职 业 音乐家
他的音乐作品中通常使用钢琴，手风琴和几种小提琴作为主要乐器，但也有多首乐曲突破了这种限制。乐评人常把他和风格相近的Erik Satie、Nino Rota及the Penguin Café Orchestra进行比较。扬·提尔森的所有唱片，包括获奖无数的电影原声配乐作品，均由EMI公司出版发行。在Rennes音乐学院接受古典音乐教育，还曾在Nantes音乐学院和Boulogne音乐学院学习过。在成名之前他曾为一些剧本和短片谱写背景音乐，但并无特别出众的作品。Tiersen的演奏会风格变化很大。Tiersen自己弹奏多种乐器：在一些舒缓的曲子中他弹奏钢琴，手风琴和小提琴，在节奏强烈的曲目中则弹奏电吉他。
2001年为电影《天使爱美丽》（《Amelie From Montmartre》）配乐，由此获得广泛关注，名噪一时。在《天使爱美丽》中，钢琴、小提琴、手风琴、鼓声、口琴层层叠叠，色彩饱满飘摇，异想如肥皂泡漫天飞舞。扬·提尔森用他的音乐来告诉你一个魔幻世界里的浪漫巴黎。《我从未去过》，手风琴和小提琴奏响了Amelie异想世界的序幕；《另一个夏天的童谣》，钢琴主调的悠扬旋律是左岸的迷离风情和Amelie世界里的小小忧伤；《爱美丽的华尔兹》，优雅欢畅，仿似乎与你在袅袅晨雾的塞纳河边翩翩起舞；《野兽的华尔兹》，轻飘飘的阳光中仿佛有着红酒和香槟的味道……扬·提尔森把我们带入了一个奇思妙想的世界，“犹如飘荡在春日的秋千上”，让人充满了一种无法言喻的幸福感。古典优雅是扬·提尔森的杀手锏，诠释着古老而时尚的巴黎风情；而丰富的层次感又给我们带来了全新的听觉享受，清凉得如同祛痱的花露水，提神又醒脑。
2003年2月和9月发行原声带《Good Bye Lenin!》。
2004年10月发行录音室专辑《Yann Tiersen & Shannon Wright》。
Life and career
Yann Tiersen (born 23 June 1970) is a French musician and composer. His musical career is split between studio albums, collaborations and film soundtracks. His music involves a large variety of instruments; primarily the guitar, synthesizer or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, harpsichord, accordion and typewriter.
Tiersen is often mistaken for a composer of soundtracks, himself saying "I'm not a composer and I really don't have a classical background", but his real focus is on touring and studio albums which just happen to often be suitable for film. His most famous soundtrack for the film ‘Amélie’ was primarily made up of tracks taken from his first three studio albums.
Yann Tiersen was born in Brest in the Finistère département in Brittany in northwestern France, in 1970, into a French family of Belgian and Norwegian origins.He started learning piano at the age of four, violin at the age of six, and received classical training at several musical academies, including those in Rennes, Nantes, and Boulogne. In the early 1980s when he was a teenager, he was influenced by the punk subculture, and bands like The Stooges and Joy Division.
Tiersen's debut album, ‘La Valse des monstres’, limited to 1,000 copies only, was released in June 1995 by independent record label Sine Terra Firma, and then it was reissued by Nancy-based record label Ici d'ailleurs in 1998 as the second album of its catalogue.
One year later, in April 1996, he released ‘Rue des cascades’, a collection of short pieces recorded with toy piano, harpsichord, violin, accordion, and mandolin.Tiersen rose to domestic fame upon the release of his third studio album, ‘Le Phare’ (English: The Light House) in 1998.In that period Tiersen provided a new arrangement and played strings, vibraphone, bell, mandolin, electric guitar, and bass guitar for the song "À ton étoile" by French rock band Noir Désir on their 1998 remix album ‘One Trip/One Noise’,recorded background music for the award-winning and multi-nominated film ‘The Dreamlife of Angels ‘(French: ‘La Vie rêvée des anges’),for André Téchiné's ‘Alice et Martin’, released in 1998, and Christine Carrière's ‘Qui plume la lune?’, released in 1999.
