Yann Tiersen @ Irving Plaza April 27, 2012
Saw Yann Tiersen last night at Irving Plaza in New York. Based on my limited familiarity with his Goodbye Lenin soundtrack, I saw that he would be in the city for a show last night, so I made a point of going. Being a musician and student of many different musical styles, it was great to see the synergy and brilliance of his full band compositions. I didn't know whether it was going to be a solo act or a full show, so Wednesday night I Youtubed his live footage from 2012 and found the following video. Needless to say, the music is deep, visceral and cerebral, and moving. Excellent to see talent and creativity like this, versatile and expressive of the breadth of experience and emotion. Great show, happy that I found his music and didn't miss seeing it live. Check out the video below, and delve in his catalogue further. New ablum Skyline released on ANTI- records this month (released last year in Europe).
