Introducing Jazz to children? Difficult to say? However, it was the challenge of Thomas Champagne, Guillaume Vierset, Nicholas Yates and Fabio Zamagni. In a playful manner by associating the music with short animated movies. For instance a double bass with legs walks to the sound of a walking bass, a spider shaped drum set swings (literally and musically) on a string, a guitar/paintbrush adds a bit of colour,… When they combine, on stage and in the picture, Jazz happens . We also explore notions like the groove, harmony,improvisation, styles. Always by playing the music live and associating it with the animated illustrations.
