OneBeat Berlin is back to Joao Cocteau in Neukölln for session 5 of the experimental series.
This time featuring the trio ELEPHANT to play a live jam session to accompany silent film sequences.

“ELEPHANT are the ‘contemporary melodic groove collective’. Drums, bass and piano by Christoph, Antti and Marco. Various elements from jazz, popculture, classical, contemporary and electronica, whilst improvisation is the underlying core.”

Based on silent film sequences the following concept is linep up for the night:

For the session we’ll work with a wide range of footage, not exclusively from silent films but coming mostly from around the 1920s and 1930s. The night will be divided into 3 20min parts, each representing a different theme and divided by short breaks. ELEPHANT will be improvising to a sequence they will have seen before, but never played or rehearsed to.

We’re looking forward to it. Check in on Facebook www.facebook.com/events/378658952209262, listen to some more ELEPHANT tunes on www.onebe.at/en/artists/elephant or visit www.weareelephant.com for more insights.

OneBeat Experimental Sessions#3 feat. “Wermonster as Eugénie” LIVE, 13.04, 21h

OneBeat Experimental Session 3 with Wermonster as Eugenie

Friday, the 13th of April, OneBeat’s experimental session goes into the third round. They invited Wermonster, the notorious psychedelic beat maker to perform a improvised live set under a new project name called “Eugénie”. He won’t be playing his usual live-set, instead this time we’ll go down to drone, noise & ambient.

“EUGÉNIE
is a new musical project 
It´s named after one of the characters in Sade´s “La philosophie dans le boudoir”
I play the guitar, the sp404, the sp303 and other stuffs.
There´s no beat.
There´s no sequencer.
It sometimes sounds Drone, sometimes Ambient or Noise, sometimes all at the same time.
It´s an experiment.
It keeps evolving…”
