Jozef van Wissem


In 2013 composer/lutenist Jozef van Wissem won the Cannes Soundtrack Award for best score at the Cannes Film Festival for Only Lovers Left Alive, a vampire film by Jim Jarmusch. He is both an avant-garde composer and a baroque lutenist, and thus no stranger to dichotomy, according to the New York Times. Van Wissem collaborates with Jim Jarmusch and Zola Jesus. He made three records with Jarmusch and played both in Europe and in United States as a duo. Read more on Last.fm
In 2013 composer/lutenist Jozef van Wissem won the Cannes Soundtrack Award for best score at the Cannes Film Festival for Only Lovers Left Alive, a vampire film by Jim Jarmusch. He is both an avant-garde composer and a baroque lutenist, and thus no stranger to dichotomy, according to the New York Times. Van Wissem collaborates with Jim Jarmusch and Zola Jesus. He made three records with Jarmusch and played both in Europe and in United States as a duo. He does live scores to silent films, scored several award winning soundtracks and is also acting in film.

He makes music which is hypnotic, in a way that is just as challenging as more confrontational music. Van Wissem has been pushing the lute's agenda out of the academy and into more accessible circles (Pitchfork). He has performed over 1000 solo lute shows at concert venues around the world, including prestigious rock festivals like All Tomorrow's Parties and Primavera Sound, playing his all black, one-of-a-kind baroque lute custom build for him. "You do not need to understand [his] compositional idiom to be mesmerised by his hall-of-mirrors instrumentals" (MOJO), "his compositions are mystic and set in hypnotic darkness" (NPR's All Things Considered).

Wire Magazine described one of his albums as a masterpiece. http://www.jozefvanwissem.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
