Classically-trained pianist, Chilly Gonzales, is known for his innovative compositions that can’t be narrowed down to one specific genre. One thing we know about him for sure is that he isn’t much of a electronic guy; prefers composing with real-time instrumentation. However, he isn’t a stranger to electronic music. His main electronic success was his album Ivory Towers which was one of his few ventures into the world of electronic music, and that album wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for Boys Noize.
In his latest interview for Daft Punk’s The Collaborator series, Chilly discusses his thoughts on music, composition, and working with Daft Punk. It’s a nice behind-the-scenes look at how he helped composed a track with Daft Punk, as well as some of the reasons behind the musical choices he makes on the piano.
