The Gymnopedies, who knows what a Gymnopedie is?, (a practioner of Gymnosophy maybe?) are somewhat mystic pieces that Satie composed in the 1880's, so, chronologically at least, cannot be reminiscent of works not yet composed.
A story is told about Satie, and the younger Debussy: Satie had composed a piece, some say it was a Sarabande--though given Satie's surrealistic sense of humour, evident only for the performer on each score as strange stories, it was probably not a real Sarabande.
Debussy was so impressed by this piece--it contained the sonorities that we have come to associate with the mature Debussy--that Satie vacated the entire avenue of composition.
