French Multi-instrumentalist Yann Tiersen is winding down his US tour, and we are giving you a chance to see him in Portland on Sunday June 15. In addition to a pair of tickets to the Wonder Ballroom show, the winner will also receive a vinyl copy of Tiersen’s latest LP, ∞ (Infinity) via mail (details at the bottom of this post), courtesy of Mute Records.
In his two-decade-long career, Tiersen has explored and captured all facets of sounds. Whether soundtracking for films like Amélie or recording his solo pieces with collaborations from the likes of The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon, the French maestro’s music is boundless as the expansive sea that touches the shores of his native Brittany. On ∞, Tiersen offers his most sweeping work to date, drawing from his classical training and penchant for post-punk. With contributions from musicians in multitude of countries, his eighth album is a record for the planet, not only bridging nations but also nature and human, resulting in a panoramic opus where we are invited into Tiersen’s story but leaving us to roam and reflect.
