Erik Satie (1866 - 1925) was an influential artist in the late 19th- and 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 while his 1917 coinage "furniture music" would presage the development of background and ambient music. In her presentation, Sinéad will explore the vocal works of M. Satie.