In 1999, Tiersen with The Married Monk, Claire Pichet, and Olivier Mellano, released his first collaboration album, ‘Tout est calme’. The 26 minutes, 10 tracks mini album peaked at number 45 on the French Albums Chart.The album produced one single, "Les Grandes marées", and Tiersen also featured on The Divine Comedy's single "Gin Soaked Boy" released on that same year, on three tracks for Françoiz Breut's second studio album ‘Vingt à Trente Mille Jours’.
Tiersen remained relatively unknown outside France until the release of his score for the acclaimed film Amélie (Original French title: ‘Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain’, English: ‘The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain’) in 2001.
From 15 to 17 February 2002, Tiersen with many of the collaborators who participated in the recording sessions for ‘L'Absente’ plus Claire Pichet, violinists Nicholas Stevens and Renaud Lhoest, bassist Jean-François Assy, viola player Olivier Tilkin, and uilleann pipes, bagpipes, and low whistle player Ronan Le Bars, performed live at the Cité de la Musique (English: City of Music) in Paris. Part of these three concerts went on to form Tiersen's second live album ‘C'était ici’ (English:’ It Was Here’), which was released through EMI France on 30 September 2002.
Tiersen's skills as a composer of film scores were much in demand, and the soundtrack for ‘Amélie’ was soon followed by the film score for ‘Good Bye, Lenin!’, a 2003 German tragicomedy film directed by Wolfgang Becker.Tiersen was the recipient of the German Film Awards for Outstanding Music. On 15 November 2003, Tiersen with Stuart A. Staples, the lead singer of indie band Tindersticks, actress and singer Jane Birkin, singer and vocalist for Cocteau Twins Elizabeth Fraser, singer and songwriter Christophe Miossec, and Dominique A released ‘3 titres inédits au profit de la FIDH’ (English: ‘3 New Tracks for the Benefit of FIDH’), a 3-track CD that was part of the ‘On Aime, On Aide’ benefit collection for raising funds for the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH).
Tiersen's list of collaborators continues to grow album after album and in October 2004 released ‘Yann Tiersen & Shannon Wright’, a collaboration album with American singer-songwriter Shannon Wright, and, in the same year, he is featured on The Divine Comedy's album ‘Absent Friends’. In 2005, Tiersen released his fifth studio album ‘Les Retrouvailles’.
His third live album, ‘On Tour’, which was released together with a DVD, directed by Aurélie du Boys, about the tour, in November 2006.In 2006, he also released two singles, "La Mancha" and "La Rade", and he was featured on ‘The Endless Rise of the Sun’, third studio album by electronic group Smooth, ‘Raides à la ville’ extended play by Katel, and ‘13m²’ by David Delabrosse.
The year 2008 saw his return after a five years absence as a composer of film scores when he provided the background music for ‘Tabarly’,a Pierre Marcel's documentary film about the French sailor, two-time champion of the Single-Handed Trans-Atlantic Race, and father of French yachting Éric Tabarly.
October 2010 saw the release of Tiersen’s sixth studio album titled ‘Dust Lane’. The album was two years in the making and was largely recorded in Ushant, France.
October 2011 saw the European release of his seventh studio album, ‘Skyline’. The nine-track album, a follow on from his ‘Dust Lane’, was once again recorded at Tiersen's home on the island of Ushant in the south-western end of the English Channel, with further parts recorded in Paris, San Francisco, Berlin, and Nashville.
Tiersen was also chosen by Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in March 2012 in Minehead, England.’Skyline’ was released in North America via ANTI- Records on 17 April 2012, and it was followed by the ‘Skyline Tour’ with dates in the United States, Canada, Iceland, Spain, Portugal, France, Slovak Republic, Austria, Finland, and the United Kingdom.
