Originally released by Les Disques du Soleil et de L’Acier [RIP] this Depeche Mode tribute offered an acoustic (piano, clarinet, cello, viola) take on 11 songs that have become cult classics. Chauveau literally just left the bare bones of the originals and together with the Nocturne ensemble reworked the material.
Note that the material found on this LP was also performed live in France, Switzerland, Germany, Portugal, Czech Republic as well as in Taiwan. Sylvain Chauveau will play together with a new set of musicians some shows dedicated to “Down to the Bone”, including a first concert in Paris this very Friday, November 27 2015 at the BBmix festival taking place at the Carré Belle-Feuille / Carre Club à Boulogne (tickets available here).
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
