Mystical, contemplative, instinctive: the music of Yann Tiersen is more than ever steeped in the landscapes of his native Brittany. For a good reason: the author of the soundtrack from Amélie has been living for the past few years on Ouessant, a far-flung island with some 800 inhabitants. This wild environment resonates in every aspect of his ballads, which sound like they were sculpted by Mother Nature. Created with Gareth Jones, Depeche Mode’s producer, his latest album ALL is the first to come out of his new studio, built in a former night club on the island. On the program: an atmospheric ecosystem that blends pared-down piano melodies, field recordings, and lyrics sung in Breton, Faroese, and Swedish. This summer, the composer and multi-instrumentalist will bewitch the audience of the Montreux Jazz Festival for the very first time.
