One Night Stand #1, Continued

A first video piece by Porcelain Raft, previews of Rémi Alexandre, The Luyas, and She Keeps Bees, and a mash-up to see here: everything new is at the front of One Night Stand.

We told you about it two weeks ago: the inexhaustible Gaspar Claus launched, in May, an enormous new project, One Night Stand. Eleven musicians (Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner of The National, Jessie Stein of The Luyas, David Moore of Bling and Ruth, Rémi Alexandre of Syd Matters and Shorebilly, Ben Greenberg of The Zs/The Men/Hubble/Uniform, Jessica and Andy of She Keeps Bees, Emil Bognar-Nasdor of Dawn of Humans, Mauro Remiddi of Porcelain Raft, Pedro Soler, and Gaspar himself), eleven songs, a one night concert in Brooklyn to build the collaborations, some solo songs and some as an ensemble, and a double vinyl album in limited edition available through a campaign on the French crowd funding site Microcultures.

When we announced the project, we let you listen to a neat extract of this double-album under the guise “Lines & Drones”, a song composed during the project by Bryce Dessner and Clara Claus, Gaspar’s artistic sister.


Here’s a first video: the song “Talk To Me” by Mauro Remiddi of Porcelain Raft feat. the entire beautiful cast of One Night Stand #1 Brooklyn (you can also hear nice words about the project below)


After the video of Bryce and Clara, unveiled on Pitchfork today, we propose that this week you watch a mash-up video for the night filmed by our New York director Derrick Belcham. It’s in black and white, there’s Sufjan playing many instruments, and it will also give you a better idea of the crazy process that has enabled the creation of the unique disc.


Three previews also took place last week – the beautiful song by Rémi Alexandre on, the no less magnificent piece by Jessica and Andy of She Keeps Bees on, and finally the tightrope song  of Jessie of Luyas on the British site Line Of Best Fit -, that we strongly advise you to go listen to.

We remind you that you can buy the vinyl of One Night Stand only via Microcultures and just until June 30.  Hurry, it is in limited edition and will not be available after, as Gaspar explains in the presentation video of the project.
