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.
In 2010, Jarmusch curated the music festival All Tomorrow’s Parties and joined us as a guest DJ on All Songs Considered to talk about his picks including Sunn 0)))/Boris, Raekwon, Hope Sandoval and T-Model Ford, who all make music with a rather dark veneer. In his own music, Jarmusch can usually be found playing dense, languid guitar textures — this recording with Jozef Van Wissem is a fine example. Van Wissem plays the lute with his heart equally in the 17th and 21st century. His love for the Baroque seems equal to his love for cut and paste techniques and finding adventure in the antique.
Together the two musicians have made a record called The Mystery of Heaven and it’s out Nov 13th. Here’s a song from the record, called “Etimasia.”

“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.
