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
