His sound: a symphonic mix of folk, electronica, and pop that employs multiple instruments and non-instruments, such as the xylophone, accordion, and typewriter
Where you first heard this unconventional blend: on the Amélie soundtrack
Where his parents first heard it: when Tiersen was a 13-year-old violin prodigy who smashed his instrument and picked up the guitar
Since then: he’s recorded multiple studio albums and soundtracks, toured extensively, and amassed a loyal fan base
His latest album: 2014’s Infinity, which, in keeping with Tiersen’s avant-garde leanings and secret desire to be a math teacher, is titled with the infinity symbol
What to expect at his live show, according to the Village Voice: “…as on record, the songs are unusually brief and prone to slightly abrupt resolutions—it’s as if a rock jam were to be reconfigured along the lines of a piano prelude.”
