Live soundtrack: Segundo de Chomon | Offscreen
A hundred years ago (1905-1911) Spanish director Segundo de Chomon – special-effects genius, phantasmagorical cinema pioneer and arch-rival to Mélies - directed a large number of brilliant short films. In 2012 Louislouis (musician/composer of post Belgian music, pupil of Frédéric Rzewski, presenter of Funk Sinatra and ever-curious music lover) joins Truna (violin builder/musician/composer of eccentric Spanish music and collaborator of Pierre Bastien) decide to rediscover Chomon's short films. The outcome is an astonishing post-modern piece, a clever melange of traditional-futuristic and prehistoric-electronic music. Their accompaniment alternates between a commentary, a satanic dance and a dreamlike stroll – all perfectly attuned to Chomon's spirit. Don't miss a unique chance to watch giant frogs dance on the screen to exhilarating live music!
Live Soundtrack: Segundo de Chomon
Exhilarating, colourful musicians LouisLouis (B) and Truna (ES) translate into live music the giant frogs and phantasmagorical madness of Segundo de Chomon, the Spanish arch-rival of Méliès. Worlds colliding majestically and the chance to experience a journey into intertemporal lunacy.
