SILENT SALON @ with live accompaniment -trumpet and electronics- by Udo Moll
Saturday, July 13 @ 8:00 p.m.
The Dragnet Girl (Hijosen no onna)
Yasjiro Ozu, Japan, 1933, 100 min, silent w/live accompaniment (electronics and trumpet) by Udo Moll
Talking pictures came relatively late to Japan: it would be 1930 before a feature-length Japanese talkie was released, and silent films continued to be produced throughout the decade such as Yasujiro Ozus rarely screened 1933 drama Dragnet Girl (Hijosen no onna), which didn't even feature a musical score. However, 2017 Villa Aurora fellow Udo Moll will be at hand to create the sound track for this master piece, full of stunning imagery and distinctive mise-en-scène.
2017 Villa Aurora fellow Udo Moll was born in Kirchheim unter Teck and lives and works in Cologne.
His initial musical socialization process took place in the brass orchestra of the city of Uhingen. He studied empirical cultural sciences, musicology, romanistic and new German literature at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen and went on to study the jazz trumpet with Manfred Schoof and composition with Johannes Fritsch at the Music Academy Cologne.
Udo Moll works as a freelance composer, trumpeter and in the field of electronic music and tours internationally.
