Editorial Reviews

Constellation Records will be releasing a very special 5 CD/5 LP box set compiling all of the soundtracks that members of Tindersticks have created for the films of French director Claire Denis over the past 15 years. The set gathers all six of the Claire Denis soundtracks written and performed by Tindersticks or their members; Stuart A. Staples (for L'Intrus) and Dickon Hinchliffe (for Vendredi Soir), alongside four others credited to the full band. Four of the six soundtracks are previously unreleased, including the score for her most recent and hugely acclaimed White Material (which has also received Criterion treatment); all of the film scores recorded since 2002 are issued in this set for the first time. The CD and LP sets each come in a slipcase box made from deluxe uncoated black paperboard with a custom die-cut window and metallic cover-print. Discs are housed in printed sleeves, each of which features an iconic image from the corresponding film that can interact with the window-cut box. Also included is a 48 page perfect-bound booklet of color film stills and an essay (in English and in French translation) by renowned music writer Michael Hill (who has also contributed liner notes for collections by Lou Reed, Sam Cooke, The Replacements and others).

These five discs -- the scores for five remarkable films by Claire Denis -- encapsulate some of the most aware and deft compositional work you could ask for. Touching on many contemporary forms, carefully constructed as well as highly organic passages give shape to an approachable new music, propelled by diverse instrumentation and shaded with sounds that extend beyond the instruments. The performances are the equal to some of the finest to be heard in the works of their peers (without making comparisons Clogs and Rachel's are a few that come to mind). Distinct and original, with a complete sense of its own identity, timbral and harmonic presence, great touch and dynamics. And as well as these work as film music, finding their way into the scenes instead of simply sitting on top of or underneath a stream of images (my opinion only, no factual observation here) unlike many, many film scores this music functions as well outside of that context as it does within. Boxed with a wonderfully written and designed (English and French) 58 page + cover booklet, the presentation is classic Constellation: uncoated papers, foil-struck and opaque inked typography, high-key full color images on card weight papers. The astute packaging derives from the hand-made character and high craftsmanship of the music and of the films. Nothing lacking, everything considered, everything highly expressive.

I love this group..Let me start by saying that as well as that I own all of there"official" recordings thus far..
I think as a composer that there is a lot here to pull from the groups sense of mood,color,shading and dynamic but..
After repeated listening it just doesn't keep my interest as a stand alone set.I wonder if it will come to grow on me but since a lot of the pieces are very short and don't really seem to have much time to grow,I just feel that it plays a bit like an oddity played,drawing ones attention not for the wonderful but more for the quirky oddness...
