• Emilie Simon

On Thursday night, as part of this year’s Decibelle Music and Culture Festival, French pop singer Emilie Simon makes her Chicago debut at Berlin. She’s probably best known for soundtracking the popular documentary La Marche de L’empereur—though when the film came out here, as March of the Penguins, it was accompanied by more conventional score from Alex Wurman. The producers apparently didn’t think North American audiences would’ve been able to handle Simon’s music.
