On one side we have one of the most gifted talents around today, Lena Willikens, with her ability to intertwine styles, stories and dancefloor geometries into something which never fails to surprise and entertain; on the other we have a masterpiece of japanese cinema, “Japanese Girls At The Harbour” by Hiroshi Shimizu, a silent film shot in 1933, whose beauty and innovative style is still intact today.

LiveSoundtracks #2 and Black Factory Cinema: Jaime L. Pantaleón – live set on 7 shorts from the masterclass Filming in Barcelona with Abbas Kiarostami
An omnivorous musical mind, from jazz to post rock, to metal and indie – always original, always carrying a particular and unpredictable touch. Jamie L. Pantaleón is a volcano of ideas, and some of these have been “captured” by the LiveSoudtracks project which asked the spanish musician to undertake a live soundtrack of seven shorts produced in Barcelona during a masterclass conducted by Abbas Kiarostamo, one of the masters of contemporary cinema. The result is a compounded, fascinating and multifaceted soundtrack which Jamie is now ready to present as a world premiere at roBOt.
