Tommy Jacob presents Project 001 short film

Ahead of the release of his ‘Poject 001’ album on March 31st, Paris-based artist Tommy Jacob presents a short film of the same name. Running eleven minutes, the highly-stylised visual novella incorporates six of the eight tracks that feature on Jacob’s forthcoming album, released via Roche Musique.

Project 001 is an 8 track album with a singular sound; Dark and tormented. Tommy Jacob oscillates between electrifying notes and deep bass, for a melancholic and poignant result. Project 001 is both a true introspection and also an endless quest for the other. Tommy Jacob transcribes a unique vision through a captivating universe. Driven by the desire to return to a consumption of music as he knew when he was younger: “At the time I bought CDs and listened to them in loop until I knew them by heart, I did not know the song titles for me it was just track 1, track 2 etc.”.

The young producer wanted to go back to the basics with this untitled project which is also a pluridisciplinary one. Tommy Jacob imagined an 11 minutes short lm for his music written by himself. With a very graphic touch, each image is perfectly processed, adding to that dance sequences, another form of art he wanted to put in light. The final step of the project was the cover, again, he called for a young artist, Sandjill, to imagine a painting for his music, “I wanted to create an artistic interpretation of my music combining different form of art.”.
