Sonic Youth have just released the official soundtrack to French thriller Simon Werner A Disparu. Directed by French director Fabrice Gobert, Simon Werner A Disparu premiered at the 2010 Cannes film festival.
For these recordings, Sonic Youth gathered at their Echo Canyon West studio in the Spring of 2010 to watch the rushes of Simon Werner a Disparu. They spent the following few weeks recording music, which was then shaped as needed to fit the various scenes.
For this release, the band managed to create power pieces of audible art by sourcing the original tapes, re-organising the various pieces, montaging multiple tracks and extending cues into new sonic realms.
