Yann Tiersen & Jay Haze – Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi (2008)


Yann Tiersen & Jay Haze – Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi (2008)

Call me crazy, but I find it hard to imagine a bruiser like Jay Haze being enchanted by Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain, a cute and quirky love story known to many as Amelie. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he saw it on a date with some totally hot piece of ass, which he dug into well before the credits rolled. In any case, he liked the musical score enough to slip a beat under one of the tracks and have Tuning Spork release it on a turquoise one-sided 12-inch. And, as unlikely as it may sound, Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi is a charmingly different track that really sticks with you, and succeeds in being both moving and bumpin’.

A contemporary composer with rare pop appeal, Yann Tiersen’s bittersweet melodies have adorned a number of critically acclaimed albums as well as soundtracks. Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi, exemplifies his style well, focusing on a melody that is as compelling as it is mournful. Jay Haze gives Tiersen’s composition plenty of breathing room, focusing on the drums and letting the piano do its thing. The beat is classic Haze—thick and funky with impressive attention to detail. The contrast between Haze’s oomph and Tiersen’s melancholy is strangely symbiotic, and the track is ultimately no less upbeat than Haze’s typical fare. Granted, this heavy-hearted track may be too sappy for some, but it is a refreshing change of pace for Haze as well as Tuning Spork, and will undoubtedly spark beautifully somber moments of clarity on the dance floor.

Guillaume Yann Tiersen (born 23 June 1970) is a French musician and composer known internationally for composing the score to the Jean-Pierre Jeunet movie Amélie.

His music is recognized by its use of a large variety of instruments in relatively minimalist compositions, often with a touch of either European classical music or french folk music, using primarily the piano, accordion or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, ondes martenot, harpsichord and typewriter.
