Dust Lane is the sixth studio album by Yann Tiersen. Tiersen himself describes the record as "not a sad thing, but a colourful thing - an experience sometimes painful, but also joyful." The album was two years in the making and was largely recorded at Everything's Calm Studio I in Ushant with further parts recorded at Studio II in Paris and in the Philippines. It was mixed at The Chairworks in Morrison Street, Castleford, near Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, mastered at AIR Studios in London. Dust Lane, which took its title partly from the image of the dirt road going into Gaza, is permeated with the theme of mortality. During the recording sessions Tiersen lost his mother and a close friend. The recordings started out as simple song based tracks with Tiersen playing acoustic guitar, mandolin and bouzouki. New layers were added to the recordings creating a more complex sound. Then an array of vintage synthesisers and electric guitars were added to create further textures. The album was released through Mute Records in Europe and ANTI- Records in North America on 11 October 2010 in CD and LP formats. The record was promoted by a tour that started from New York City in October 2010.

Amélie is the soundtrack to the 2001 French film Amélie. Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet chanced upon the accordion- and piano-driven music of Yann Tiersen while driving with his production assistant who put on a CD he had not heard before. Greatly impressed, he immediately bought Tiersen's entire catalogue and eventually commissioned him to compose pieces for the film. The soundtrack features both compositions from Tiersen's first three albums, as well as new items, variants of which can be found on his fourth album, L'Absente, which he was writing at the same time.

L'Absente is the fourth studio album by French composer and musician Yann Tiersen. When French film director Jean-Pierre Jeunet asked Tiersen if he was interested in writing the film score for Amélie, Tiersen was already working on L'Absente. The album was released on 5 June 2001 through EMI France, and was preceded by two promotional singles for "À quai" and "Bagatelle". L'Absente is an album of great variety with Tiersen playing many instruments including an old-fashioned typewriter and a pot, and it is characterized by several guests contributions provided by the 35-member Ensemble Orchestral Synaxis conducted by Guillaume Bourgogne, French folk rock group Têtes Raides, singers Dominique A, Lisa Germano, Neil Hannon, and Belgian actress Natacha Régnier, ondes Martenot player Christine Ott, Christian Quermalet, guitarist Marc Sens, viola player Bertrand Lambert, violinists Yann Bisquay and Sophie Naboulay, saxophonist Grégoire Simon, and drummer Sacha Toorop. L'Absente peaked at number 41 on the French Albums Chart.

Le Phare (English: The Lighthouse) is the third studio album by French composer Yann Tiersen. This was the artist's breakthrough album. He collaborated with distinguished French songwriter Dominique A (who wrote and provided vocals to both "Monochrome" and "Les Bras de mer"). It is typical of Tiersen's work for violin, mandolin, accordion and piano to feature heavily. Also a trademark feature of his style is unusual instrumentation, including a bicycle wheel, typewriters and saucepans. Three songs from this album, "La Dispute", "La Noyée", and "Sur le fil" were used later for Tiersen's soundtrack for the film Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain. "L'Homme aux bras ballants" is also the soundtrack to a short film by the same name by Laurent Gorgiard. "Sur le fil" has become a live favourite, normally only the violin section performed with great intensity, sometimes even breaking many hairs on the bow.

Rue des cascades (English: Cascade Street) is the second studio album by the musician and composer Yann Tiersen. It was released through Sine Terra Firma in 1996, and subsequently reissued in 1998, 2001, and 2009 through Ici, d'ailleurs... and Virgin Records in CD and double LP formats. The album, with the exclusion of two pieces, "Naomi" and "La Vie quotidienne", is a collection of short pieces recorded with toy piano, harpsichord, violin, accordion, mandolin, and other conventional and unconventional musical instruments such as an old typewriter in "Pas si simple". The title track, which was used about one year later for the film score of the Palme d'Or nominated French drama film The Dreamlife of Angels, was sung by French soloist singer Claire Pichet, who also provided vocals on the track "Naomi", a song that features words from Allen Ginsberg's poem "Kaddish". François-Xavier Schweyer played the cello on "C'était ici" and "La Fenêtre". Three tracks, "J'y suis jamais allé", "Pas si simple", and "Soir de fête", will find a wider audience five years later when they were featured on the soundtrack to Jean-Pierre Jeunet's acclaimed film Amélie.

La Valse des monstres (The Monsters’ Waltz) is the first album released by Yann Tiersen. It includes several pieces he wrote for short films and the accompaniment for plays in addition to original pieces. The first eleven tracks were written for the theatrical adaptations of Freaks, a 1932 American Pre-Code horror film directed by Tod Browning, and the last six pieces for the theatrical representation of the classic Japanese musical drama The Damask Drum rewritten by Japanese author, poet and playwright, Yukio Mishima in 1955. Only 1,000 copies were pressed when it was released in June 1995 by Sine Terra Firma, and then it was reissued by Ici d'ailleurs in 1998 in CD and LP formats. Two tracks, "La Valse des monstres" and "Le Banquet", found a wider audience six years later when they were featured on the soundtrack to Jean-Pierre Jeunet's acclaimed film Amélie.
