Joan of Arc

Jeanne d'Arc armed and riding her white charger

Perfume is the story of a murder by a criminal mastermind set in eighteenth century Paris, Joan of Arc is the victim of a murder by the state (England and Burgundy) set in fifteenth century Rouen.

Fashion by Dad recounts elements of both tales using visceral texts and music that explore the relationship between the stench of humanity, cruelty and our sense of the ideal. Cohen’s love song between Joan and the fire resonates with a crisp intensity in this context.

Hear the radio cut with the music here on Fashion by Dad’s website, or hear it in the context of the narrative of the full episode on the Fashion by Dad Soundcloud playlist.
