Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 219 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! After a few weeks of hype, now is the time to see whether this hype is warranted… Well, spoiler alert - IT IS. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the grand piano set centre-stage which has been polished to within an inch of its life - Chilly Gonzales!
A chance to indulge in some pure musical poetry right here, people. You may know him from his rap days when he was down with the nu-skool electro-clash (what did we even call it back then?) crowd, or from his gorgeous modern classical piano performances, or indeed from his pop deconstruction videos on Youtube (or his crazy rabbit-hole worthy archive of videos!) - well, however you know the man, you will probably know that he is always incredible on these podcasts or whenever conveying stories, science or inspiration through a mic. Hear him join Pip as they bat stories back and forth, involving all kinds of gems including how a career path can look planned in retrospect, genuine skill vs wish fulfilment, how the piano can represent the atomic view of music and how it’s used all the time in all genres, the popularity of the pop song, how zooming in on the smallest element of a pop song can reveal so much, being disciplined but rebellious, his days playing in lingerie stores (and greater origin story), how you can’t practise performance and you can’t perform discipline and ALL kinds of other nourishing greatness. What a treat. Listen, fall down those Youtube rabbit-holes and enjoy Chilly Gonzales TODAY!
