The Musical Genius : Chilly Gonzales

Master Class | The Musical Genius : Chilly Gonzales

In the course of putting together the recent weekend mix, I came across some interesting short videos put together by Chilly Gonzales. Gonzales (Jason Charles Beck) is a classically trained pianist and electronic musician who has collaborated with artists such as Feist, Drake and Daft Punk. In the videos named “Pop Music Masterclass”, Chilly breaks down contemporary songs and looks at the musical theory and structural elements behind them to show the subtleties that has elevated them into pop hits. Below, Chilly examines “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk and “Hold On We’re Going Home” by Drake. –P.
