Out of the Box Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is now Out of the Box Saturday. It's all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. I'll cover something sing | songy one week, and artsy | fartsy the next.

I know, I know I know I skipped this post last week. I actually started writing it, got side tracked, and more sidetracked. 

One of my favorite movies is Amélie. Have you ever seen that movie? I think everyone should. Well...except for kids because they have nude scenes. Otherwise it's a super great, feel good movie. 

This week I'm covering the musician responsible for all the music in the movie Amélie. His name is Yann Tiersen. I've never looked him up. I do however like his music. Yann Tiersen is a French musician. His musical career is split between studio albums, collaborations and film soundtracks. His music involves a large variety of instruments; primarily the guitar, synthesizer or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, harpsichord, accordion and typewriter.

More from his soundtracks:

This is more of his newer experimental music:

I haven't seen the movie. I don't think I've even heard of it before, but now I have to see if it's available on Netflix!

I have never even heard of Amélie, but I will add it to my list.

I've watched Amelie. I love the actress! Think she was in the Da Vinci Code too with Tom Hanks

Never heard or seen the movie. But then,... I don't see a lot of movies.
