Erik Satie and His Time

Travel back to Paris in the 1920s and venture into the peculiar world of the fascinating composer Erik Satie. The pianist, whose compositions still feature heavily in films and piano repertories alike, listed Picasso, Debussy and Cocteau as his drinking buddies, so you know he is going to be a pretty interesting guy. The Bunkamura's summer special sheds light on his artistic relationships in Montmartre, where Satie hung out with Man Ray, André Derain and Georges Braque, soaking up influences and having quite an impact on his friends' activities as well.
