VAN WISSEM, JOZEF & JIM JARMUSCH - THE MYSTERY OF HEAVEN (LP)


"Jim Jarmusch and Jozef Van Wissem met on the streets of New York in 2006. They shared a lot of interest and background 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 '70s. Van Wissem's compositional style involves hypnotic circular musical phrases that allow for a lot of contemplative space between the notes. This newest album, The Mystery of Heaven was recorded in New York with help from hypnotic Tilda Swinton on guest vocals." (label info) also available on CD
