Unheard Concepts



BeMixed! was a project that was started by Christophe Ladret (drums, percussion) and Daniel Talma (Chapman stick, Warr guitar) in the summer of 2011. They recorded 12 'basic guide tracks' of drums and stick and through the internet they invited musicians to add their idea's to these tracks and send them in.

Many musicians from all over the world sent in vocal lines, keys, trumpet, sax, clarinet, guitar and other parts. Each in their own style, taking the 'basic guides' in different directions *.

In the BeMixed! studio all these contributions were selected, edited and mixed, resulting in 16 unique tracks which can be described as crossovers between composed and improvised music in a variety of styles. These tracks were released on an album called “A Transatlantic Pact - reel 1 & 2”
You can find this album on all major digital music services like Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, etc.
The name [in brackets] is the original basic guide track the song is based on. At the bottom of the page you can find the basic tracks with drums and stick only.

Christophe is a great drummer from France who lives in Lyon. Here is a link to his website

* If you think it seems that the musicians responded to each other: none of the participating musicians heard the other's contributions. It's all coincidence.
But we did a lot of editing, and the final arrangement might be quite different from the parts we received.
