Infinity, how can you fathom it or even understand it? In any case, Yann Tiersen has a good chance of being one of the front ranks of musicians who somehow succeed. Tiersen, who has always been good for opulent still or sound lives - just think of the soundtrack to "Die fabelhafte Welt der Amélie" or of his last albums "Dust Lane" and "Skyline", also scores, but for films that haven't been staged yet - starts with "Infinity" his not so hopeless attempt to capture infinity in music. Once again, all the styles and musical currents that have always fascinated the musician collide here: Classic, Art- and Postrock as well as Ambient. You can hear the album clearly again and again that it was conceived and brought into shape on Iceland. With Sigur Róschem's melodious sound, large-scale grandeur and towering sound cathedrals, as well as Nordic text passages, the French composer and multi-instrumentalist seeks infinity high up on the globe, high in the north, on the border with Walhalla.
