Summary/Abstract: The paper examines Satie's oeuvre in a double perspective. In the first place, the essay interprets his work as a series of independent musical (or sonic) inventions that follow the spirit of the great 19th century technical innovators (like Marey, Muybridge, Edison and the Lumičres) and get out from the ideas of aesthetical autonomy. Secondly, the paper tries to disclose the reason why Satie recommenced his art almost then times in his lifetime.
