Acclaimed French musician Christine Ott, whose collaborations include with Yann Tiersen, Radiohead, and Tindersticks, performs her unique soundtrack for Tabu for the first time in the UK at Leeds Town Hall. F.W. Murnau’s last silent film classic, the poetic and moving Tabu is the story of an impossible love​ ​on Bora-Bora island, between Matahi, a young pearl diver, and Reri, a young woman promised to the gods. Christine Ott's soundtrack alternates modern classical piano pieces with avant-garde tracks on the mysterious and mesmerising Ondes martenot. ‘Ott’s piano becomes a waterfall, a river, an ocean...’ (Cahiers du Cinema)
