About Yann Tiersen

Yann Tiersen (born 23 June 1970) is a French musician and composer . His musical career is split between studio recordings, music collaborations and film soundtracks songwriting. His music incorporates a large variety of classical & contemporary instruments: primarily the electric guitar, the piano, synthesisers or the violin, together with folkoric instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, harpsichord, piano accordion or even typewriter.

Tiersen is often mistaken for a soundtracks composer, as he is saying himself: "I'm not a composer and I really don't have a classical background," but his real focus is on touring and recording studio albums - which are often used for film soundtracks: his most notorious one was for the 2001 French film Amélie starring Audrey Tautou, it was primarily made up of tracks taken from his first three studio albums.
