Mats Gustafsson, solo concert, Weidingen/Eifel from Kunst in Weidingen on Vimeo.

I kind of like the idea of having concerts inside art exhibitions, both when the art surrounds the musicians and when they play to certain pieces of art.

Here is Mats Gustafsson doing a solo concert (Weidingen/Eifel) around a sculpture made by Georg Herold.

Last year we had both Mats Äleklint and Mats Gustafsson interpreting Christian Marclay´s "Chalkboard" here in the blog.

David Gilmour & Friends

We have recently had a post on David Gilmour as presented in the September issue of Uncut, and here is another one, since the October issue of Mojo (number 263 2015) is finally on sale in Norway.

On the CD accompanying this issue, "David Gilmour & Friends", Gilmour visits on tracks by Phil Manzanera, Robert Wyatt, Ben Watt, David Crosby & Graham Nash, The Pretty Things and David Courtney, and there are artists that ".. have been hugely influenced by his playing style, the atmospherics in his music, and THAT tone" (as stated on the cover). Among the artist here (probably?!) fitting in the latter category is Dungen, Steven Wilson, B J Cole and Ulver.

The Robert Wyatt track is "Forest" from "Cuckooland" (2003).

Oh, and let´s not forget that David & Joe Gilmour play "Here, There and everywhere" by the Beatles! Not released elsewhere.

Robert Wyatt Interview

Over on PodOmatic you will find an interview with Robert Wyatt in bobcast: "Greenwich Sound Radio 'Creatures What You Never Knew About' 1984 Robert Wyatt talks and plays records from his collection (55 mins)".

I´m not able to embed it here in Blogger, so just follow the link.

The opening is classic Robert Wyatt modesty:
"..First thing I am gonna play is the version I did of "Caimanera" with Harry Beckett on trumpet, and then I´ll play the record I got it from, and you´ll see how wrong I got it"!
