France’s premier export, and acclaimed composer of Amelie and Goodbye Lenin soundtracks, returns to Brighton.
Classically trained from an early age, Yann Tiersen’s roots in Brittany were sparked into life by a wave of influences stretching from The Cramps, Television, and Suicide.
It was his perfectly balanced Gallic soundtrack used in the cult French classic, Amelie, that brought Tiersen’s prodigious talent to the world’s attention, and subsequently Yann was quickly snapped up to score German Box Office hit, Goodbye Lenin.
His eclectic taste has inspired his previous six studio records, delighting audiences over the past decade with his use of a mesmerizing array of instruments ranging between toy pianos, accordions to full on rocking electric guitars.
With the sumptuous new album, Skyline, set to feature the likes of Efterklang and Peter Broderick, Yann has continued to push boundaries, and the new record promises to be his best yet!
