Jordan Vauvert Comme Deleted scenes, forgotten dreams, Patience (After Sebald) se détache dans la discographie de The Caretaker puisque Leyland Kirby y compose une bande-originale pour le film du même nom. Pas de jazz mais des reprises en boucle de passages du Voyage d'hiver de Schubert (qui n'était pas le dernier à utiliser la répétition — un maître spirituel ?) ; pas de "taches" dans la musique mais plutôt un effet de neige comme sur une vieille radio — assez proche de Paysage d'Hiver. Une solitude extrême. Favorite track: Now the night is over.

The Caretaker returns with a long-in-the-making soundtrack to acclaimed filmmaker Grant Gee's documentary about German writer WG Sebald. 'Patience (After Sebald)' is a multi-layered film essay on landscape, art, history, life and loss - an exploration of the work and influence of German writer WG Sebald (1944-2001), told via a long walk through coastal East Anglia tracking his most famous book 'The Rings Of Saturn'. The source material for 'Patience' was sourced from Franz Schubert's 1827 piece 'Winterreise' and subjected to his perplexing processes, smudging and rubbing isolated fragments into a dust-caked haze of plangent keys, strangely resolved loops and de-pitched vocals which recede from view as eerily as they appear.
