Session 5 is a special one.
We challenged the trio ELEPHANT to play a live jam session to accompany silent film sequences.

ELEPHANT are the ‘contemporary melodic groove collective’. Drums, bass and piano by Christoph, Antti and Marco. Various elements from jazz, popculture, classical, contemporary and electronica, whilst improvisation is the underlying core.

For the session we’ll work with a wide range of footage, not exclusively from silent films but coming mostly from around the 1920s and 1930s. The night will be divided into 3 20min parts, each representing a different theme and divided by short breaks. ELEPHANT will be improvising to a sequence they will have seen before, but never played or rehearsed to.

3 parts = 3 themes = 3 songs
I – Rythms & Colors
II – Narrative
III – Animation

arrowOneBeat Experimental Sessions#3 feat. “Wermonster as Eugénie” LIVE, 13.04, 21h

08.04.12 by Lukas

onebeat experimental sessions 3

Friday, the 13th of April, OneBeat’s experimental session goes into the third round. We invited Wermonster, the notorious psychedelic beat maker to perform a improvised live set under a new project name called “Eugénie”. He won’t be playing his usual live-set, instead this time we’ll go down to drone, noise & ambient.

We think it is the right friday for that and really looking forward.
Check in at https://www.facebook.com/events/302662426473786/

Last friday, the 16th of December, our second “Experimental Session” took place in João Cocteau in Neukölln. With the sessions we start our approach to small events based on experimental music and music performance.

This time we invited our newest member Kyson, to perform live (supported by Geordie Little) and RTZ23 to create visuals to his music. The weather was terrible as a low pressure zone was just passing over Berlin, icy rain was pouring down, so first of all we owe everyone that made to our event in these conditions a big thanks. Despite the bad conditions i think Kyson’s downtempo music kind of fitted perfectly into this ambience, personally sometimes i like to define it as “winter music”. For all those who haven’t heard his work yet, have a listen:

Inside it was warm and cosy, and after starting with a slight delay (typical for Berlin i guess) everything worked the way we thought it would.  The idea behind these experimental sessions is to bring artists together in new ways and to present something different every time. RTZ23 and Kyson collaborated for the very first time and they had only been in touch online, trying to put together a show with one visual theme per song. We wanted to create an audiovisual experience outside of the club context, and to create a stronger focus on the artist performance by presenting this in a space which is not a club nor a bar. We think that this worked really well, people sat down, watched and listened and as far as we know really enjoyed the performance. Big thanks go out to Geordie Little for supported Kyson on the guitar, to Kyson and RTZ23 for the hard work they put into it and of course to Joao Cocteau for the great venue. The date for the next session is not final yet, but expect it to be in early 2012. Hope to see you there next time!
