Yann Tiersen - Discography (21 albums)

Guillaume Yann Tiersen (born 23 June 1970) is a French musician and composer known internationally for composing the score to the Jean-Pierre Jeunet movie Amélie.

His music is recognized by its use of a large variety of instruments in relatively minimalist compositions, often with a touch of either European classical music or french folk music, using primarily the piano, accordion or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, ondes martenot, harpsichord and typewriter.

He has been compared to musicians like Chopin, Erik Satie, Phillip Glass and Michael Nyman!

was curious to see if there's something i haven't yet. and really, 'Le Cyclope de la Mer' was missing in my collection.

Le Cyclope de la Mer

Un film de Philippe JULLIEN

Musique de Yann TIERSEN

To escape loneliness, Ro, a Cyclops lighthouse keeper, invents a colony of wood and cork characters to which he gives voices and movement. This is Ro's life, until the day he finds a glodfish on the lighthouse platform.

Isolé au beau milieu de la mer, un phare inutile, habité par un gardien qui s'ennuie, le cyclope. Pour combler sa solitude et tromper son ennui, il peuple son monde de pantins de bois et de liège auxquels il donne vie.
Tout bascule le jour où un pauvre petit poisson rouge aux grands yeux innocents vient s'échouer sur le rivage...

there is a two part video clip of this animated shortfilm, running time: 13 min

'He has been compared to musicians like Chopin, Erik Satie, Phillip Glass and Michael Nyman!'

comparing two artists depends of the point of view; to chopin, i don't see any relation. erik satie - maybe the choice of the instruments.
maybe, you don't know satie. me, i like him. read here:
