ABOUT MONSIEUR LE PAUVRE

Monsieur le Pauvre – composer Erik Satie’s nickname – is a project title for several groups and soloists performing  instant compositions (improvisations) .
Contrary to many forms of free jazz or other kinds of contemporary improvised music Monsieur le Pauvre is trying to maintain a certain simplicity compareable to composers like Erik Satie, John Cage, Morton Feldman or some of the so called minimalists.
This is not meant to be a dogma but a philosophy.
