Other

Here are 3 albums gathering the tailor-made pieces I was asked to compose for different projects.
They’re all independant and each track can also be enjoyed as is. Some are even used in other projects – see “Derivative Work” (bottom of the page).

If you’re looking for my other albums (“Chroniques de l’Autre Monde” – the soundtrack of my novel), go here!

Why only 3 albums?
Because some projects were never completed, others were based on music from “Chroniques de l’Autre Monde”, and among the projects we actually completed that feature tailor-made compositions, I only deem those from the following 3 albums interesting.

This was the first time I composed something tailor-made, in autumn 2009, following a request from Etienne Hallaux who needed to illustrate his slide-show on the Orion constellation.
The project turned out to be a real challenge: first because Etienne had a very clear idea of what he wanted and communicating it via e-mail (he from Belgium and me from Sweden) wasn’t an easy task, and second because it was a slide-show, meaning every image had to be perfectly synchronized with the music.
So this piece demanded a lot of work, some of it rather boring (changing a whole part because the atmosphere didn’t fit, having to add or take away small bits to match the images…). But all in all it was a very interesting experience with a very interesting man, who unfortunately passed away in September 2012, just after we uploaded his work online.
In the end we were both satisfied with the result, even though it became more mysterious/poetic and less romantic than what he initially had in mind.

It was the first time I composed for movies, during winter & spring 2010, following a request from Yoann Peter who wanted me to illustrate his 3 short movies.
This project was very interesting from an artistic point of view. First because Yoann only had a general idea of what he wanted so we discussed a lot (via e-mail only, which certainly didn’t help), found ideas together and he gave me enough room to experiment. Second because he was aiming at something very new for me: no orchestral symphonies here, instead he wanted experimental music, dark and electronic (basically fitting the atmosphere of the films).
In the end, even if those pieces may not be the most interesting ones to listen to as they are, composing for movies and in a new genre was a true test of my abilities!

The Legend of Mendrock

Music composed in 2010 as the main theme of the audio saga “The Legend of Mendrock”.
Unfortunately it was never used as far as I know, and the saga itself (which already had 3-4 episodes) is not longer available either.
The instructions were to make a dark but epic song, that would give an overview of what the audience should expect; something closer in terms of instruments and structure to what I had done before (compared with the other two albums), but with a slightly different atmosphere.
The story behind this piece is an interesting one: the creator had used my song “Liberté” (album “Chroniques de l’Autre Monde II”) in an episode his saga and when I found out I dropped a line in his visitors book to thank him. He then answered me and we started to work together!
Initially I was planning on composing the entire soundtrack but in the end I’ll have made the main theme only! We lost contact and after 4 years I decided he would never use my work so I may as well make it available online.
The idea of composing an entire soundtrack was tempting at the time, and since it was a fantasy-style audio saga I didn’t have as many constraints as for movies and the universe was pretty close to what I was doing with “Chroniques de l’Autre Monde”.
However with the perspective gained through the years I realize now that would have demanded just too much time…
