Product description

Product Description

Jim Jarmusch and Jozef Van Wissem met on the streets of New York in 2006. They shared a lot of interest and background: Blake and Swedenborg, new wave and early music, avant-garde art and history, so a collaboration and a friendship was born. Jarmusch was looking to have Van Wissem compose a score for a film he had been trying to make for years, what he described as a crypto-vampire film about two lovers, outsider types who have been in love for hundreds of years. Van Wissem's work comes from a tradition of avant-garde minimalism and lends itself well to the director s stark cinematic works. Jarmusch has played guitar in bands on and off since the late '70 s. Van Wissem s compositional style involves hypnotic circular musical phrases that allow for a lot of contemplative space between the notes. Their first live performance was in Issue Project Room in Brooklyn in October 2011, where they appeared together for a Van Wissem curated concert program called New Music for Early Instruments . The idea for their first album, Concerning the Entrance Into Eternity (Important Records) developed from their live performance. Jarmusch has said that he considers these songs as Van Wissem s compositions, and sees himself as someone filling in the background to Jozef s foreground, like the scenic on a film shoot, the one who paints the backdrops. "The sound of the lute is as bright as the sun, a beautiful red colour and my stuff sounds sort of like the moon, more like blue, like mercury. This newest album, The Mystery of Heaven was recorded in New York with help from hypnotic Tilda Swinton on guest vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff 13 Mar. 2015
By Shawn Sic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
An excellent second purchase for anyone looking for more in the style of the Only Lovers Left Alive soundtrack. I prefer that one as first pick, but this is A material as well, if both of those hold your interest some of the solo pure acoustic Wissem stuff might be your next stop. Grade A music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music. 14 Nov. 2012
By Neil MacLean - Published on Amazon.com
Stark. Sad. Timeless, haunting music. The soundtrack to an interesting life. Highly recommended. The musical equivalent of a Jarmusch film. Well done, guys.
