Chassol Presents LUDI

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Stunning visuals and rhythmic motifs are fused into a multimedia ‘ultrascore’ in this UK premiere from the visionary pianist and composer.

LUDI, a musical film inspired by Hermann Hesse’s novel The Glass Bead Game, is a spine-tingling work where Chassol performs live as the film is screened on stage.

The game is a favourite theme for Chassol. Competition, adrenaline, chance, behaviour – the composer is fascinated by the very concept of play and what it says about man and his interaction with the world around him.

Chassol has the ability to seduce an audience, immersing them in gorgeous projected visuals and a live performance that works in perfect synthesis with film.

Following an inspiring performance at James Lavelle's Meltdown in 2014, Chassol went to work on Frank Ocean’s project Boys Don't Cry and also produced three songs on Solange’s new album, When I Get Home.
