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#4 w/ Get High Fiona LIVE & Viva con Agua – Friday 28.09 21h

September 26th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Fix the date: On friday i’ll be running round 4 of the OneBeat Experimental Sessions.

For this special edition for 1 year of the session, OneBeat Berlin invited the Balkan electronica duo “Get High Fiona” to play live and the Social Good Partner Viva con Agua for a short presentation about their sustainable work.

“Get High Fiona play a mix of world music, experimental electronica and soul. It’s hard to define but instantly makes you sense the depth of the emotions they put in their songwriting. Biljana plays bass on a keyboard, makes fills and sings, looping and filtering her voice. Geronimo is the multi-instrumentalist behind the main sound collage, playing the guitar, piano and wavedrum, creating beats and breaks with his computer.

Viva con Agua is raising funds and awareness for drinking water projects of the German Welthungerhilfe. But aren’t they from Hamburg and what do they do exactly? Where does the money go to? We invited Olaf from Viva con Agua to do a 10 minute talk about Viva con Agua in Berlin, their projects, activities, network, some numbers and of course their main topic: water.”

Friday, the 16th of December OneBeat’s experimental sessions goes into the second round, with  KYSON, who joined the Onebeat collective very recently, and OneBeat’s up to date only visual artist RTZ23 to perform together. We’re expecting an audiovisual experience in concert length with Kyson’s atmospheric downtempo beats blending with RTZ23′s animated visuals. Supported by Geordie Little on the guitar. We’ll also have a dj playing some tunes before and after so come early and have a beer with us.

Kyson aka Jian is the newest member of the OneBeat collective. He makes some great music. His bio states that he’s “drawing influences from Ambient and Trip Hop Artists, Jazz Musicians such as Miles Davis and Hip/hop Producers of the early 90’s” to create a mix of “Downtempo beats, soft melodies, washy vocals and deep pads“. The buzz around him is growing and he’s been featured on websites like the ISO50 Blog or the Nueva Forma Podcast.

Friday, December 16th, 21h. Free entry.
