With his whimsical, melancholy music, Yann Tiersen has become a sought-after composer. Borrowing from French folk music, chanson, musette waltz, and street music, as well as rock, avant-garde, and classical and minimalist influences, Tiersen’s deceptively simple style has been likened to Chopin, Erik Satie, Philip Glass, and Michael Nyman. Tiersen gained worldwide acclaim for his score to Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Amélie, and Wolfgang Becker’s German tragicomedy, Goodbye Lenin! When asked to discuss his esthetic, Yann Tiersen describes it perfectly, “Let’s live in an enormous world of sound we can use randomly, with no rules at all. Let’s play with sound, forget all knowledge and instrumental skills, and just use instinct.”
