I am planning to write and record my new album entirely outdoors, in wild spaces around the world.
Next year I will travel the world looking for suitable natural environments — places that are resonant and far away from civilisation — where I can work, letting the wilderness find its into my music.
I will document the writing and recording of the album on this blog.
Earlier this year Yann Tiersen embarked on the first of leg of his cycling world tour. Yann is planning to cycle across a different country every year, stopping along the way in towns off the beaten track to perform small concerts and meet local communities.
Back in July, Yann began his tour by cycling through Norway, crossing from island to island by ferry, bridge and tunnel, and cycling over 1000km in just ten days.
Along the way, Yann and his peloton of musicians played a series of shows, performing at folk festivals and small cafes, as well as putting on impromptu performances for a handful of locals in the great outdoors, with Norway’s spectacular landscape as a backdrop.
The cyclists were accompanied by a film crew who are currently preparing a short film about the Norway cycle adventure. The film is currently at the editing stage and will be available to watch online soon. Sign up to the mailing list below and we will message you as soon as the film becomes available!
First there was the Eusa piano book and now you will be able to buy the Eusa solo piano album recorded at Abbey Road, in London. The new album will be comprised of 10 new solo piano pieces, each related to a specific location on the island of Ushant off the coast of Brittany (‘Eusa’ in Breton), where Tiersen lives.
The album, released in September, will feature Yann Tiersen solo on the piano, accompanied only by a field recording from the exact spot referred to in the piece of music.
