In the early 20th century, young artists around the world gathered in Paris
and tried to create a new style of art through the Café=Concert community.
Among them, Erik Satie (1866-1925) was one of the most gentle, esoteric
composer who expressed prominently the bohemian trend at that time.
He composed “Gymnopedie”, “Gnossiennes”, and the chanson music like “Je
te veux” that are still popular today as his masterpieces.
His music will be able to say, " Roots of the 20th century
For instance, he established the origin of the ambient music, back ground
music (BGM), minimal music, and also incorporate the music sounds of everyday
life into the “music”.
Through these works, his creativity has continues to influence many composers
This exhibition presents documents, paintings, posters, magazines, video
and music, and reconstructing movies concerning Erik Satie to commemorate
the 150 years anniversary of his birth.
