OriginEdit

Éric Alfred Leslie Satie (1866 - 1925), commonly known as Erik Satie, was a French eccentric, composer, and pianist. He was an influential in Parisian avant-garde, and his work was a precusor to the Theater of the Absurd genre. 

His Gnossiennes are several piano compositions, mostly in free time (lacking time signatures or bar divisions) and highly experimental with form, rhythm, and chordal structure.

Over the course of Satie's long residence in a commune in France, none had visited his room. After his death, his friends discovered a chaotic appartment; among unsorted papers and miscellaneous items, it contained a large number of umbrellas, and two grand pianos stacked atop one another (the upper one being used to store letters and parcels).

EffectsEdit

When the umbrella is repeatedly struck with any amount of force on a surface, those in proximity will suffer a significant upset to their ability to maintain any sort of rhythm. Walking and running will become disrupted and irregular, and affected persons will be completely incapable of keeping a beat, such as when singing, playing an instrument, or dancing.

This effect will persist for a short period after the umbrella's use, until it will eventually fade on its own.

CollectionEdit

This artifact has yet to be collected in canon.

This artifact was collected from Regina Bonheure and her student Stephanie Schuler.

TriviaEdit

  • Regina is the feminine form of the Latin name Reginald, meaning "king"; thus, it means "queen". Bonheure is a variation of the French surname Bonheur, meaning "happiness", instead using the French word heure ("hour" or "time").
  • Stephanie is a feminine variation of the name Stephen, meaning "crown". Schuler is an occupational German surname meaning "student".
