Memories of Monk 2
Starting with Evidence by Thelonious Monk, the sax player Philippe Leclerc and the OMax system create a hybrid improvisation between Monk's piano and the saxophone.
On the second sequence the sax plays with audio and video clones of himself created by OMax, in a mind-buggling "Mise en abyme"
On the last sequence the machine transforms the sax into piano giving the impression that Thelonious himself catches on the sax player.
