ROCK & POP KEYBOARDS SESSIONS: 'CHANDELIER', SIA - WITH ROSA ULLMANN

Watch session keyboards player Rosa Ullmann give her take on 'Chandelier' by Sia. There are several techniques that can be used to really enhance your performance of Sia’s ‘Chandelier’, Rosa believes. When leading up to the chorus she suggests using ‘dynamics to really accentuate those builds and make it more dramatic’, and that for the chorus itself, ‘the syncopated rhythm between both hands on the chorus is what elevates this section. It’s very important to include all those little details because that’s what really makes the song come to life and makes the sound much fuller’.

Rosa Ullmann is a London-based keyboard player and composer. She’s supported a range of artists including Lady Gaga, Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers, The Offspring, and The Gossip, and has played at some of the world’s biggest festivals including Wireless, Rock En Seine, Africa Express and Glastonbury.
