All That Jazz: Visual Jazz
Jazz and animation are a marriage made in heaven, it seems: in Visual Jazz, you can see examples of ‘jazzimation’ and listen to visual artist Vincent de Boer talking about his love of jazz and a lecture from filmmaker Joost Rekveld, all interspersed with live music by jazz drummer Jimmi Hueting & band.
Live music by Jimmi Hueting
The music for this exceptional evening will be provided by virtuoso jazz drummer Jimmi Hueting and his incidental combo the Jimmi Jones Ensemble. They will, among other things, provide a live performance of a new score for Tusalava (1929, Len Lye); the original sheet music having been lost. The band consists of Jimmi Hueting on drums, Mete Erker (tenor sax, bass clarinet), Alessandro Fongaro (double bass) and Jesse Schilderink (tenor sax, baritone sax).
Lecture by Joost Rekveld (in Dutch)
Joost Rekveld, the renowned maker of abstract films and media art, will provide a lecture on the historical background of Visual Music in general and jazz’s influence in particular.
Conversation with Vincent de Boer
Artist Vincent de Boer will talk about his love of jazz and his participation in the jazz formation Ill Considered from London in which he is the ‘band member without an instrument'. “When I put brush to canvas I feel limitless freedom” said De Boer who opened the All That Jazz programme with his band on 9 September.
