LP version. French band Cabaret Contemporain pay tribute to the composer Moondog -- New York's Viking -- with singing by two Scandinavian sirens, Swedish singers Linda Oláh and Isabel Sörling. The seven musicians focus on Moondog in particular in an effort to offer the public a new way to appreciate this too little-known music. Cabaret Contemporain is a Paris-based quintet who play electro music with prepared acoustic instruments (piano, electric guitar, drums, two double bassses). The band began playing in 2012, blending electronic music and classical (John Cage Project with Étienne Jaumet, Terry Riley revisited with Château Flight, The Man-Machine with Oláh), and has performed live around the world. Linda Oláh and Isabel Sörling: voice; Fabrizio Rat: piano; Giani Caserotto: guitar; Ronan Courty: double bass; Simon Drappier: double bass; Julien Loutelier: drums.
