Hector Zazou 1948-2008

French composer Hector Zazou died yesterday after an (unspecified) serious illness. There’s an obit here.

The only music of his I really know is the Songs From the Cold Seas set of collaborations with the likes of John Cale, Siouxsie and Björk, whose “Vísur Vatnsenda Rósu” is one of the best things she ever did.

Not an official video, but still a fitting track to remember him by.
