Story and context of those 2 parts (in 2 videos) of this very special day:
“COWS ENJOY & PROMOTE A HANDPAN PLAYER” is the 2nd part (Finally! Like 2 years after recording it, for several reasons 😅🙈) of the 2nd video of “Handpan Music For Animals”, the original concept and ongoing project I started in 2015. 🙂

I didn’t followed an ordered timeline in my uploads, but there’s a real one in the videos of the dedicated playlist on my YT channel 📺 (where there are 8 ones already and more to come as I’m working progressively on all my video rushes for the past years: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaPeqjLm9UZt-QX1SFWd9ncg6jQBfxHfG 😉).

This video, N.02 - part 2/2, will be uploaded this week.
Watch the 1rst one in order to (re-)discover it ‘cause they’re related as recorded the same day, entitled “COWS ENJOY HANDPAN MUSIC ... FARMERS DON’T” (direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r_MUaIefoI&list=PLaPeqjLm9UZt-QX1SFWd9ncg6jQBfxHfG 😉) ‘cause the farmers literally yelled at me and made me go out of the field where I was directly playing to and in front of the cows, yet very calm.
🎶🐮💞
They felt all the anger coming from their owners and behaved like they were defending me, going from a passive behavior with me to a kinda aggressive one against them, mooing at them! 😲🐮🤬
It was amazing to witness!

Here in this 2nd part to come, I played several tunes near another field like 800m apart from the other (I show 2 of them 🎶 in this video 😉).
At the end they mooed really strongly but differently, clearly to communicate with the others in the previous field I was forced to leave earlier ‘cause, then, those other cows replied to these here we see in the pic and a real conversation began from one field to the other.
I really felt like they were talking about me, promoting me to the others, and like those other cows were replying that I was with them few minutes before and that the farmers were really mean and all the story of the first part video.
It was really astonishing! 😀🐮💬🐮

Some of the farmers who followed me (to see what I was up to this time, but I stayed on the side, not directly in the field which belong to them) were well forced to witness behaviors they’d never seen. 😲
I hope that, as well as for other people who watched or will watch my #videos, it will change the usual close minded points of view. ☺️🤞🏼🍀🌍💞

👽🛸🎶🌍UFOs - Music from another Universe - (RC-505 Looper, Handpan, Duduk, Beatbox, Voice, FX, ...)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdkq3k5U1Rk&list=PLaPeqjLm9UZs--gAS6pz6kQGS0yUjzBak
🌌🛸🎶🌍👽😳✨
“UFOs - Music from another Universe”, which is telling a really particular story through music and images (but what will be your on own interpretation? 😉), is one of the new experiments I made recently (early March 2018) with my RC-505 looper, doing live looping and recording with one of my Handpans, a Duduk, Shakers, my Voice (singing, beatboxing, talking while taking a weird voice) and some sound FX.

- All the instruments were played live, by me.
- Graphic images come from unknown authors, except one, entirely conceived and drawn by me. All were then reworked and stylized by me.

I have this looper since a year and a half or so and I love experimenting new things, new ideas with it and several instruments. 🎛👌🏼🎶✨

If you want to discover other experiments and finished music tracks with this looper, I made a dedicated playlist, that I'll complete from time to time:
"Boss RC-505 Looper (w/ Handpan, Voice & other instruments) music experiments & tracks":

💃🏽✨🎶(Belly) Dance & Handpan Music #01 - Aimée "Billie" M. & xkliber (with Special FX)
https://youtu.be/kQj3fr3q1t4
💃🏽✨🎶👌🏼 😎👩🏽🧔🏻
• Belly Dancer: Aimée "Billie" M.
• Handpan Musician: Jérôme "xkliber" Chauvin
(plus Sound and Video Editing with special FX).

With this first video of this kind on my channel, I'm starting a new playlist for this project (link below), here with my very good friend, the amazingly multi-talented young woman and Belly Dancer, Aimée "Billie" M. ✌🏼
(if you have the chance to see her in a Belly Dance show, don’t miss that opportunity ; see link below 😊💛)

Further videos of Dance accompanied by Handpan Music and more will come with her (we already made two and want to do way more as we wished to do something together since years) and probably with other dancers too ...

