"Each of the ten pieces was created in and named after a specific location on the island [of Ushant]. When the tracks were released as sheet music, each piano piece was accompanied by a coordinate for its location on Ushant, a field recording from the exact spot referred to in the piece of music, and an image of the area. For this recording of EUSA, Tiersen electronically manipualted his original field recordings of the natural sounds on the island to create a subtle drone... Tracks are divided by improvisations--all entitled 'Hent', which translates into English as 'path'--leading the listener across the island from one location to another."
