A visual and musical journey into the world of the musician Erik Satie
Les « Maisons Satie » is a musical and visual tribute to the composer Erik Satie who was born in Honfleur, in 1866.
An accomplished early 20th century musician, Erik Satie worked with the greatest artists of his time : Picasso, Picabia, Braque, Cocteau, René Clair and inspired such famous composers as Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky.
Using headphones (English available),you are guided from room to room to the sound of Erik Satie’s music, and the accompanying commentary is presented against a background of the sounds of his extraordinary daily life.
A blend of sound, light, images and objects takes you into Satie’s world of humour and fantasy : more than just an exhibition, Maisons Satie is a vibrant experience revealing the man, his music and his time.
