    About Yann Tiersen's T-Shirt

    Yann is very interested in the marks and scars that humans leave behind on the landscape. Buildings and monuments that we build and revere so quickly turn in to detritus and dust. Nothing is permanent, and everything is very fragile - but we assign so much meaning to them in the beginning. The image represents the human monuments but it's unclear whether they are beautiful new structures or crumbling wrecks.

    That’s right…YBP just got seriously deep. So join us in scratching the surface, wearing a sick artistic representation of the evolution/ devolution of our physical and social landscape, and help support Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) a charity that works to deliver aid directly to people affected by armed conflict and other man-made or natural disasters.

    About The Band

    Yann is known the world over for his unique song writing and sound which lends itself so readily to film. In the past his music has been used for the award winning soundtracks of films such as 'Amelie' and 'Goodbye Lenin', but that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his body of work. Fascinated with sound and musical structure the song writing is constantly developing and evolving - “Let’s live in an enormous world of sound we can use randomly, with no rules at all,” says Tiersen, of his vision. “Let’s play with sound, forget all knowledge and instrumental skills, and just use instinct – the same way punk did.” His latest album Skyline is a new step forward. The swirling synths, violins and crashing guitars soar together around his trademark vocal musings; repeating lyrics which turn over in the listeners mind.

    About The Cause

    Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural or man-made disasters. They operate independently of any political, military, or religious agendas. The main reason Yann chose to support MSF, is for their work as one of the three charities currently helping refugees in Libya.
