Dutch lutenist Jozef Van Wissem and filmmaker and guitarist Jim Jarmusch have collaborated in the past. You may have caught their shows at ISSUE Project Room in Brooklyn. We never imagined the director of Down By Law would be part of anything related to Baroque musical traditions, but we're always open to surprises. Check out a sample of their sound here, and come prepared for some expressive and minimal strings.

(Le) Poisson Rouge says…

Jozef Van Wissem and Jim Jarmusch Film director and screenwriter Jim Jarmusch is also a musician — not surprisingly, a very cinematic musician. His tastes in music are so much a part of his films: He often casts musicians in key roles and music as part of the storyline. Think about his film Down by Law, with saxophonist John Lurie and singer Tom Waits. Or Stranger Than Paradise, in which “I Put a Spell on You” by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins is a key character. The list is pretty long. ************************************************* Marissa Nadler “A voice you would follow straight into Hades.” “Her music sounds as somber as ever here, and her distant air remains one of the most absolutely haunting things you’re likely to find anywhere near indie rock.” – Pitchfork. “She has a voice that, in mythological times, could have lured men to their deaths at sea, an intoxicating soprano drenched in gauzy reverb that hits bell-clear heights, lingers, and tapers off like rings of smoke.” The Boston Globe. Her six full length records have garnered critical acclaim throughout the world over the past decade and she returns to NYC to play a special, rare set.
