Mn'JAM experiment is a multi-medium performance that places visual arts and music at the same level in an environment where performers' interactivity goes way beyond 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.

 

Concentrating on the visuals in the performance, they are analogously a product of pre-composed material and live manipulation, mostly carried out by the guy behind the turntables. He is able to instantaneously control the images using the turntables and a series of pads and buttons thus not only syncing the visuals with the music in real time but also being able to improvise and “comp” visually.

Overall, the combination and correlation between sound and image makes this performance a clear-cut synthetic 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 in jazz.

Mn'JAM experiment released the official video clip of R2D2, the first tune of their CD/DVD "live with a Boom". This video clip is a quirky but instructive way of showing what is behind the question: "How would an algorithm made specifically to generate music hits function?"

At Kathmandu University School of Arts Centre for Art and Design JAM gave a workshop about the use of visual digital art in music, its synchronization, the role of "Visual Artist as a Musician" and integrating concepts within Music - Visual Art - Artwork Design - Authoring

At KJC (Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory) during Jazzmandu festival Mn'JAM gave a workshop about their philosophy and practical application in contemporary jazz of elements like live looping with a band, synchronized/live visual art in musical settings, etc.

At FlowerMusic school in Hong Kong, M conducted a live looping workshop. Participants were exposed to Mn'JAMs compositional concepts but mainly got a chance to learn how to use the loop station by looping "stuff" themselves.
