Jola & the Messenger


Jola & The Messenger is a promising audio-visual duo. Their new project ‘The Sun Songs’ is a series of cinematic animations performed live with the sound of trumpet and electronics. 

Like a cycle these songs belong together at the same time each song has an indivual quality and atmosphere. The basis of the material is nature. Shifts in light, colours, patterns, transformations, movement and pulse. 

Jola & the Messenger play with time. With a jazzy attitude, free of narrative, they invite you to surrender to their visual world and the tranquil rhythm.


Jola & The Messenger are:

Jola Hesselberth (animation, veejay)

Gijs Levelt (trumpet, electronics)

Dick Hauser (supervision)

Aram Balian (production)
