Born to a Scottish mother and a father shipbroker Norman, raised in the Anglican religion, Erik Satie grew up between Paris and Normandy. In 1870, the family Satie left Honfleur to Paris where his father got a job as a translator. On the death of his mother in 1872, with his younger brother Conrad, reference is made to live with her Honfleur paternal grandparents. He took his first music lessons from a local organist. On the death of their grandmother in 1878, Erik and Conrad returned to their father in Paris. The latter s married a young woman, a piano teacher who teaches the basics of Erik instrument. It embraces Catholicism then entered the Conservatory of Music in 1879. Considered untalented by his teachers, he returned after two and a half years of courses before being readmitted in late 1885. Unable to produce a better impression on his teachers, he decided to enlist in a regiment s of infantry. After a few weeks, realizing that the army is not for him, he voluntarily exposes themselves to cold and grabs pulmonary congestion. It is reform. In 1887 he settled in Montmartre s. At that time began a long friendship with several poets like Stéphane Mallarmé, Paul Verlaine or the romantic poet Patrice Contamine. He published his first compositions by his father. In 1890, he moved at 6, rue Cortot, Montmartre still frequent the tavern and the Black Cat where he met Claude Debussy. In 1891, the two friends engaged in the s "Kabbalistic Order of the Rosicrucians" founded by "sar" Josephin Peladan and Stanislas de Guaita. As Kapellmeister of the order, he composed several works including ringtones of Rosicrucians and the Son of the Stars. Pursuing his passion mysticism, he created his own church: the "Metropolitan Church of Art of Jesus Driver" and launches anathemas against the "malefactors speculating on human corruption". It is both the treasurer, the high priest but also the only true! Forced into this reality, it must eventually abandon the. In 1892 he created his first compositions and, in 1893, starts a relationship with the painter Suzanne Valadon January 18. Well that he has the offer of marriage after their first night, the marriage does not happen, but Valadon moved s Rue Cortot in a room near Satie soon developed a passion for her, calling her Biqui, writing Notes passionate about "his whole being, her beautiful eyes, her soft hands and tiny feet". He composed it for his Gothic Dances that while she does her portrait. Six months later, on June 20, let them break the c Satie Broken Heart, "with a glacial solitude filling the vacuum head and c ur sadness". We know of no other intimate relationship. As if to punish himself, Satie composed "Vexations," a theme built from a short melody, it must be repeated 840 times, according to his notes! Although many take this for a joke, composers like John Cage take it seriously. In all, Vexations would last almost 20 hours!The same year he met Maurice Ravel. Later he wrote to Ravel "Ravel has just refused the Legion of Honor, but all his music accepts it"In 1895, he inherits a certain amount of money that allows him to print more of writings and change clothes, leaving the ecclesiastical style for the velvet. He bought a suit only seven copies, mustard color, it will constantly! It is known in Paris as the "Velvet Gentleman". In 1896, all funding has melted, it must be installed in a housing s cheaper to first in a tiny room Rue Cortot and two years later, in 1897, in Arcueil. Maisons Satie, Honfleur, NormandieIl restores contact with his brother Conrad and abandons religious ideas which he will not return until the final months of his life. He surprises his friends by enrolling s in October 1905, at the Schola Cantorum of Vincent d Indy to study classical counterpoint, which is rare when one has already 39 years! C is also at this time that he became a socialist, secular works to the Patronage of the community of Arcueil and change again for the appearance of the "official bourgeois" with bowler hat, umbrella, etc.. In 1915 he met Jean Cocteau, with whom he will begin work in 1916. He also meets, by way of Picasso, of other Cubists, as Georges Braque, with whom he will also work on projects that never see the day. With Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger and Germaine Tailleferre will be joined Francis Poulenc and Darius Milhaud, he formed The Six which he retired in September 1918 without giving any explanation. In 1919, he is in contact with Tristan Tzara, who introduced him to other Dadaists like Francis Picabia, André Derain, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, with whom they will manufacture its first readymade to their first meeting. In the first months of 1922, he took advantage of the dispute between Tzara Tzara and André Breton about the true nature of the avant-garde art, while managing to maintain friendly relations on both sides. His works are in the image of his personality, whimsical, quirky, seeking to purify his music in an era who was not musically in that tone, but also to distinguish s. He has written numerous scores without bar lines and had his own style of annotations on how to interpret his works. He inspired such as John Cage, Claude Debussy, Francis Poulenc, Maurice Ravel, Jean Cocteau or the Group of Six, and was accompanist of singer Vincent Hyspa including the cabaret Le Chat Noir.
