” Since beginning this ambitious project 18 years ago with Marshall Allen, leader of The Sun Ra Arkestra, filmmaker/musician James Harrar sees Cinema Soloriens as a constantly evolving creative and spiritual learning centre.

Cinema Soloriens is a multi-media performance consisting of James Harrar’s experimental and highly personal film and video images with a live musical rendering of soundtracks for each film. The musical concepts are created, directed and performed by Harrar (tenor sax, flute, bulbul tarang, reeds, voice and effects) with Marshall Allen (alto sax, flute, keyboards, EVI and effects), Daevid Allen (guitar, effects and voice) and Rogier Smal (percussion and electronics) plus a stellar changing line-up of gifted musicians.

The project places attention on artist collaboration, exploring the moving image with live performance and when combined, an attempt to reveal deeper levels of interpretation within Harrar’s visceral film poems. These presentations also celebrate the early beginnings of cinema, providing live music to support and elevate the silent movie experience.”

*** Good Cop/Naughty Cop ***
In our performance for Two Bicycle Whees and Two Guitars, we use bike wheels to drive our guitar sound. The piece was recently selected for the KERNEL festival in Desio, Italy, from a jury consisting of Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky, Nicolas Collins, and Piero Chianura

*** Space Chicks in Trouble ***
from Bologna, Italy, consisting of Daniele Gianotta and Manuel Prat. Gianotta plays saxophone, mouth harp, and percussion in combination with electronics. Prat is originally a visual artist that has been busy for the past two years with lo-fi electronic improvisation. In the beginning of April they come to the Netherlands to give a series of concerts with GC/NC

*** The Lock ***
A new group that rises from the underground scene of Amsterdam.

It is a junction between free improv electronics and noise locked together in complementary phrasings of multi-noises and scary surprises.

All the directions are a possibility for the music and the trust of the musicians in each-other can be heard as strong as a the hearth of a predator in a jungle of sounds and energy.
The name “The Lock” is the best symbol of the communication between the players that go from one place to another in parallel motion without any pre-appointments or pre-compositions locked together by the musical experience of expressing all the ungustiation of a world coming to the end point.

Coming from completely different places (Brazil, Ireland and The Netherlands) the trio has been chained together on the spirit of free music making, from noise to silence.

*** DJ Skye ***
Playing the late night tunes, just in case you didn’t get enough music yet.
