    French street performer, some compositions and a vivaldi transcription

    Hello everybody,

    In first I would like to apologize for my english level. My name is Steve Villa-Massone, I am a french street performer for about 12 years now. I played for 10 years in Nice (french south), and, two years ago, I move to Paris.

    I have not lot of stuff on my computer, and I have started my youtube experience 2 weeks ago. So I can't propose you lot of stuff at the moment. But, when a friend will film me, I will be able to show you more new compositions, transcriptions (and jazz transcriptions of classical pieces).

    This first video was recorded in Paris, this summer. It is a transcription of the four seasons: winter (vivaldi). It is a live recording.



    In this second video, you have a piece I composed some years ago, I called it "Come bach".



    In this one, I was filmed by a tourist, I play 3 of my "classical" compositions. I was filmed by a tourist near a metro area.




    00:00 to 00:59 is "La valse du vallon" ( "valley's waltz") but only the end of the piece
    00:59 to 05:35 is also a composition but without name at the moment
    05:35 to the end is named "la crypte" ("the crypt")


    I will upload more videos when this friend will film me. What is your country general feeling about street performers ? Where do you live ? Have you ever played on the street ? (would you like ?) Don't hesitate to share me your own classical compositions links.

    Have a very good day,

    Steve

    (for finishing)

    This one is less classical, it is a piano love "song". I called it "La lune bleue" (the blue moon).

    And for finishing, Czardas (Monti) played with a violinist friend. I made the piano arrangement.

    Hello mate, thank you for your message. Zaz is a very good french singer, before becoming very famouse (some years ago), she used to play sometimes on streets. She was not really a "busker", but she made it for fun, and it was great.

    Than you again, and I am habby to see that my english level wont block be in this forum.

    A friend is going to film me soon. For waiting I have found, on youtube, one of my old compositions. I made it in the "beethoven" style. Unfortunatly, it is only the end of the pice, about 4 min are missing.



    I called it "sonate en la mineur"

    Have a great day.

    Steve
