November 10, 2016 | By Francerocks

Following the release of EUSA, a brand new album of piano compositions recorded live at Abbey Road, Yann Tiersen is launching a competition to find the best and most interesting interpretations of tracks from the album. There are three categories for entry: Best Overall Performance, Most Interesting Location and Best Non-Piano Performance. Fans are asked to upload their interpretations tohttp://myeusa.com and three winners, chosen by Yann Tiersen, will win a signed toy piano (the same kind that Tiersen performs with on the current tour), plus signed EUSA goodies. The competition closes on January 13, 2017, and winners will be announced on January 23. Further information available fromhttp://myeusa.com.

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 Street1998’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) has 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.
