Yann Tiersen

Reveals a Video ‘Live At The Barbican’

YANN TIERSEN

EUSA – OUT NOW

LISTEN TO HIS FIRST SOLO PIANO ALBUM

WATCH TIERSEN LIVE AT THE BARBICAN

po.st/YannTiersenBarbican

 

5/5 – RECORD COLLECTOR – “EUSA is a faultless work”
4/5 – MOJO – “… brimming with aching melody”
8/10 – DROWNED IN SOUND “With each listen you uncover another facet not just of of this complex and charming album, but of yourself too.”
7/10 – UNCUT “… his most delicate release since 2003’s Good Bye Lenin!”
4/5 – THE GUARDIAN “…devastatingly effective way with a melody” live review
4/5 – THE INDEPENDENT “innovative, constantly shifting and seeking to build on that landscape he evokes with each note.” live review

 

YANN TIERSEN releases EUSA, his first album of solo piano works today. EUSA was first conceived as a book of sheet music, which was performed across Europe on a sold out tour which include two nights at the Barbican.

Location is important to everything Yann Tiersen does, and here, Tiersen has taken his connection with the land one step further. The collection of 10 solo piano pieces form a musical map of Tiersen’s home island Ushant (‘Eusa’ in the local Breton language) which is positioned in the Celtic sea between Brittany and Cornwall.

Each track was conceived in and named after a location on the island. Initially tracks were only available as sheet music, with each piano piece accompanied by a photograph of the location and a field recording.  For his album he took things a step further – firstly Tiersen manipulated his original field recordings to create a subtle drone of the natural noises on the island, then took everything to Studio 1 at Abbey Road and recorded the solo piano.

Between each piece we hear the sounds of the island, and Tiersen’s improvisations that are all titled ‘Hent’. Hent translates from Breton to English as Path and with each one Tiersen leads the listener across the island landscape to a new location.

His full immersion into the rustic way of life and his admiration for desolate, sparsely-inhabited landscapes all seem a far cry from the cutesy postcard image of Montmartre and the soundtrack for the film Amélie (Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 2001), that some might best recognise Tiersen from. In

fact this album sees a more stripped back production last seen on the collaborative soundtrack for Good Bye Lenin! (Wolfgang Becker, 2003) and before that, of course, on his debut, La Valse Des Monstres, originally written for a theatrical adaptation of Tod Browning’s Freaks, and later mined for the Amélie soundtrack.
