Viola da gamba modern consort
This is the first piece on my new album The Wind Cries Satie, where I did arrangements of Erik Satie´s music (all public domain) for Modern Broken Consort. Because I didn´t entirely respect the piano score and the usual interpretation in the classical field, and didn´t want to shock Erik Satie´s fans in any way, I added an extra title to the covered piece. Here I also did a video on YouTube, using images of a 1930s public domain documentary about Nice (the city in South of France) and my pieces are like universes where you can let your dreams go, I added the term walk, so it´s a Nice Walk. Broken Consort is the term used in the Baroque times for an ensemble with viola da gamba and other instruments, mine adds percussion (frame drum, various chimes, hang, etc.) and electronics, I also use an acoustic 7 strings viola da gamba as well as an electric one, which is why I add "modern" to the genre. With modal improvisation and ostinati, a bit like in Jazz, and arrangements with multiple viols. All details on my site www.gilles-zimmermann.com
