With support from Ollie Howell and Sisi Lu.
Following inspiring and vibrant performances in James Lavelle’s Meltdown and at the EFG London Jazz Festival, visionary artist Chassol returns with an adaptation of his album Big Sun — an energetic and spine-tingling score that he performs live as the film is screened on stage.
The pianist, composer, arranger and musical director specialises in ‘ultrascore’ — a performance fusing and harmonising stunning visuals and rhythmic motifs into a filmic/musical whole. His audiovisual experimentation is a stand-out addition to this year’s Festival.
If you’ve enjoyed performances like Woodkid, this is for you. Chassol has the ability to seduce an audience, immersing them in gorgeous projected visuals and a live performance that works in perfect synthesis with the film. It’s a true multi-media spectacle.
A new collaboration, Ju, from audio-visual artist Sisi Lu and drummer Ollie Howell opens the evening. They will be joined by Duncan Eagles on saxophones and effects.
