eg. "Trois Morceaux en forme de poire" - Three pear-shaped pieces) and the comments he wrote to the musician in his music instead for traditional Italian empathetic expression.

Satie was an eccentric whose thought processes were completely different than everyone else's. He lived alone in a room like no one else had access to. He gathered umbrellas in the hundreds, and summer and winter he went in striped pants and morning dress. Among other things, therefore he was not really accepted by contemporary music critics and other musicians. This changed somewhat since Maurice Ravel in 1911 argued some of Satie's early pieces.

He wrote 150 pieces for piano, incl. the most perhaps the most popular; Trois Gymnopédies (1888).

Satie also wrote 14 songs. 6 stage works: Parade (1917) and Relache, Socrate (1919).
