SHORT FILM: en Femme de l'Horreur

FEMME OF HORROR

"Do you know what madness is and when it strikes?"

This one of a kind adaptation of 'Dementia' with it's questionable sexuality, uses only the soundtrack of the original movie to ask of you simply "Are You Normal ?" .... Well then, you better take the test.

BOOTLEG: Robin Nolan Trio

Film by Maki :: Soundtrack by Maki & SonicSC :: Recorded at Djangofest

The Robin Nolan Trio is one of the most prolific, wide ranging ensembles performing Django Gypsy Jazz standards and newly released songs. Robin Nolan is an internationally recognized solo guitartist and songwriter. You should go see him. You will be amazed.
I recorded several years of the four day Djangofest concert series with an able and varied Seattle team of 13 crew, cameras, sound and recording units. We all slept outside. We got drunk together. We recorded evey concert performance. It was magnificent. This series of concert films could not have been accomplished without their help. They get it...

MUSIC VIDEO: Dr. Caligari

What makes this film adaptation unique is it's adherence to the original script of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Meyer, before the film producers imposed the cinematic trick of a 'twist ending'. This technique may have been innovative at the time but also obfuscated the fabric of the story.

BOOTLEG: Boulou and Elios Ferre

Film by Maki :: Soundtrack by Maki & SonicSC :: Recorded at Djangofest

The Ferre family is born in to Gypsy Jazz music (manouche). One is a classically trained soloist and his brother a master of flamenco. Boulou and Elios grew up in the Romani communities of France. Both brothers expertly play American, European and Gypsy jazz from standards to obscure classics to improvisation.
I was their local guide during one of their festive tours. We spent hours in used vinyl shops finding just the right jazz recordings to bring back home. Boulou and Elios are an authentic gypsy jazz experience.
