Éric Alfred Leslie Satie was born in Honfleur, France. He was a French composer and pianist. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, Surrealism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd. An eccentric, he was introduced as a "gymnopedist" in 1887, shortly before writing his most famous compositions, the Gymnopédies. In addition to his body of music, he was "a thinker with a gift of eloquence" who left a remarkable set of writings, having contributed work for a range of publications, from the dadaist 391 to the American culture chronicle Vanity Fair.
