Mon Oncle – Jacques Tati

January 10th, 2008 · 3 Comments

This track is taken directly from the soundtrack of Jacques Tati’s Mon Oncle (1958). This score is partially available on commercial recording (Extraits Des Bandes Originales on Polygram), but the recording lacks the pauses on the music that exist within the film soundtrack. During the correlating sequence, the soundtrack drops out completely to accentuate a gag in the last sequence of this film.

    Was wondering, who is it that wrote this song specificaly? Was it Franck Barcellini,
    Alain Romans or Norbert Glanzberg?

    Ik heb de film reeds in 1960 gezien en ik ben nog steeds begeesterd van zijnfijne, klare, licht voetige muziek.
    Ik zie alles weer gebeuren wanneer alles wordt afgebroken om re moderniseren. Het jongetje dat geniet wanneer hij samen met zijn oom op de hoek van de straat een pannekoek mag eten uit het vuistje. Kortom ik nog steeds kippevel bij het hore van dez muziek.

    Andrew, I finally got hold of the cd and the composer is Franck Barcellini. A late answer, I know, but still. Thought you might still want to know
