Boomkat Product Review:
Best known for his soundtrack work (including "Amélie" and "Good Bye Lenin!"), composer and multi-instrumentalist Yann Tiersen re-imagines 2021's "Kerber" using samples and subtle electronics, transforming it into entirely new material.
Tiersen's initial ideas for "11 5 18 2 5 1811 5 18 2 5 18" came as he was preparing for a live performance at last year's Berlin-based modular synth festival Superbooth. Blessed with some extra time to write a live set, he programmed and composed material that mirrored his processes on "Kerber" but took the sounds into completely new places.
Most of the tracks revolve around carefully programmed synth arpeggios that hover around the trance spectrum, careering into electro pop and Jean-Michel Jarre-influenced epic electronics at times, or later in the album dipping into the piano-led material that Tiersen is best known for.
