    About “Erik Satie Ornella Volta Anthony Melville

    1. Erik Satie Ornella Volta Anthony Melville says:

      ric Alfred Leslie Satie 17 May 1866 Paris, 1 July 1925 signed his name Erik Satie after 1884 was a French composer and pianist Satie was a colourful figure in the 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.An eccentric, Satie was introduced as a gymnopedist in 1887, shortly before writing his most famous compositions, the Gymnop dies Later, he also referred to himself as a phonometrician meaning someone who measures sounds preferring this designation to that of a musician , after having been called a clumsy but subtle technician in a book on contemporary French composers published in 1911.In addition to his body of music, Satie also left a remarkable set of writings, having contributed work for a range of publications, from the dadaist 391 to the American top culture chronicle Vanity Fair Although in later life he prided himself on always publishing his work under his own name, in the late nineteenth century he appears to have used pseudonyms such as Virginie Lebeau and Fran ois de Paule in some of his published writings.

    1. Erik Satie did nothing wrong in his life. He wrote great music, invented muzak, and had a great sense of humor - like wearing only brown velvet suits and buying an umbrella everyday. Also when he died, they found the piano in his apartment upside down. And then there is the story that he only ate food that was the color 'white.' Nevertheless his writings, his little poems, correspondence are fantastic pieces of literature. Debussy loved him and Picabia was crazy about this guy. If he was still a [...]

    2. Erik Satie, what a strange and lovable man you were. In both music, and apparently letters, you toed the fine line between genius and retard, and came out on the right side of that line. Well done, sir.I think I read this book the wrong way. Or maybe it wasn't meant to be read as a book. I loved each paragraph, but I had to read it in very short bursts. Otherwise, the absurdism would lose its value. I'm calling this poetry because I don't know what else to call it. It's not fiction or nonfiction [...]

    3. "All the years I was young people said to me: 'You will see when you are 50.'I am 50. I haven't seen anything"This was such a fantastic read. From Uspud to his compositional notations "not to be read aloud" Satie's writings have given me such a greater appreciation for the experience of hearing his music. Satie was a special case amongst special cases. His eccentricities flow out of his scrambled writings from a world created and sustained by this pioneer of keeping oneself 'acephalous.'

    5. Un puzzle difficile da ricomporreErik Satie è senza dubbio uno dei musicisti più importanti del periodo a cavallo tra '800 e '900, ed uno di quelli che meglio ha interpretato i profondi sconvolgimenti sociali, culturali ed artistici che hanno caratterizzato quell'epoca. Emblematico a questo proposito il fatto che due delle personalità artistiche a cui fu più legato, anche dal punto di vista personale furono da un lato Claude Debussy e dall'altro Jean Cocteau: due personalità che nel nostro [...]

    6. Книга наверное будет интересна тем, кто может вспомнить хоть одно произведение Эрика Сати (хотя бы первую гимнопедию), и кому эта музыка нравится. Читать же статьи и записки композитора, который вам неизвестен, смысла особого нет.Книга разделена на 4 части: статьи ("Всем"), пи [...]

    7. I've had an abiding interest in Satie since reading Roger Shattuck's "The Banquet Years" during my college days, and have since become a big fan of his musical output well beyond his played-to-death "Gymnopedies"; like the composer these works are witty, eccentric, and far ahead of their time. This handsome volume from Atlas Press compiles his written work, which shares the same qualities. It's easy to see why he socialized with and was sought out by avant-gardists of following generations, as h [...]

    8. Satie was, of course, a meticulous calligrapher & is reknowned for the wry humor that he exercised both in his music & in the notes written on his scores. This bk collects such writings as well as drawings & scores, etc A must-have for Satie-fanciers such as yrs truly. Another gem from Atlas Press.

    9. Satie has been with me for a long time (my first and only piano recital consisted of his 1st Gymnopedie - it went rather badly) and I have had an eye out for this collection for a while.Anyone know where it can be purchased for a less obscene price than the ones offered on and Abe Books?

    10. charming. I thought it odd given my adoration for Satie that I had not read this.n I am amazed at my ability to forget.
