Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse 15 NovemberTiersen with Stuart A. InTiersen released his fifth studio album Les Retrouvailles. The documentary was released on Juneexactly ten years after Tabarly's death. His body was recovered five weeks later off the coast of Ireland by a French fishing trawler. The documentary, narrated by Tabarly himself, traces his sporting career until his last meal in Ushant. The album was two years in the making and was largely recorded in UshantFrance. Various 1280sDance parts were recorded in the Philippines.
The Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse is preoccupied with mortality; during the recording sessions Tiersen lost his mother and a Shigeru Suzuki Cosmos 51 friend. The recordings started out as simple song based tracks with Tiersen playing acoustic guitarmandolin The Offspring The Offspring bouzouki.
New layers were added to the recordings creating a Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse complex sound. Then an array of vintage synthesisers and electric guitars were added to create Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse textures. InTiersen also contributed to the tribute album to cross-genre, experimental The Third Wave Arranged And Conducted By George Duke Here And Now group Coil The Dark Age of Love by This Immortal Coil, a one-off tribute formation, and to Li f ethe fourth Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse studio album by hip-hop artist Sage Francis.
October saw the European release of his seventh studio album, Skyline. The nine-track album, a follow on from Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse Dust Lanewas once again recorded at Tiersen's home on the island of Ushant in the south-western Howard Menger Authentic Music From Another Planet of the Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse Channelwith further parts recorded in ParisSan FranciscoBerlinand Nashville.
It was about an hour of krautrockelectronicand experimental music involving a dozen of synthesizers and analog keyboards with the first three pieces of the set list taken from Dust Lane and the remaining five from Skyline. Tiersen's music is influenced by Yann Tiersen The Lighthouse classical training he received when he was a child and by the American and British punk subcultureand by the music he used to listen to as a teenager.
His musical style is deceptively simple to recognize but difficult to catalogue. It varies greatly from one album to the next and with the passage of time. His melancholy music and compositional techniques combine elements of Classical and folk music with pop and rock.
Tiersen started playing piano and violin at a young age. Tiersen only returned to his childhood instrument years later after searching for string sounds to sample. Tiersen plays all of these instruments both in the studio and in concert. Tiersen's ability to compose music that can be easily used for film scores was evident from the beginning. All tracks from his debut album, La Valse des monstreswere conceived for stage adaptations and plays.
Tiersen has always composed his music in solitude, starting from simple melodies to which he added subsequent layers.
His first album, La Valse des monstresis almost entirely performed by him alone playing all the instruments, with the exception of "Quimper 94" and "Le Banquet" with drums and charleston provided by Laurent Heudes.
