“For this special event, fellow Tindersticks members David Boulter, Neil Fraser, Dan KcKinna and Earl Harvin join Staples, augmented by additional musicians on strings and brass. The full ensemble will do dramatic justice to Denis’s visionary cinema through gorgeously dark-hued music that blends subtle guitar strumming and delicate violin arpeggios with otherworldly percussion and atmospheric washes of symphonic color over which Staples croons in his inimitable baritone. “Working with Claire makes us shift our vision,” Staples has said. “We come out the other end of it and we always feel kind of changed.””
