Biography

Guillaume Yann Tiersen (born 23 June 1970) is a French musician and composer. His music is recognized by its use of a large variety of instruments in relatively minimalist compositions, often with a touch of either European classical music or French folk music, using primarily the piano, accordion or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, ondes martenot, ...

Editorial Reviews

Already a major performer in his native France and throughout Europe, classical trained composer Yann Tiersen is best known in the US for his arthouse hit film soundtracks Amelie and Goodbye Lenin. "Dust Lane", Tiersen's official Anti and US debut, is a cinematic orchestral pop record that recalls the swagger of classic Serge Gainsbourg, the bravura of early Eno and the faded music-hall grandeur of Brits like Pulp and Divine Comedy as it veers from sunny folk-inspired songs to full choir workouts.

Example: In the song "Dust Lane", for exampl it is inevitable to think about some wonderful bands like Godspeed You Black Emperor!.

Fantastic layers of music and sound textures with a nice balance of Rock.

Yann Tiersen's score for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 2000 French comedy, Amelie, remains, many insist, the great film score of its time. Rather than relying on classical composition (as do most big budget Hollywood films) or the quirky minimalism of most American indies, Tiersen's name-making score established the composer's name by utilizing, for example, accordions and harpsichords in the place of cellos and violins. Big, fancy, details productions that sounded like nothing before, yet were organic and dramatic. Following the Amelie score, which was never properly released in the U.S., Tiersen continued making solo records across the pond, eventually composing another well-thought-of score for a movie called Goodbye, Lenin - also great. Now, all these years later and after a huge amount of success in France, Tiersen has released his first proper stateside record, Dust Lane, for U.S. indie Anti- Records.

Though Americans know Tiersen mostly as a whimsical-yet-technical composer, he has, in his native land, released music that can be grouped in with a number of different genres, including post-rock and even progressive rock. For Dirt Lane Tiersen has taken the guitar-driven style he's flirted with along the way, creating an eight-song epic that should alert a new fan base, likely comprised mostly of 20- and 30-something males who dabble in early 70s electric jazz, loved Radiohead deeply for a period and now talk mostly about Canadian collectives, "movements," Sigur Ros, Mogwai and, probably, French films.

The strings and accordions, xylophones, harpsichords and melodicas pop up here and there, but the focus is on the electric guitar, which Tiersen is masterful - if not showy - with when it comes to composing.

As long as Yann continues to create beautiful music, I will be happy to listen to him explore his world. Yann composed 'Dust Lane' after the passing of his mother and a close friend and it is reflected in this release. I personally feel dark music is the most beautiful because it comes from a real place in the spirit. I think Yann honorably displayed his vulnerability as his music oscillated through the many emotions of grief and growth. I will enjoy this cd over and over again. If you like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion, Sigur Ros, Mum, old Porcupine Tree, and Explosions In The Sky, I can safely say this will be a good addition to your collection.

This album, and Yann Tiersen's next release, "Skyline," gave me a thrill similar to hearing a brand new Pink Floyd record for the first time, back in the 70's. Fantastic layers of music and sound textures with a nice balance of Rock.Skyline

Well ok, I ripped open the 'Dust Lane' delivery today and whipped it on the player. Hmmmm... sometimes music grows on you, more often it doesn't.

I was immediately captivated by the "Comtine D'un Autre Ete: L'apres Midi" piece in the movie 'Amelie' and have been a huge Tiersen fan ever since. As the discs stacked up 'Tabarly', 'Good Bye Lenin', 'rue des Cascades', 'Le Phare', 'L'Absente' rose to the top. 'Tabarly' was a recent treasure but is about a hundred times too brief.

On classical music sites if seen the snoots turn up their noses and exclaim that "Yann Tiersen is not classical music". Well they're wrong--just because music isn't centuries old it doesn't mean it's not classical music. But time changes everything. Now they're right. 'Dust Lane' joins the ranks of 100,000 or more electronic easy listening music offerings.

That's not to say it's not good in that category. But it's not special. It's just mediocre or at best average. This may seem harsh but is substantiated by the fact that there are a number of used copies available at a bargain rate just 2 days after the album's initial release. Folks "voting with their feet".

What was "new" was the classical/folk/pop combination of the former songs like 'monochrome' and long list of stunning solo piano pieces. For years I've searched for material like Tiersen's without too much success and avidly awaited his new releases. In that vein, for minimalist material the similarity of Detektivbyran is pretty cool. And if you like Tiersen's piano stuff check out Karen Marie Garrett and definitely don't miss Ludovico Einaudi.

The sticker on the 'Dust Lane' wrapper proclaims Tiersen has gone in a "bold new direction". Yann, come back! Come back!!!

I was amazed at this album. Yann Tiersen is a musical genius. The only thing better than this album is to go see him live! He has great musicians backing him who are as multi-talented as he is. Get this album!!!!!!!!

Excellent album. Had heard a variety of Yann Tiersen's music already, particularly soundtracks. Definitely lived up to my expectations of incredible music while always exploring some new areas as well.