So, here’s the first of 2 great videos of improvised dance 💃🏽 by Aimée, on Handpan music improvisations, made last November at friends's flat near Paris, France.

It's taken in only one shot and fully improvised, as mentioned, but it really doesn't seem to be... that's when there is a good connection and a good flow between artists, even more when they're good friends. 😉

The second one will come soon, as well as others for different projects I have.
So, if you read this, enjoy and haven't subscribed to my channel yet, do it fast and activate your notifications 📲 🛎🎶 not to miss them! 😀

This is the beginning of a new project of Dance and Music Duo (Handpan, etc.) and although time and space are not always on our side, when they will be again, Aimée and I will do more because we really wish to develop it! 😊💡
•••
- Aimée "Billie" M. does solo projects and is also in the Belly Dancer Troupe named "Badawat Al Sahara" (FB page: https://www.facebook.com/Badawat-Al-Sahara-1690082597919560/), their next show is at the end of May 2018.
- Dedicated playlist "Dance & Handpan Music": https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaPeqjLm9UZvS3xv5gaQje8FOq3Ii_QxF
- You can also support my different projects and some helping good causes (animals and children) by buying my music and/or by sharing my videos and projects.
You can find my last releases on all the music platforms and also as CDs: https://music.xkliber.com

xkliber's Jam with... #002 - Fabrizio Avelli, Davide Swarup, Alessio Massi & Emmanuel Olla
https://youtu.be/Op2yheuS-qw

[June 18th, 2017 - HandPan-Festival, Mèze, France]
(As always, better in HD, with headphones/a good sound system 😉).

Continuing this new concept series (and dedicated playlist, see link below at the very end then read the playlist description on its page to see/know more and why): "xkliber's Jam with...", where I'll share some videos of #music #jams #sessions with other #musicians. 🙂🎶❤️

Here in the N.002, I'm playing my Cajonico (made by Thomas Ben Tov) with the PANArt Hang pioneer, the legend, Davide Swarup himself, Alessio Massi from Hardcase Technologies and with my good friends Fabrizio Avelli and Emmanuel Olla (on the left outside the camera angle). 😊😎✨
(You can check out their links to know more at the end of this description).

Without forgetting, but quite usual in this area of South of France and during the summer, the Cicadas, singing with us like numerous living shakers, and some birds. 😉
It was a bit windy and the Cicadas were really loud, so I worked on the sound to make all those natural elements a bit less annoying for the ears, for what were possible.

It was a very cool and groovy moment of improvisation and real connection through music.
As I always say: "Music is THE Universal Language" 😉 ). 🎶❤️

For the story, I don't remember exactly what Handpans and scales we used, but I think it was 2 Meraki instruments (Davide & Fabrizio), a Sonobe (Emmanuel) and perhaps a Handpan made by Phillipe Langel, played by Alessio. 🙂

That's also the magic of the moment, big thanks to all the Festival organizers to allow some friendly and musical meetings like that. 🙂🎶❤️

Like I said above, more to come... 😉

🐴🎶❤️ - HMFA #04 - HORSE & HANDPAN LOVE AFFAIR - xkliber
https://youtu.be/iBQQxkxg6Io

Handpan Music for Animals N.04
(As always: better in HD & w/ headphones)
---
This video completes my on going original concept and project started in 2015: "Handpan Music for Animals" * (see dedicated playlist link below), to show how sentient animals are.
Here, with those horses I met for the very first time (shot in only one try).
This was also the very first time they saw and heard a Handpan.

It is said that horses are more shy than cows and more independent, less curious about things... well, I think that's lies and I can prove it with the very special connection I had, once again like in each of my experiences.
This one was even more than that... particularly unique...you'll see how sentient horses are, too.
I really made myself a new friend. 😊

Stay tuned (subscribe and activate your notifications) for the next videos to come.

