Das Komische als Symptom – das Beispiel Erik Satie
Abstract:Erik Satie is considered to be one of the most curious figures in modern music. His humorous vein, his refined sense of the absurd and his whimsicality hide a continuous search for new forms of aesthetic experience. Against Wagnerism and Impressionism he created a new French musical language: clear, simple and unpretentious, rooted in Gregorian Chant as well as in cabaret and anticipating the twentieth century aesthetics. His anti-serious approach to art such as the parody of established canons of art and literature and the crossover of music, text and illustration must be situated in the context of avant-garde practice, which is also a provocation of art as an institution.
