Erik Satie wasn’t just an eccentric composer, who lived most of his life in a musty attic and attributed unlikely titles to his compositions. He was a creative visionary who, with extreme elegance and irony, circumvented the prevailing musical conventions of his era.? Masterfully manipulating the listener’s expectations and creating an unprecedented musical and sound universe, Satie’s music has maintained a transversal influence across all fields of artistic production.? Many of the core elements of Erik Satie’s music, are also, in my view, associated to the language of improvised music. Dissonance, mood, a taste for modal exploration, the unpredictability of sound movements, constant dialogue between the obvious and the absurd are some of the elements via which the "100 UMBRELLAS" project establishes a bridge between Satie’s music and contemporary Jazz .
It isn’t hard to imagine Satie and Monk talking at the same table in a Parisian cafe. It isn’t hard to imagine Satie with his fingers caressing the old piano of any jazz club.

We can imagine ....
