Room29 – Jarvis Cocker & Chily Gonzales
What if a hotel room could “sing” of the life stories and events it had witnessed? Intrigued by that question, Canadian pianist and composer Chilly Gonzales and Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker conjure up the lives of previous occupants of Hollywood´s Chateau Hotel Marmont. Many infamous and famous guests like actress Jean Harlow or Mark Twain´s daughter Clara inhabited the hotel´s room 29. Thus, the Deutsche Grammophon albim appears as a 21st century song cycle about glittering fantasy and often bleak reality of Hollywood and at the same time as metaphor for a place within each of us, home to our deepest desires and fantasies.