You can now support this project, animals and my music by buying my new Double Album "HANDPAN STORIES" on every digital download/streaming platform of your choice, physical copies are available as well like here:
https://xkliber.bandcamp.com/
A part of the benefits will go to Associations & NGOs defending Animal Cause (and helping Children in Africa) and also Animal Sanctuaries I'm collaborating with.
❤️🐮🐷🐑🐴🐰🌍👶🏿👶🏾👧🏾👦🏿👧🏿💛


Together, let's try to make the world a better place. :)

Recorded on January 21th, 2017, in Trier area, in Germany,

xkliber's Jam with... #001 - Davide Swarup, joined by Emmanuel Olla
https://youtu.be/9y2IqyM3yxg
[June 18th, 2017 - HandPan-Festival, Mèze, France]
(As always, better in HD and with headphones or a good sound system 😉).

Here's the start of a new concept series (and playlist, see link below at the very end):
"xkliber's Jam with...", where I'll share some videos of #music #jams #sessions with other #musicians. 🙂🎶❤️

I love this kind of communication (as I always say: "Music is THE Universal Language" 😉 ), it's always full of Good Vibes, Joy, Harmony, and Surprises.
When the connection is good, you just go with the flow. 🙂
It brings back the best in you and it's always a good reminder to learn how to listen to others while communicating. 🎶❤️

So I wanted to start this new idea that I find exciting as well as motivating for other people and myself. 😊

I'll add several videos, from different moments in time...
So stay tuned! 😉


But now, let start here with the N.001: with the PANArt Hang pioneer, the legend, Davide Swarup himself. 😊😎✨

We were joined by my good friend Emmanuel Olla, who picked one of the Handpans left there, and, of course, in the area and during the summer, the Cicadas where there too, singing with us like numerous living shakers. 😉


For the story, I don't remember exactly what Handpans and scales we used (I think it's 2 Meraki instruments and one Aciel, I might have played the Aciel, after its colors) and I didn't know the one I played (as I said on the video) but, on the request of Davide who, at this moment, wanted to follow (he said he likes to do so), I started and improvised something and... the camera shut before the end (low battery), but I though it was nice to share those first 2 minutes or so. 🙂

That's also the magic of the moment, big thanks to all the Festival organizers to allow some friendly and musical meetings like that. 🙂🎶❤️

Like I said above, more to come... 😉

“Pirates of the Caribbean” (2 Handpans) theme... or so 😅😂😇 + surprise
https://youtu.be/l1nlqiKh9Xw

What can you do when you don’t have all the notes on your Handpans to play your favorite songs/pieces? ;-)
Wait ‘til the end (1 min long video) to find out and to discover a surprise! ^_^
---
I've been in the middle of so many things and urgent matters so it's been a while since I uploaded something here, sorry dear subscribers...
And there was also the release of my brand new and first solo album: "HANDPAN STORIES" (which can be found here: https://xkliber.bandcamp.com and on every platform like iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, ...).

It's a Double CD of 18 tracks, (1h35 of music, you can listen to an extract of the 18th track which is a bonus track, from the middle of this funny video) each one telling a story...

... from the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean under big storms, to Jamaica and the Lousiana's Bayou, through a very living jungle, strange and enchanting forests to a haunted house, along the French harbors then crossing the steppes of Mongolia, and then noisy cities to the mysterious mists of Avalon and to finally find our inner peace listening to our heartbeat... 🎶✨

A part of the benefits will go to support the ANIMAL CAUSE (remember my on going original concept and project "Handpan Music for animals"? https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaPeqjLm9UZt-QX1SFWd9ncg6jQBfxHfG where a lot of stuff will be added soon, btw) via well known Associations and NGOs (like L214 in France, One Voice, Anonymous for the Voiceless, Sea Shepherd), as well as Animal Sanctuaries (where I play from time to time, for example "Tierlebenshof Hunsrück-Mosel e.V." , check out here: http://www.tierlebenshof-hunsrueck.de/ [DE]) and to help CHILDREN in Africa (Kenya and Ouganda mainly), via The Dragonfly NGO (check out here: http://the-dragon-fly-ngo.com/).

Fill free to take a listen and to buy my music to support me in my projects as well as those good causes. :)
Thanks!

«Handpans' spell cast, kneeling» (2 Handpans, Phoenix Care oiled) - xkliber
https://youtu.be/A41Cv5JmrsE

This composition, made in 2016, has been, since, reviewed and enhanced (with even additional particular and natural soundscapes).
It's the 9th track of my new album « Handpan Stories » .

