French composer Yann Tiersen

Yann Tiersen On Tour

June 11, 2014 – June 18, 2014
Multiple locations – Utah, Oregon, Washington, California

French composer Yann Tiersen will be tourning in Salt Lake City (UT), Portland (OR), Seattle (WA), San Francisco (CA) and Santa Cruz (CA) to promote his new album ∞ (Infinity).

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′s Cascade Street, 1998’s The Lighthouse and 2005’s Les Retrouvailles. The early albums were combined and used for the Amélie soundtrack (2001), earning him global recognition. Recent albums on Mute, Dust Lane (2010) and Skyline (2011) has 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.

∞ (Infinity) is the follow up to 2011’s critically acclaimed Skyline (described by MOJO as “life affirming”, by Clash as a “…remarkable musical talent” and in Drowned In Sound as “euphoric”), and will be premiered at an exclusive live performance at the ICA in London on May 14th (which sold out in less than 5 hours).

Tiersen has worked with native language speakers to include tracks sung and spoken in Breton (Ar Maen Bihan), Faroese (Grønjørð) and Icelandic on (Steinn). Drawing upon these dialogues that are so rich in tradition and heritage Tiersen was inspired to create three video prologues, each offering a different, and slightly other worldly, window onto one of the three Islands as introductions to his new record ∞ (Infinity).
