Yann Tiersen

Unveils new video for ‘Meteorites’ feat. Aidan Moffat & Clémence Poésy, watch it here.

Yann Tiersen has unveiled the video for ‘Meteorites’, the extraordinary closing track on the latest album, ∞ (Infinity), watch it here:

 

Meteorites’ features Aidan Moffat’s mesmerising tale of a single moment in time, and the video – directed by RobisRob whose credits include Franz Ferdinand, OMD and Depeche Mode – sees the actress Clémence Poésy (known for her work in Harry Potter, The Tunnel and In Bruges) portrays Moffat’s lyrics.

In addition, Tiersen has announced a series of new dates in the US and Canada throughout November. 2014’s extensive touring has already seen Yann Tiersen perform throughout Italy, the US, Canada and Mexico as well as at London’s ICA for a very special launch featuring Aidan Moffat. The US dates in November follow a series of UK dates – Manchester Cathedral on 24 September and the Royal Festival Hall, London on 26 September.

Yann Tiersen recently set out on A Midsummer Cycling Tour – a unique cycling and signing tour across Brittany. Tiersen cycled 1000km through glorious Brittany countryside over six days, stopping en route at Independent Record Stores for record signings – watch the footage from A Midsummer Cycling Tour here: http://cycletour.yanntiersen.com/

∞ (Infinity) was conceived in Iceland, where work began on the album, and in Ushant Island, Brittany. The album was produced by Yann Tiersen and mixed by Gareth Jones with Yann Tiersen and Daniel Miller. Watch a playback of the album with Yann Tiersen in the Ushant Island Lighthouse Museum here:

Layering of textures formed thematic threads that bind the album: the stones, the minerals, their infinite nature… Language too is integral to this album. ‘Ar Maen Bihan’, a story written by Emilie Quinquis in the Breton language, was translated by amiina to Icelandic (‘Steinn’). Elsewhere on the album Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap) and Ólavur Jákupsson (a member of Tiersen’s live band) both contributed tracks on the same theme – stones – Moffat’s in English and Jákupsson’s in Faroese.

Hailing from Brittany, Yann Tiersen is one of the most revered artists of his generation with a reputation first established by his studio albums (which included 1997 Cascade Street 1998’s The Lighthouse and to 2005’s Les Retrouvailles). The early albums were combined and used for the Amelie soundtrack (2001), earning him global recognition. Recent albums on Mute, Dust Lane (2010) and Skyline (2011) have seen his prominence build, along with projects such as the recent live score to the Fantômas series which he curated at the Théâtre de Châtelet with guests Tim Hecker, James Blackshaw, Loney Dear and Amiina.
