Yann Tiersen Shares Mogwai Remix Of 'A Midsummer Evening' And Secret Show Live Stream Details

On Monday 5th May Yann Tiersen will be broadcasting a very special show from an extraordinary secret location. The live stream will be available to watch from http://yanntiersen.com/ at 7pm BST

The new album, '8 (Infinity)' was conceived in Iceland, where work began on the album, and in Ushant Island, Brittany. The album was produced by Yann Tiersen and mixed by Gareth Jones with Yann Tiersen and Daniel Miller.

Layering of textures formed thematic threads that bind the album: the stones, the minerals, their infinite nature... Language too is integral to this album. 'Ar Maen Bihan', a story written by Emilie Quinquis in the Breton language, was translated by amiina to Icelandic ('Steinn'). Elsewhere on the album Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap) and Ólavur Jákupsson (a member of Tiersen's live band) both contributed tracks on the same theme - stones - Moffat's in English and Jákupsson's in Faroese.

Hailing from Brittany, Yann Tiersen is one of the most revered artists of his generation with a reputation first established by his studio albums (which included 1997 Cascade Street 1998's The Lighthouse and to 2005's Les Retrouvailles). The early albums were combined and used for the Amelie soundtrack (2001), earning him global recognition. Recent albums on Mute, Dust Lane (2010) and Skyline (2011) have seen his prominence build, along with projects such as the recent live score to the Fantômas series which he curated at the Théâtre de Châtelet with guests Tim Hecker, James Blackshaw, Loney Dear and Amiina.
