Rue des Cascades / Cascade Street (CD)


Rue des Cascades is the second studio album by the musician and composer Yann Tiersen. The album, with the exclusion of two pieces, "Naomi" and "La Vie quotidienne", is a collection of short pieces recorded with toy piano, harpsichord, violin, accordion, mandolin, and other conventional and unconventional musical instruments such as an old typewriter in "Pas si simple". The title track, which was used about one year later for the film score of the Palme d'Or nominated French drama film The Dreamlife of Angels, was sung by French soloist singer Claire Pichet, who also provided vocals on the track "Naomi", a song that features words from Allen Ginsberg's poem "Kaddish".
