His songs requires a considerable selection of instruments; mostly the guitar, synthesizer or violin jointly with instruments such as the melodica, piano, toy marimba, harpsichord, accordion and typewriter.

Tiersen is frequently mistaken to get a writer of soundtracks, himself stating I am perhaps not a composer and that I actually don’t possess a classical history, but his actual focus is on touring and studio albums which simply happen to regularly be advisable for picture.
