Yann Tiersen 

The French composer brings his Dust Lane fantasy world music to Republic

French composer Yann Tiersen's delicate, personal scores for Amelie (2001) and Good Bye, Lenin! (2003) imbued as much personality into those charming fantasies as did the starring turns by then-unknown leads Audrey Tautou and Daniel Brühl. Like Tatou, whose mischievous adventures in Montmarte moved in graceful waltz time to a mysterious cobblestone symphony of strings, accordions, xylophones and keys, Amelie shined new light on Tiersen outside of France, where his avant-garde pop compositions had long borne the mark of an auteur. His sixth LP, October release Dust Lane (Anti-) conjures a fantasy world entirely of Tiersen's making, an uneasy autumn colored by loss (both his mother and best friend died during the recording) and anxiety (a mise-en-scene of tense guitars and electronic waves replaces the plucky bounce of previous works). Sean Carey, of wintry Wisconsin folkies Bon Iver, opens. Tickets $20 advance purchase, $23 at the door. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
