Gentiane MG

Born:

Gentiane MG was always attracted by music as a very powerful and vital means of expression. While studying classical piano as a child, she was already drawn to composition, often exploring ways of playing music by ear and inventing variations on the pieces she had to learn. Later on, studying jazz and improvised music gave her the means to find her own voice through composition, finding inspiration through introspection.

Her music comes from the tradition of improvised jazz with colours from impressionistic and romantic classical music that come together in a deeply personal universe.

Tin Men and the Telephone

Tin Men and the Telephone (TM&T) will not stand for banality. Their shows – that challenge the gut as much as the brain - undermine the monotony and irritation of everyday life by recycling anything from the bleeping of nuisance devices, to the screeching of overzealous football commentators. Rather than relying upon the jazz standard as plaything, they find melody in the flirtations of a TV porn-star or the moos of an unwitting cow, pushing the boundaries of improvisation and the communicative power of music itself. The Tin Men trio is a dynamic affair, drawing on the harmonic depth of contemporary classical music and modern jazz as much as the visceral rhythms of hip-hop and Balkan music
