Virginie Yassef

Giancarlo Vulcano has worked closely with Virginie Yassef on her last few videos and installations. In 2007 he scored “Alloy,” a film with text by Julien Bismuth and featuring narration by Emily Hurst. In 2008 he created music for her installation in Paris at the
Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume. And in 2010 Vulcano scored her newest film, “Il y a 150 millions d’ann√©es…” depicting prehistoric beaches in France.

A shared love of science fiction scores, particularly Goldsmith’s score to “Planet of the Apes,” has been the starting pointing for an active and varied collaboration.

An album of “Music for VirginieYassef” is scheduled for release by Distant Second Records in Spring, 2011.
