95 years ago He Kept His Letters Stored

Pianist and composer Erik Satie born as Éric Alfred Leslie Satie dies of cirrhosis of the liver at the age of 59 in Paris, Île-de-France, France.

After his death Satie's friends discovered an apartment replete with squalor and chaos. Among many other unsorted papers and miscellaneous items, it contained a large number of umbrellas and two grand pianos placed one on top of the other, the upper instrument used as storage for letters and parcels.
