YANN TIERSEN

Yann Tiersen’s ninth studio album, and his first solo piano album, is named EUSA, the Breton name for the island of Ushant. Located 30 kilometres off the west coast of Brittany in the Celtic Sea, the island is where Tiersen lives and, with EUSA, he has created an album of sparse beauty. Living on the island Tiersen is immersed in remote, rugged natural surroundings every day and his objective with EUSA was to make a musical map, a tool for the listener to navigate and experience his surroundings. Tiersen doesn’t want to tell the listener what to think or feel, rather EUSA is intended as a guide for the listener.
