In 2008, the first cine-concert in the history of the festival 2300 Plan 9 – Les Étranges Nuits du Cinéma takes place in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
During 11 years, 2300 Plan 9 had the pleasure to see a lot of artists doing this exercise, trying each time, by different
each time, by different approaches, to accompany the film of their choice in music to deliver it to a more and more numerous audience.
For 7 years now, the evening dedicated to the movie-concertis sold out and is still talked about long after the festival as a magical moment.
After having all participated in this festival, we have been mandated by the committee to realize the movie-concert of the 2021 edition.
That’s why we created the LUHLÆ group in 2020.
The Witch by Robert Eggers, released in 2015, lent itself perfectly to all our compositional desires. The atmosphere of the film reminding us of our favorite albums, or even our place of residence (la Chaux-de-Fonds), we were rather confident, with the firm intention to make our common musical influences shine through in this fmovie-concert of about 1h30, where anguish, fear, oppression, evil, deliverance reign.
For us, it was an important event that we had been dreaming of doing together for several years, making this experience even more intense.
We made the common decision that our LUHLÆ project will continue under the name of YRRE.
The film tells the story of the disintegration of a family of colonists banished from their Puritan community in 17th century New England.
England in the 17th century. Settling on the edge of a forest, they find themselves confronted by an evil force.
