SNAP - Jazz Rock Live Act in PARIS

SNAP Short Info

“SNaP is equidistant from Santacruz and Tokyo, the perfect place to shake the world like a cocktail.”

"BRAS" : Immediacy, breaks, cold energy, sharp and ultra-fast informations, SNaP music is instantaneously passed on to the audience and suggests a total immersion.

Sharp writing focuses on numerous references, without barriers or predetermined style.

Nothing gets built; everything is already here, without hierarchy; SNaP taps, slices and puts together at will.

« SNaP est à équidistance de Santacruz et de Tokyo, le lieu idéal pour frapper le monde comme un cocktail. »
« BRAS » s'inscrit dans son temps.
Immédiateté, ruptures, énergie froide, multiplications des informations brèves et ultra-rapide, la musique de SNaP se reçoit de manière instantanée et invite l'auditeur à l'immersion.
L'écriture tranchante s'agence autour de références multiples et décloisonnées. Rien ne se construit, tout est déjà là, sans hiérarchie ; SNaP pioche, découpe et assemble à sa guise.