💽🎶 ✨
This is a meditative and powerful album, made for #Meditation, eyes wide open #Dreaming but also with really groovy parts..., and which will support #GoodCauses (read below)! 😊

17 tracks (with a 18th as a bonus track only for the physical copy version, which won’t be put online), each one is an immersive musical journey. 🎶💫
(better with headphones 🎧 🎶✨ or a good sound system).

SUPPORT MY MUSIC 🎶, A PART OF THE BENEFITS IS GOING TO ASSOCIATIONS & NGOs DEFENDING ANIMAL CAUSE & TO ANIMAL SANCTUARIES I KNOW & TRUST
(I PLAY IN SOME OF THEM) AND ALSO HELPING CHILDREN IN KENYA AND OUGANDA. 🎶✨🐄🐎🐖🐑🐐🐓🐕🐇🐁🐀... + 👶🏾👧🏾👦🏿🌍💞
🕊☺️

(click the link to have a full #FREE listening)

--- Original 2017 description: ---

A little (1 min video) mysterious theme with an Aciel and a KOAN Handpans, few hours after having properly cleaned them and having put the new Phoenix Handpan Care Oil, on.
Recorded on December 27th, 2016 (didn't had the time to do something with it yet, and uploaded last week January 13th 2017, publicly published only now ... it will happen that future posts are new and some are more or less "old" and for which I didn't find the time to work with...that's life 😉 ).

Anyway, a video, that's the best way to know how works this new oil, right? 😉
(Better with Headphones/Good Sound System as always).

The Handpans sound is really enhanced and if you want a REAL review about it, I did it 2 weeks ago already (time flies...), and I still confirm all I said about it. 🙂
Just check it here to know more: https://www.facebook.com/notes/jérôme-xkliber-chauvin-handpan-music-more-darkpulsart/phoenix-handpan-oil-review/1914025972160548/

OPEN YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS (Kalimba, Beatbox & RC-505 Looper ~ for fun & practice) - xkliber
https://youtu.be/wy2vCw_a1kw

"OPEN YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS"
(May 28th, 2017, Trier, Germany)
Hokema Kalimba Sansula, Beatbox, BOSS RC-505 Looper (for fun & practice).

Last Xmas, I bought myself this amazing looper. ☺️👍🏼❤️
I love it and all the possibilities it offers, which fit perfectly with some ideas I have been working on lately (with my Handpans, other instruments and voice). 😊🎶👌🏼✨

Here's a little demo video I made last May.
It was just for fun and practice but I find it nice to share, after all, so I recently added some ambient pictures* to match with the message inside that "song". 😉🎶🤓

Based on a beatboxed Hip-Hop rhythm and some scratch sounds made on the Sansula's skin, I also added 2 melodies with this same awesome instrument I love (a main one and another to accompany it) then my message (it's the title 😉) with a bit of effects, finally, some additional percussions by voice. 🎤🎼🎶

I used a Shure Beta 57A microphone to record all that.

Griasdi 2017 - Kabeção Solo (Soundcheck with a very special Crow 🐦🎶)
https://youtu.be/TBom7_SuzR0

Funny soundcheck extracts of my good friend Kabeção, the amazing Handpan player and musician, right before his awesome solo concert at the 2nd edition of "Griasdi Handpan and World Music Festival" in Austria. ☺️😊❤️✨🙏🏼

Before starting, his sound made a curious crow 🐦 to come around, they even tried to start a new duet, which could be called "The Octopus 🐙 and the Bird 🐦 Duo 🎶" 😉

The crow even had the chance to receive a free head massage... 😉
🐦👌🏼✨❤️

It was a very particular one, he was flying and walking here or there during the 4 days of the festival, wasn't afraid of humans, played with a few people and picked a little stone on the ground and brought it to my partner Claudia, like a little present. 🎁 🐦 ✨☺️

A friend took a beautiful picture of another common friend with him on her arm. 😊

It really felt like it was his home here, and he enjoyed several concerts, like this one, attracted by Carlos magic... 😉✨🎶🐦👌🏼

Like I said elsewhere, it really seemed like it was an old soul blessing the all event. ☺️🙏🏼✨🎶💛
