THE MOVIE by Harry O. Hoyt
The Lost World (1925), Adaptation of the work by Arthur Conan Doyle
Professor Challenger leads bold scientists and intrepid adventurers, as well as the daughter of a missing explorer, in an expedition to the depths of the Brazilian jungle. The small team are not disappointed. The wild area is infested with hungry prehistoric monsters and unpredictable monkey-men. As proof of their discovery, Professor Challenger manages to bring a brontosaurus back in a steel cage. The outcome of which creates a great commotion in London as cage breaks open on its arrival at the Museum and the monster begins a terrifying rampage of the city.

 

THE CONCERT by Ozma Ensemble
Following in the footsteps of live pianist accompanists of the silent film era, OZMA mixes composition and improvisation. The musicians move through the score with flexibility, gravitating at times around the written motifs and then moving away from them temporarily to emphasize a gesture, support a feeling or "play" a character. They then re-join and federate around the compositions which act like a regular musical rendezvous. In this way the music marks distinctly the many stages one experiences throughout this fantastic journey.

Ozma Ensemble:
Tam de Villiers: Guitar
Julien Soro: Keyboards
Edouard Séro-Guillaume: Bass and Keyboards
