Pastels: a Live Musical Painting

Now this sounds like something fun to do with the kids…

PASTELS: A Live Musical Painting

With music by The Cliff Hines Quintet
Directed by Zac Manuel

“Pastels” is an original song from local jazz/fusion/experimental band The Cliff Hines Quintet’s most recent album, Like Mystics of Old. The concept of “Pastels” is to create a music video in real time, a choreographed performance in which the band will be painted, literally, from head to toe. Ten New Orleans area youths, ages 10-17, will be responsible for painting the band as they perform the title song. This process will be filmed. To achieve a certain technical effect, the band will perform the song at half speed, giving the kids approximately twelve minutes to cover as much of the band and their instruments as possible. Before the filming of the video, the band will perform a set of their latest music off their upcoming CD, accompanies by some of New Orleans’ most talented dancers.

Expect great live music, drinks, loads of paint and tons of fun!
