John Cage's repertoire was heavily influenced by that of Erik Satie. During his career Satie's main intention was to ridicule what he regarded as the 'pompous' in music and became captivated by the idea of reducing musical composition to its essential elements. His music was described by critics as sardonic and witty, brief and unpretentious

Conceived by John Cage and realized through the application of programs written at Cage's request by Jim Rosenberg and Andrew Culver (1985-86), this homage to the composer Erik Satie consisted of texts (presents) by writers who knew and loved Satie's work (or who might have if they had existed in a time period thar enabled them to know. it), restructured by two computer programs. As a 'meeting' the work conjoins minds of different geographies and times, much as online communities do.

On a number of occasions Cage mounted a spirited defence for Satie, critical of the critics who assigned him a minor role in music history. To simplify: Cage was inspired by Satie, and Feldman was inspired by Cage. Mark Rothko was inspired by modern music including Feldman and Cage.

The First Meeting Of The Satie Society. The Fourth Interlude.

In 1893, Satie met the young Maurice Ravel for the first time, Satie's style emerging in the first compositions of the youngster. One of Satie's own compositions of that period, Vexations, was to remain undisclosed until after his death. By the end of the year he had founded the Église Métropolitaine d'Art de Jésus Conducteur (Metropolitan Art Church of Jesus the Conductor). The English translation was, however, criticised by John Cage; in a letter to Ornella Volta (25 May 1983) he referred to the translation as disappointing compared to the formidable value of the original biography.

The Brown Foundation Performing Arts Theater, Asia Society Texas Center. The implications of the Feldman are spun out in works by Cage - the choral realizations of the works entitled Four2 and Five are quite unusual - and retrospectively connected to Satie, the latter played with a full sense of their significance by pianist Sarah Rothenberg. Rothko Chapel was meant to be performed in the actual chapel, but it's hard to fault ECM for choosing a pair of Texas auditoria instead: the results are sonically stunning.
