Tompkins Square 2xLP gatefold vinyl release of a 2013 live performance of the score to the final film in Louis Feuillade’s Fantômas silent film series, titled Fantomas: Le Faux Magistrat.

Release date: July 7, 2014.

To celebrate the centenary of Louis Feuillade’s Fantômas Fantomas silent film series, James Blackshaw was invited by Yann Tiersen to perform a 75 minute live score to the fifth and final film – Le Faux Magistrat – at the Théâtre de Châtelet, Paris on October 31st 2013.

The performance was streamed live on the European ARTE channel.

Tim Hecker, Amiina, Yann Tiersen and Loney Dear also performed during the event.

Duane Pitre and Simon Scott (of Slowdive) contributed drums, electronics, synth, bowed guitar, bass and more to Blackshaw’s nylon string guitar and grand piano.

Charlotte Glasson adding violin, vibraphone and several wind instruments.

Written during the course of a few months, Blackshaw drew influences from French impressionist composers, Brazillian guitar music, musique concrete and the works of other film composer such as David Shire and Pino Donaggio.

This is a noirish score that turns sinister, is quietly profound and, of course, is thrilling.
