Erik Satie, A Son of Star
Portrait of a musician

A solitary ascetic artist in the midst of the city.

His music has been described as enchanting, captivating, of apparent simplicity yet full of mystery. Satie the musician, Satie the artist, always questioning things, like playing with mirrors. Ambivalence is the name of the game, coupled with derisive humor. His music is austere yet burlesque.
