Katzenjammer bring their musical mayhem with the release of their debut album Le Pop. The all-female Norwegian quartet storm the scene with their circus of a live show, where they command music lovers alike with their raucous set consisting of the rotation of up to 29 instruments on which the women are self-taught.
“Symphony of Hope” is a collaboration by 25 of today’s leading Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning composers to benefit Haiti Earthquake Relief. The “Symphony of Hope” begins with an original Haitian melody, then each composer contributes an additional 8-32 bars of
music to the piece and then passes it along to the next composer. This is symbolic in the way that one lending hand passes on to another lending hand and so on and eventually a beautiful outcome is achieved.
The orchestral piece was recorded this spring on the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Brothers Pictures, with everyone donating their time – the composers, orchestrators, copyists, musicians, scoring stage technicians, etc. Recording of additional pieces happened in Los Angeles
following these sessions to provide additional music inspired by the people of Haiti.
The entire process was filmed in high definition by award winning filmmaker Brian Weidling and plans for a film documenting the making of the piece as well as a live benefit concert for the world premiere are also underway. All proceeds from the sale of the album and any related material
