The sound of Bergljot changes constantly. The band was founded in Oslo in 2008 as jazz acoustic trio. Quickly it switched from free jazz to acoustic musical improvisations, and nowadays its music has the heavy, electric form. Bergljot is synthesizers, electronics, unorthodox techniques and discovered sounds.
ANIMATED TRAILERS AND AD FILMS FROM THE SILENT FILM ERA (CZ)
The history of Czech animation begins in the times of silent film (1925) and in the first period comprises short films, made with the use of versatile techniques, which were mostly advertising and promotional films. The most famous author of advertising films of the interwar period was Karel Dodal, who, in Elektra Journal, a studio he established with his first wife Hermina Týrlova, made first animated films, including advertisements.
