Join Melissa Oliveira and Mn'JAM experiment for this special offering! Get introduced to the concepts, techniques, and hardware behind live looping with any instrument. Together, participants will create melody, harmony, and rhythmic lines and play with looping and stacking them in different ways. Vocalists and instrumentalists welcome! Live looping within a live band is something M (Melissa Oliveira) has developed and therefore you will also attend a performance to see how it all works live.
Mn'JAM experiment is a collective led by M (the singer) and JAM (electronics/visual artist). This multi-medium performance places visual arts and music at the same level in an environment where performers' interactivity goes way beyond the usual instruments and music and reaches out to the visual and digital world.
If you zoom in on the music, you’ll find a mix between empirical and rationally constructed elements; between acoustic, electric and electronic instruments; urban rhythms and traditional melodies, vocal loops and guitar solos, turntables and acoustic drums.
