Yann Tiersen: a beautiful type of mourning


Yann Tiersen became internationally renowned thanks to the wonderful soundtrack he wrote for of the acclaimed film Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (Jean Pierre Jeunet, 2001). Since then, he has been somewhat stigmatized for just making instrumental, folk, minimalistic music. However, his remarkable talent has proved that his musical range is way wider. For Dust lane (2010), his latest album, Tiersen employed some sort of a rock ensemble (drums, synth, bass and guitars) to record his new pieces. Additionally, they all sing. That being said, it's accurate to state that Dust lane is an extraordinary record among Tiersen's discography. Its dark sonority is melancholic yet enchanting, due to the fact that he wrote many of the songs after his mother and a close friend of his died. Dust lane, while dealing with such an obscure issue as death, never sounds fatalistic. Tiersen has succeeded at exploring new grounds by composing reflective and poignant music. Fans of his previous work might be surprised, but they surely won't be disappointed.

Anybody that has ever had writer's block will appreciate a method called "brain dumping" that allows you to write as fast as possible, without thinking. Just keep writing anything that comes to mind. Essentially, you just have to write as fast as possible, breaking through that inner wall that keeps you from transcribing what you need to. You don't really have to care about the spellings, grammar or even if the content you're creating is making sense. The article's topic, once you begin writing, will unfold by itself. Your only purpose is to write down everything that comes to mind, and you will probably be shocked by how much content you actually get. Proofread everything that you write down, and restructure it so it looks presentable.
