About the game
Johann Sebastian Joust is a game by Die Gute Fabrik. It is a no-graphics, digitally-enabled playground game for 2 to 7 players, designed for motion controllers such as the PlayStation Move. The goal is to be the last player remaining. When the music — selections from J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos — plays in slow-motion, the controllers are extremely sensitive to movement. When the music speeds up, this threshold becomes less strict, giving the players a small window to dash at their opponents. If your controller is ever moved beyond the allowable threshold, you’re out! Try to jostle your opponents’ controllers while protecting your own.

About Le Mood
LE MOOD, Montreal’s Festival of Unexpected Jewish Learning, Arts and Culture was born of the simple belief that something incredible would happen if the most daring young thinkers, performers and artists in Jewish Montreal gathered under one roof for a day-long event, the likes of which our city had never experienced.

In 2011, LE MOOD celebrated its highly successful launch. Attendance skyrocketed at the event, bringing together a broad spectrum of more than 800 people from all over the island and beyond.

The large number of enthusiastic presenters and guests at our inaugural event also confirmed our suspicion that – as a group with a proud heritage of producing some of the finest expressions of thought, arts and culture in North America – Jewish Montrealers simply needed a place to gather, hangout and show off.

LE MOOD 2012 reaffirmed that notion: with 120+ presentations, 1000+ attendees, a Comedy Roast of the Montreal Jewish Community, a musical concert, and two of Montreal’s premier culinary establishments going kosher for a day –it was clear that LE MOOD is here to stay.
