Tim Gane (Stereolab) & Sean O'Hagan (The High Llamas) team up to compose and record a film soundtrack for a french comedy “La Vie d'artiste” that combines the best of their own oeuvres. This is the first time they've worked together as a double act since their one-record band, Turn On, released a self-titled album in 1996.
When originally approached by the director, Marc Fitoussi (a huge fan of both the High Llamas and Stereolab), he wanted them to deliver something that captured what he loved about both bands and reached the heights of classic film composers like Ennio Morricone, François de Roubaix and Piero Picconi. A big challenge and one that took a lot of time to achieve, but they rose it and delivered both an apt and outstanding original score.
The soundtrack, a humble touch of everything we ever loved about Stereolab and the High Llamas, gracefully reflects the cast as they each strive to create their own destinies.
