Yann Tiersen is a multi-instrumentalist who rose to fame when songs from three of his albums were used to score Amelie, and most of his music seems as though it was written with films in mind.

Following the release of EUSA, a brand new album of piano compositions recorded live at Abbey Road, Yann Tiersen is launching a competition to find the best and most interesting interpretations of tracks from the album.
There are three categories for entry: Best Overall Performance, Most Interesting Location and Best Non-Piano Performance. Fans are asked to upload their interpretations tohttp://myeusa.com and three winners, chosen by Yann Tiersen, will win a signed toy piano (the same kind that Tiersen performs with on the current tour), plus signed EUSA goodies. The competition closes on January 13, 2017, and winners will be announced on January 23. Further information available fromhttp://myeusa.com.
