M. T. Anderson and Petra Mathers Strange Mr. Satie (Bccb Blue Ribbon Nonfiction Book Award (Awards))|
Viking Juvenile, 2003; ISBN 0670036374; 32 pages
In Paris, at the turn of the twentieth century, when artists were experimenting with new ways of seeing things, Erik Satie had something new to say about music. Most people didn't understand his pieces; critics called his music surreal. But Erik Satie didn't care. He wanted to make music that followed no rules but its own. Satie's life was strange and wonderful, frenetic and lonely all at the same time. He was friends with Picasso, and with wizards and puppeteers; he scraped himself with a stone instead of bathing, and he once threw his acrobat girlfriend out a window. Now award-winning author M. T. Anderson tells the story of the irreverent French composer in a biography that is witty, accessible, and endlessly surprising, while Petra Mathers' fanciful illustrations capture all the vibrancy that was Erik Satie's topsy-turvy world. Illustrations by Petra Mathers. Price indication: $ 11.55
Steven Moore Whiting Satie the Bohemian: From Cabaret to Concert Hall (Oxford Monographs on Music)|
Oxford University Press, 1999; ISBN 0198164580; 612 pages
The composer Erik Satie (1866-1925) came of age in the bohemian sub-culture of Montmartre, with its artists' cabarets and cafes-concerts. These colorful milieux decisively shaped his aesthetic priorities and compositional strategies, from the esoteric Gymnopedies of the 1880s to the avant-garde ballets of the 1920s. Moore Whiting makes this radical transvaluation of received artistic values more understandable by placing it in the full context of bohemian Montmartre. Price indication: $ 140.00

Nancy Perloff Art and the Everyday: Popular Entertainment and the Circle of Erik Satie|
Oxford Univ Pr, 1991; ISBN 0198163983; 248 pages
This book examines the early twentieth-century movement that was sparked by the premiere of Erik Satie's ballet Parade in May 1917. Perloff argues that Satie and his colleagues, including Darius Millhaud, Francis Poulenc, Max Jacob, and Jean Cocteau, led French music away from Impressionism by infusing their compositions with French and American popular idioms. They also adopted aesthetic principles of parody, diversity, nostalgia, and repetition from the Parisian cabaret, cafe-concert, circus, fair, and music hall. With their collaborators Pablo Picasso, Fernand Legér, and Francis Picabia, they shared a radical disregard for traditional divisions separating popular and classical forms of creative expression.
