The Grand Cosmic Journey CD/DVD Release
Help us to release in digipack (including a CD & a DVD) the new project of the jazz drummer Benoit Martiny: The Grand Cosmic Journey.
THE GRAND COSMIC JOURNEY
Powered by the internationally recognized musical talents of Bass clarinetist Michel Pilz, saxophonist Roby Glod and keyboardist Leon den Engelsen, The Grand Cosmic Journey extends the Benoit Martiny Band experience. With elements of Free Jazz, Krautrock, Psychedelia and completed with live video projections, The Grand Cosmic Journey is an attempt to revisit these golden years where music broke the boundaries of art and cultures, when Free Jazz gave birth to Krautrock.
Broadcasted by Arte, the concert was performed and recorded at the Opderschmelz during the "Like a Jazz Machine" festival in Dudelange May 9th 2014.
Captured by 9 high definition camcorders, this future release to be presented live on February 26th 2016 is the most impressive and original production that Benoit Martiny and his band mates have realized after eleven years performing on the European Jazz scene.
Produced by BYP, The Grand Cosmic Journey will be released in a luxurious digipack including a CD and a DVD March 1st 2016.
The music video titled "Not just a fling" has been released December 14th 2015. The tune is extracted from the concert and will be presented in a special video rendition.
To conclude, if you enjoy what Benoit and his band mates produced these last 10 years, you will really dig it.
Message from Benoit Martiny
Dear friends and fans, The Benoit Martiny Band presents to you the Grand Cosmic Crowdfunding, a project to finance the release of our Live Album CD and DVD "The Grand Cosmic Journey", a special concert that was recorded in Dudelange at the Opderschmelz during the "Like a Jazz Machine" festival May 9th 2014. The Grand Cosmic Journey is an extension of the BMB experience, powered by the ominous presences of Michel Pilz on bass clarinet, Roby Glod on saxophones and Leon Den Engelsen on organs and keys, all enhanced with the psychedelic images from the VJ-projections. We will release this DVD/CD on the 26th of February 2016 at the same epic place it was recorded, the Opderschmelz in Dudelange.
As you know, producing and releasing music costs money and on top of that we at BMB believe that music and art should be as free and independent as possible, that's why we kindly ask you, the fans of the band and the friends of our music, but also the culture and music lovers, to support this project. You can grant us any amount you wish and the best part is: you'll get something in return, like for example the new DVD, or a drum lesson from me, depending on how much ($$$) you support us.
Thank you very much! Greetings and salutations, Benoit
