Yann Tiersen

Reveals Brand New Track ‘Kereon’

TAKEN FROM HIS FIRST SOLO PIANO ALBUM

EUSA – OUT 30 SEPTEMBER 2016

“There’s an elegant languor to his music and an evocative quality that allows the audience to close their eyes and put their own images to it.” – The Herald Edinburgh International Festival live review

 

“…devastatingly effective way with a melody” – The Guardian 4* live review

 

“innovative, constantly shifting and seeking to build on that landscape he evokes with each note.” – The Independent 4* live review

 

Following two sold out performances at the Edinburgh International Festival, YANN TIERSEN has unveiled a brand new track, taken from his forthcoming album, EUSA, out on 30 September 2016.

Listen to Kereon here: http://po.st/YannTiersenKereon

EUSA, recorded at Abbey Road, is Tiersen’s first ever album of solo piano music, and follows 2014’s album release, ∞ (Infinity).

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, of course, that 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.

Yann Tiersen recently premiered the compositions in full on a sold out tour that included two Barbican dates and two performances at the Edinburgh International. The 2016 tour continues in October, with more dates to be announced.
