The hands are holding the instruments, the instruments make melodies, the drum gives the rhythm, the saxophone the theme and the piano joins all these together. PulzArt’s opening concert, Mammal Hands, starts with payful melodies, that have a lot of emotion and a lot to tell.

If the contemporary jazz has depth, then this is surely present in Mammal Hands’s music, as few artists are able to present the audience the depth of classical music, as staying on the shores of lighter reception.

In the case of Mammal Hands, the key word is experience, for their music brings the audience into an internal journey and makes them analyze their own emotions, while gathering new ones. The melodies, the volume and the intensity of rhythm increase in parallel, the British troop loving volume as well as experimentation: but these are definitely delicate and pleasant to the ears, not violent.

The band is technically interesting: next to Jesse Barrett’s classical drum, Jordan Smart plays the melody on a Nord synthetizer, while the most fanciful, Nick Smart, plays the saxophone and soprano saxophone, while occasionally passing both instruments on a distortion pedal.

Mammal Hands is a unique experience that works well in concerts: this type of music is perfect for the atmosphere at PulzArt.
