Watch Ariel Pink Perform With A 65-Person Choir At The Week-end Festival (Stereogum Premiere)
Over the summer we saw fan-made video of Ariel Pink’s collaboration with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. Now, as if to mirror Pink’s late-period leap into hi-fi, here’s professional footage of another Pink classing up his music yet again. These clips of “Baby” and “Jell-O” find the pop auteur accompanied by the Technical University Of Cologne’s 65-person choir at the Week-end Festival in Cologne’s Stadthalle Köln-Mülheim. Jherek Bischoff handled the arrangements, and Tom Schwagers conducted. Both performances are awesome — the former subdued, the latter out of control — so watch them below.
