« A project that has its start point in the Jazz song Take Five from David's Brubeck quartet. The project is a new version of the drum score of this song, doing a translation from the drum kit parts into french words: RIDE, CRASH, GROSSE CAISSE, CAISSE CLAIRE, TOM, TOM BASSE, CHARLES.With recorded voices from a french MC (hip hop) Madame Bert, and a French a capella singer, Christoph, the song is a new composition with words, more proximate to poetry. The piece has a different way to understand the tempo: it depends on how long are the words to be said.
The project also contemplates how parts of the drum kit are called in different languages. Few drummers around the world collaborate with their recorded voices saying these parts in their languages:Catalonia, Spain, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Germany, Brasil, Poland, Canada. »
Voices : Madame Bert, Christoph Pardon, Eliana Beltrán, Renato Souza, Michel Mesarić, Jose Jünemann, Nico Stallmann, Víctor Ginesta, Kasia Pawlowska, Mauricio Iregui
