Pop pianist Chilly Gonzales and rock provocateur Peaches are complete opposites when it comes to their music, but that hasn't stopped them from being friends and collaborative partners throughout their careers.
In the Junction, a new animated video series from the Red Bull Music Academy, Chilly and Peaches talk about how this dynamic works for them, how Chilly was introduced to music through jazz fusion and keyboard, Peaches through guitar rock, and how a basement jam session together taught them to drop all of their preconceived notions about music and explore new paths of creativity. The short video was directed by Academy Award-nominated animator Patrick Doyon.
The Red Bull Music Academy was launched in 1998, and each year features a workshop for selected participants, culminating in live events and festivals. This year RBMA touches down in Montreal from Sept. 24 to Oct. 28. Visit their website for more information.
