Éric Alfred Leslie Satie (1866–1925), was a French composer and pianist. He was a colourful figure in the 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. An eccentric, he was introduced as a "gymnopedist" in 1887, shortly before writing his most famous compositions, the Gymnopédies.
