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.

It's a quirky audio-visual project that explores multi-medium experimentation where the combination and correlation between sound and image makes their performance a clear-cut synesthetic experience. In a nutshell, this project is shaping the future of performances when it comes to roles and possibilities within musical settings and is literally a groundbreaking platform not only in jazz but also within live music/performances in general.
