Erol Alkan & Boys Noize - Waves (Chilly Gonzales Piano Remake)



I really love the ivories, which is why I was excited to come across this Chilly Gonzales rework of Erol Alkan & Boys Noize - Waves. The effect is chilling. Chilly born Jason Charles Beck is a canadian who now resides in Germany. He started playing piano at age 3 and went on to do great things, including being nominated for a Grammy for his work with Feist in 2007. On May 18, 2009, at the Ciné 13 Théâtre (French), Paris, he broke a world record for the longest solo-artist performance with a total time of 27 hours, 3 minutes and 44 seconds, breaking a record set by Prasanna Gudi.
On September 25, 2009, he challenged singer/songwriter/fellow pianist Andrew W.K. to a piano battle at Joe's Pub in New York City. After twenty minutes of back and forth, Chilly finally threw a gold necklace at Andrew, distracting him long enough to claim victory. A rematch has been talked about but not yet organized.
