Satie was, of course, a meticulous calligrapher & is reknowned for the wry humor that he exercised both in his music & in the notes written on his scores. This bk collects such writings as well as drawings & scores, etc.. A must-have for Satie-fanciers such as yrs truly. Another gem from Atlas Press. ( )

"All the years I was young people said to me: 'You will see when you are 50.'I am 50. I haven't seen anything"

This was such a fantastic read. From Uspud to his compositional notations "not to be read aloud" Satie's writings have given me such a greater appreciation for the experience of hearing his music. Satie was a special case amongst special cases. His eccentricities flow out of his scrambled writings from a world created and sustained by this pioneer of keeping oneself 'acephalous.' ( )

Book description
Erik Satie has come to be seen as a key influence on 20th century music and his non-conformist life is an endless source of fascination. This collection of writings embodies his contradictions and includes memoirs, notes to musical scores, advertisements, and the script of "Medusa's Snare".
