Yann Tiersen

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


Yann Tiersen is best known for the beguiling, award-winning soundtrack to Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s delightful movie Amelie. Much of the music from Amelie was drawn from Yann’s first four albums, and it brought us up to date with a composer/performer whose career in his native France is as successful as it is singular. Yann Tiersen recently composed the score to the German movie Goodbye Lenin! which won the Blue Angel Award at the Berlin film festival for Best European Movie. Yann Tiersen is an integral part of a French scene that has been a remarkable hotbed of new talent in recent years with artists such as Air, Daft Punk and Manu Chao successively taking their distinctive vision to international popularity. Breton-born Yann Tiersen is acknowledged back home as one of the leaders of a vibrant new movement in French indie music dubbed the ‘nouvelle generation’ or ‘neo-realists’. Don’t miss this show!
