cinema jazz
 n.— «The same goes for moving pictures, whether it’s the grainy old educational clips or the handcrafted abstract strips with which the trio create, and in fact improvise to a degree, a luminous collage of loops and layers, entirely by way of creaky old 16mm projectors.…While they do perform with projectors in cinemas, Wet Gate regard themselves as much a music project as anything. Their loops are chosen with rhythmic and tonal qualities in mind, and the three aren’t uncomfortable with the neologism “cinema jazz.”» —“Indie kids, fireworks and pickle parties” by Rupert Bottenberg Montreal Mirror (Canada) Oct. 5, 2006.
