This week Dalt Vila becomes, once more, a Jazz scenario for some of the most renowned national Jazz figures in the European music scene.
Four days in which the audience will be able to enjoy the recently created ‘Big Band Ciutat de Ibiza’, they will be performing on the first day of the festival, the 7th of September. The closing, on the 10th, relys on the Getxo 2016 Festival’s winner, Daahoud Salim Quintet and Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava with Rava New Quartet.
On the second day of the Festival, will be able to enjoy the Eivissa Jazz Experience an ephemeral group, created with the unique intention of dying after a single performance and whose components only have one single rehearsal all together before the performance.
‘The Eivissa Jazz Experience is an ephemeral group, created with the unique intention of dying after a single performance.’
Documentary director and professional photographer Marco Torres Walker, has been taking pictures of the Eivissa Jazz Festival ever since year 2000. As a result of this work and great collection of pictures was the edition of the book ‘Eivissa Jazz. 25 anys” which was accompanied by a compilation CD of several themes from different editions of the festival.
During the edition of the book he discovered a very interesting detail about the Eivissa Jazz Experience, that nearly every time, the musicians had never played together.
And the questions started arising. ‘How do they do it? What does it take to achieve that ability and security? Do they always get it right? What happens when things do not work correctly? How do they experience it? Do they have doubts?’
So this are the grounds on which this festival stands triying to answer those questions. It is also a perfect opportunity to bring Jazz closer to the general public in an place like Ibiza, famous mainly for its electronic music.
The filming started this May and is due to finish in September with the festival. Marco has gathered a team of professionals from different backgrouds such as TV, video, photography, sound and others. This is a team that has been working together in many different projects like shorts films or comercials which have been distinguished and recognized in film festivals like Cannes or Sitges.
