SILENCE OF THE JAMS
Saturday 15 July
Part film screening, part live music gig.
‘Eddie Ray – Silence of the Jams’ is an epic independent film with an entirely original soundtrack. Award winning artist Eddie Ray has created a film exploring a visual manifestation of the artist’s journey when all is lost, only it’s funny.
In a dystopian future where the world falls into silence, all live music has stopped, robots aka smartphones now rule the world. Having only ever used his trusty old Nokia, Eddie Ray missed the memo, or meme. With a motorbike as his trusty steed, in the wild west of the Sunshine Coast, and haunted by the songs in his head, Eddie must journey to find the weapon that can beat the machines. Live Music.
Silence of the Jams is equal parts movie and live music gig as Eddie and his Band of Legends, consisting of the finest musicians on the Sunny Coast perform the soundtrack live alongside the screening.
This filmed was filmed entirely by two people – one actor, one camera, with Eddie in front of the camera and his wife Aimee behind it. It was all done on zero budget, and with no script, like one big improvisation exercise, which was then stitched together to form the narrative in post production.
A unique experience not to be missed!
