a noirish score that is in turns sinister, quietly profound & thrilling, drawing influence from French impressionist composers, Brazillian guitar music, musique concrete & the works of film composers David Shire & Pino Donaggio.

In celebration of the centenary of Louis Feuillade’s 'Fantômas' silent film series, James Blackshaw was invited by Yann Tiersen to perform a live score to the 5th & final film, 'Le Faux Magistrat'. Blackshaw then involved experimental musicians Duane Pitre & Simon Scott (of Slowdive) who contributed drums, electronics, synth, bowed guitar, bass & more to Blackshaw’s nylon string guitar & grand piano, with multi-instrumentalist Charlotte Glasson adding violin, vibraphone & several wind instruments to the 75 minute long work.
