Learn about creating musical confusion, the value of musical collaboration, rogue semantics, meeting Chick Corea, using VST's, the sound of Bill at the Gates and the influence of the A-team in this in-depth interview with Edgar van Asselt by Serge Julien.
'The Gentle Insult' resulted from the musical collaboration between composer and pianist Edgar van Asselt with two acclaimed musicians Jeroen Vierdag and Jorge Rossy.
Edgar's compositions served as a blueprint for this musical interaction with a lot of musical interplay and spontaneous interactions happening. Within two days, 9 original songs were recorded, in a wide variety of styles and colours.
