PROJECT OF GEORGE MRAZ AND CAMILLA MRAZ
TO WRITE CREATIVE AND SUPPORTIVE MUSIC
FOR SHORT FILMS

The greatest and most important art in our world shines a light into both the brighter and dark parts of the human heart. Two of the most creative and compelling world class virtuosos and composers of our time -- George Mraz and Camilla Mraz -- have joined forces to create truly remarkable sound tracks which somehow manage both to deeply support and greatly enhance the special (mostly short) film projects they work with.

Bassist George Mraz, pianist Camilla Mraz and drummer Anthony Pinciotti all play and write completely unique music which never fails to elicit our deepest feelings while quietly astounding us with their world class technical resources and inspirational lyricism.

Camilla, George and Anthony have been developing and exploring the idea and practice of creating live music for several live films. The trio would perform in front of the screen and this music would be largely improvised with a few pre-composed themes. The style of the music would be comprised of jazz, modern classical, and other genres of music they feel are germane to the artistic and emotional integrity of the film.

The most famous and effective examples of this type of spontaneous soundtrack creation being used in an either limited or extensive ways include what Miles Davis & Co spontaneously created for Louis Malle's "Elevator to the Gallows," the score that Martial Solal et al ad-libbed for Jean Luc Godard's "Breathless," the "No Problem" theme that Art Blakey, Duke Jordan, and Barney Wilen improvised in several tempos/colors for "Les Liaisons Dangereuses," and the haunting Mal Waldron themes that were played by Dizzy Gillespie's Quintet with Kenny Barron throughout Shirley Clarke's "Cool World."

The exceptional Czech director Steve Lichtag has already given this wonderful composing/performing trio permission to create music for his award-winning film "Dance of the Blue Angels," which has already won first place awards in the
Czech Republic, Slovakia, Turkey, France, Serbia, Italy, and the USA, and they have already received serious overtures from several other outstanding filmmakers and directors who are interested in making short films with this kind of spontaneous soundtrack idea in mind. -Todd Barkan
