Sonic Youth - Simon Werner (soundtrack)- New LP

Regular price $ 24.00 $ 0.00

IIn Spring 2010 Sonic Youth gathered at their Echo Canyon West studio in Hoboken, New Jersey to watch the rushes of a new film, ‘Simon Werner a Disparu,’ by French director Fabrice Gobert. The band spent the following few weeks recording music which was then shaped to fit the various scenes of the film. For this release it was decided to do more than present the abbreviated clips of music used in the film. Instead the band went back to the original tapes and re-organized the various pieces; sometimes montaging multiple tracks together, other times extending cues into new sonic realms.

Lee here: These are the last recordings SY made together. I love these instrumental tracks, birthed at an awkward moment in our lives but full of beautiful passages and continued creativity. To me, they are a wonderful group of tracks to go out on....<
