Live Music and Film Together

Live contemporary jazz and film conspire in an innovative combination. These new films by Marcus Vergette are the actual scores that direct the musicians' live improvisations in specific ways, for example a block of flats indicates play with one flat,  a chain ferry is used as a rhythmic pulse, a pile of sticks, drummer use sticks,  more sky - play quieter, more land - louder... The colour of the films affects the whole room.  The audience can see the score, what drives the music, and how the musicians respond. The videos bring the band together, and the audience  closer to the music making process. dhevdhas nair - piano; roz harding - alto sax; harry fulcher - tenor sax; gary evans - drums ; marcus vergette - double bass
