Jules Evens – Cut Happy


Cold Fire - a hand-drawn animation about fragmentation, interruption, nonsense, and error

Jules Evens is a musician and visual artist. Through methods of playful analog improvisation and digital experimentation, his work evokes unique sentiments characterized by contradiction: the funny sense of freedom within hopeless pessimism, or the sad darkness of positivity. By way of odd turns of melody, intrusive or off-putting timbral elements, vocals that may be most expressive in their garbled-ness, and a misalignment between lyrical substance and melody, he pushes on and absurd-ifies traditional western concepts of “song”.
