(Photo by Richard Drumas) Out September 15, 2023 via mute is Yann Tiersen’s “Kerber Complete” boxset with newly recorded solo piano version of his 2021 album “Kerber”. In total the box set collates four very different versions of “Kerber”.
You’ll get Yann Tiersen’s 2021 album built on modular synthesis and sampling, “11 5 18 2 5 18”, the modular recomposition of Kerber, a brand new solo piano recording of Kerber and an album of remixes and reworkings from the likes of Terence Fixmer, Beatrice Dillon and Laurel Halo, as well as remixes by Tiersen of NEU!, Keeley Forsyth, Michael Price and Simon Fisher Turner & Edmund de Waal.
The news comes alongside the first details of a Summer tour that Tiersen is embarking on with Quinquis, aka Emilie Tiersen who recently released “SEIM”, an electronic album. The two artists will depart from their home on the Ushant, an island off the Breton coast, to set sail for a tour of Celtic lands and the Faroe Islands.
And you can take that ‘set sail’ literally as the duo will be traveling on their sailboat, Ninnog, named after a medieval mother superior who traveled from Wales to Brittany, becoming a protector of women and a champion of sustainability and forestry, to a series of performances in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England and the Faroe Islands.
Here’s the Ninnog summer tour short film.
Also available now is Yann Tiersen’s “Live in Passengers”, an ARTE Concert recorded live at Berlin’s former Tempelhof airport, now a public park.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
