Chilly Gonzales reveals new video for the song “Advantage Points”

Check out the terrific new video directed by Jonathan Barré :


For Germans : http://vimeo.com/119441115

To guide fans into his Chambers, Gonzo introduces each song with short note of intention and a dedication, here is “Advantage Points”:

“ADVANTAGE POINTS”
Dedicated to John McEnroe
The “points” are staccato – clipped, insistent. I attempted musical pointillism with Wimbledon ’80 as my backdrop. Try to imagine the waltzing B-section as the endorphins kicking in after a marathon – the transcendence of physical technique (using a racquet or a piano) into pure bliss. This could just as easily have been dedicated to Bobby Fischer, Glenn Gould or Michael Jackson’s moonwalk. It all depends on your vantage point.

New Video: Chilly Gonzales & Kaiser Quartett “Odessa”

Watch Chilly Gonzales & Kaiser Quartett performing “Odessa” from “Chambers” :

[For Fans in Germany click here]

To guide fans into his “Chambers”, Gonzo introduces each song with a short Note of Intention, here is Odessa:

“ODESSA”
Dedicated to Reinhold Gliere
“Reinhold Gliere was the Ukranian composer with the German first name and the French last name. He is the missing link between the accessibility of Tchaikovsky and the spiky modernism of Prokofiev. This piece appeared in a simplified version as a Re-Introduction Etude; this fleshed-out version adds a controlled dose of Hollywood sentimentality and a nod to Stevie Wonder-style analog portamento (played on a violin by sliding from one note to the other).”

Chilly Gonzales & Kaiser Quartett at Arte Lounge

If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing Chilly Gonzales & Kaiser Quartett Live, we have a special video treat for you below.

Watch Gonzo and quartet perform “Sweet Burden” and “Advantage Points” from new album CHAMBERS, and “The Grudge” from the Ivory Tower album, at the prestigious Berlin Konzerthaus.

The composition of Chambers was inspired by Chilly Gonzales’ deepening relationship with Hamburg’s Kaiser Quartett. The album re-imagines Romantic-era chamber music as today’s addictive pop, using the strings as a modern-day sampler.

To guide fans into his Chambers, Gonzo introduces each song with short note of intention and a dedication, here is “Sweet Burden”:

“SWEET BURDEN”
Dedicated to Gabriel Faure
“My Solo Piano song (and label) Gentle Threat is one of many contradictory titles in my repertoire. Sweet Burden is the album’s first bona fide tear jerker. A long, ambiguous melody inspired by French composer Gabriel Faure. The viola solo is slowly joined by the cello, while the violins chime in with a single-note pattern. We all have our burdens to bear, and maybe only music can sweeten them.”
