Improvising music to visual stimuli, the acoustic duo, Sainte Chapelle, is comprised of Dan Schneider and Gary Pyskacek, the principal songwriters for Chicago's Pedal Steel Transmission. Drawing on the influences of Elizabeth Cotton, Django Reinhardt and Nick Drake, Sainte Chapelle combines complicated fingerpicking with morose, somber drumming without boring the listener. Spending the last 4 years gathering 8mm footage, they have combined these into various visual imagery in which they improvise and perform live to.
