So What’s Next? Downtown: Chassol

Speaker: Chassol

Location: Gaslab

Pianist, composer, arranger and musical director for the likes of Phoenix and Sebastien Tellier, the charismatic and talented Christophe Chassol. gave birth to an unclassifiable artistic piece. His compositions articulate voices, music, sounds, images onto new audiovisual objects. The result has a name: "ultrascore". His aim: harmonizing reality.

Big Sun, Chassol’s, brilliantly-dazzling fourth album, crowns his trilogy of ultrascores, which started out in Creole-speaking New Orleans (Nola Chérie, 2011) before pursuing its route through India (Indiamore, 2013).

We organize this concert together with So What’s Next; for three years already, So What’s Next? in Muziekgebouw Eindhoven has been sold out. With a strict emphasis on the up and coming stars of the world of jazz and beyond, the festival is rocking and jazzing like crazy. Would you like some proof? Here’s a list of the presented artists of the last three years: Jett Rebel, Jamie Woon, Kamasi Washington, Hiatus Kaiyote, Gallowstreet, Christian Scott, Jono McCleery, Ibrahim Maalouf, Typhoon, Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin, Gregory Porter, José James, Jameszoo, Aaron Parks, Joshua Redman, Tigran Hamasyan and  Snarky Puppy.

"Chassol is an eclectic genius (…) It reminds you of Steve Reich’s or Fred Viola’s music, Ennio Morricone or The Cure", Le Monde
