Mn’JAM experiment is an audio-visual project that uses technology in art to push boundaries. It’s not just a musical show because JAM (the visual artist) also plays images, plays lasers and plays lights. It’s not just a light show because music is being interpreted, improvised, and so are the lights. It’s not just electronic music although most sounds being generated are pretty much electronic and it’s not jazz although there is a ton of complex harmonies, rhythms, and a fair bit of improvisation on top of that. It’s a hybrid show that encapsulates the essence of cross art forms.

In this project, JAM opens up a completely new category within live performance. Besides controlling electronic sounds, he is a live visual artist that acts as a musician. This happens because JAM is on stage pressing buttons, rotating knobs and turntables, “playing” with the band as if he is one of the musicians, but more than sounds, his actions also influence the visual art on screen and even lighting on stage. 

Far-removed from the traditional role of a singer, M has created an innovative place for live looping. That and the use of effects, wordless songs, vocal improvisation and looping textures augment the potential way by which this singer can intervene with the music and express herself making it possible to also act as an instrument.

They truly believe that after decades of jazz innovators concentrating on the development of musical elements (melody, rhythms, harmonic progression etc.) this genre is the perfect vehicle to lead a new world of performance where the same proficiency, expressiveness and creativity can be expressed live through digital and visual elements.
