Not one review of this show! Despite being one of the best attended Trampoline nights, despite being one of the most enjoyable Trampoline nights, despite being one of the most interesting Trampoline nights, I cannot find one review of this show. Normally I would be disappointed and if I were Mammal or Super8Super8 I think I might be a little disappointed as well. This was a superb night. I am so chuffed that it worked and more so that the Trampoline came together for once and brought others together in a way I’d always hoped it would. Film makers making new contacts, bloggers finding somebody to help them fix a video camera issue and lots of people just loving the music. One of my friends said the night was like a “great dinner or really satsifying shag”. I think that about sums it up nicely. But I think I should probably expand on that a little! Basically, way back near the start of the year, I asked Mammal to play Trampoline and said that what I really wanted to do was have them work with film makers to creat music to a film, or something along these lines. We basically left it in their hands to do what they wanted and it was well worth the wait. Super8Super8 are film makers who specialise in working with Super8 cameras. You can find out more about what they do and are all about at: http://www.super8super8.com Basically, Mammal commissioned these guys to make films based on their music. Experiments in music and film if you like. The idea of putting music to a fim has always fascinated me. I hope that through Matty and his film friends I will continue to get to work on soundtracks for their work. It’s always a challenge. So for Mammal to flip this and make the film makers interpret their music was even more interesting! What I loved most about the night was that the film makers were in the middle of the room working their projectors and reacting to the music as the night progressed and the music changed patterns, speed, shapes. It was something real, something tangible, something that everyone in the room could see as it happened. So there were really 2 performances that evening and I think that’s something I’ve been striving for at Trampoline. Collaboration between artists and musicians, film makers and musicians, dancers and musicians. For the first time, this really felt like the people involved poured their heart and soul into the night and that made it special for me. Mammal – were absolutely brilliant and watching them is incredible as there is so much going on. It was actually hard to know where to look during the night because of everything that was happening but I think the music and films came together brilliantly and the night was a real success. Obviously the lack of interest in the night from anyone in the media is a shame as I don’t think there’s been anything like it for a while. But to be honest, I feel satisfied in what we achieved on Saturday and hopefully if it draws more and more people to the nights then it will prove a real success. I guess the plan now is to try and do nights like this one more often. Not monthly, but every 3 months or something would be great. Although I’ll be taking a backseat from Trampoline, I am excited that the nights canmove forward and hopefully attract more and more attention. All good.
