2017 CREATION

FLM CONCERT “THE LOST WORLD”
BY HARRY O. HOYT (1925)
July 10th-15th at the FESTIVAL OFF D’AVIGNON 2017



A perilous quest, intrepid explorers, an impossible love, a fantastic country populated by dinosaurs, all electrified by a narrative and reactive music : An adventurous jazz with minimalist accents.

Professor Challenger, the head of a courageous expedition, explores the Amazon jungle in search of a fabulous lost world! A thrilling adventure, the treasure of a silent film that the OZMA ensemble dusts off by infusing it with a contemporary soundtrack, touching and refreshing. While retaining jazz’s freedom and love of sound, it is in more popular forms of music that this film concert finds inspiration. Pop melodies, rock explosions, and traces of repetitive, electronic music punctuate the film by accompanying theme changes and nurturing improvisations.

The Tangram Company will defend its new creation during the 2017 Avignon Off festival, every morning from the 10th to the 15th of July at the UTOPIA cinema, as part of AJMI’s “Tête de Jazz” program.
