Cinema Soloriens is a live audio visual performance of American film-maker and musician James Harrar's experimental films, with live musical renderings performed by Harrar (tenor sax, flute, bulbul tarang, reeds, voice and effects), Marshall Allen (alto sax, flute, keyboards, EVI and effects), Daevid Allen (guitar, voice & effects), and Rogier Smal (percussion & electronics). The performance encompasses psychedelic rock, outre ethnological improvisations and Marshall Allen approved jazzy stomps.
As part of this event, the ensemble will provide a free Masterclass to artists and musicians, sharing the jazz improv techniques honed by these musical legends over many years. Full details here.
Daevid Allen is avant-rock's guitar legend and one of the founders of the British progressive rock band, Soft Machine. After Soft Machine, he became the founder/leader of Gong. He continues to release numerous live sets and one-off collaborations in limited editions on various independent labels under his own and various group names. Said Daevid, "this is a time of great changes, and we will be offering some real outer-space surprises; so happy and honored to be working with these guys-finally playing with Marshall after all these years, I mean who hasn't he and Sun Ra influenced!"
