Show Info

You don't need to be a numerologist to know about the age old mystical associations the figure '8' holds. A symmetrical shape that crosses over itself and forks out into an eternal geometric continuum, it is believed by some to be the number that balances the material and the immaterial worlds. It is the perpetuity that interests celebrated Breton musician YANN TIERSEN. "Infinity is my eighth studio album," says Yann from his Ushant Island home situated thirty kilometres off the west coast of Brittant, "and an '8' is also the sign of infinity. I didn't choose the title, the title chose itself." Chez Yann, situated on a weather-beaten island in the Celtic Sea which is rich in stone and mineral and barren of tree and vegetation, played a major part in the process of creating "Infinity', as did the arcadian wilds of the Faroe Islands and Iceland (where the humble beginnings of this collection of new musical works was first conceived). With the initial recordings taking place in Reykjavik, Tiersen then took this work back to Ushant to finish it off, but not before visiting the bucolic and a bicycle for pleasure.
