Cinema-concert "The Little Mole" will be staged in Chengdu this December.
During the concert, Ollivier and Pierre-Yves will accompany that charming creature in its exciting adventures. The two musicians will be playing original and unique instruments, creating a modern musical score that enriches images and dreams.
About The Little Mole
Simple and colorful, "The Little Mole" (Krtek in Czech) was established in the 1950s, and is arguably the most popular Czech cartoon character. With two legs, two arms, large eyes, a long nose, and three hairs on his head, he is chubby and sometimes clumsy like a baby.
The little mole lives in the forest, among many other animals. His curiosity and enthusiasm lead him to crazy adventures, in which he overcomes difficulties with the help of his friends.
About the Musicians
Since 2000, singer-songwriter Ollivier Leroy and percussionist Pierre-Yves Prothais have been composing and performing over short and medium length films made between 1905 and present days. Skillfully mixing compositions and sound effects, the two enrich the pictures with a contemporary sound atmosphere. Whether they use percussion, harmonium, made up instruments, or voices going from lyrical to childlike to tribal, each piece is a genuine creation with shades of world, pop, or classical music, of improvisation and minimalist mood.
Pushing experimentation and composition, the two musicians accompanied the film's acoustic sounds by manipulating the sounds from objects such as the Vietnamese mouth harp, metal blades in water, arranged flutes, shells, and so on, creating a modern musical score that enriches images and dreams. It is a double pleasure of visual imagery and live music: a feast for all children's souls!
