...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

Review: Impressionist Symphony (Clearlight) 


Impressionist Symphony (Clearlight) 
(2014, Gonzo Multimedia) 
(5.7/6) 


Catch in Impressionism, while artistic school, whether in painting or in classical music and from that build an album was a brilliant idea from the French Cyrille Verdeaux , mentor ofClearlight , mythical collective of prog rock .Based on 8 paintings by Renoir , Monet , Pissarro , Degas , Van Gogh ,Gaugin and Lautrec , Verdeaux build 8 subjects where the magnificence of the arrangements is phenomenal. It is true that the French helped a lot of people are full of class and synthesizers that can almost replace a full orchestra (listen to the performance of the trumpet drawn to your handset Degas de la Marineand confirm it!), but arrangements of these eight themes, and unparalleled successive violin solos, guitars, flute, sax and piano, the way these songs transport us to imaginary scenes of any film, the way some classical passages are - here and there - introduced, all this is simply majestic and genial. Briefly, it will be said that contemporary music, classical, symphonic, the jazz , the prog rock , naturalism and eastern joined to create an impressionistic symphony, but also truly impressive. And sublime!
