for Visual Music Artists, Writers, and Venues
I first met Jean René when he took part in the recording of the music of my first NFB film, "Liaisons" (http://onf-nfb.gc.ca/eng/collection/film/?id=52499)
I first heard Jean's playing when he was warming up before a recording session started and was struck by the presence, warmth and quality of his viola playing. I have wanted to again work with him since.
Recently, I asked him if he would be interested in making a "chaconne for viola solo" for me and in response, he sent me his "Fammi" CD (http://www.actuellecd.com/fr/cat/et_08/).
Immense music from an exceptional musician, am going to enjoy working with/for/from it for a long time to come.
