If his “Jack in the Box” ballet is how you know Satie, you probably already know about the new Association.

France may have a (rather silent) Erik Satie Foundation and also a website dedicated to the composer, yet one of the best known specialists of Satie’s work, Jean-Pierre Armengaud, together with composer Moritz Eggert and a number of other people, took the initiative to create an International Erik Satie Association based in Königsfeld (Black Forest, Germany). The goal of the association is to organize world-wide events devoted to the works and the memory of Erik Satie.
