I started music when I was 7 years old, my parents pushed me into playing violin, which I learned for 6 years.. But nowadays, I can’t sound anywhere good except for horror dissonant music haha!
After 6 years, I stopped playing the violin mainly because it was too “formal” and that’s not what I was looking for. I wanted to play film scores and my teacher wasn’t so much into that.
That’s when I started the piano leading to my first compositions. My first ideas started there. It was amazing to be able to finally create but I needed something with more grit and dirtiness (ohhh yeah!). You guessed it! ROCK N ROLL BABY! I was so into it, started my first AC/DC and Metallica guitars lessons. Then a few bands: Rock, Metal, Punk/Rock, Metalcore, Hardcore. I had great time playing in front of people but managing people and their different characters wasn’t for me. Classical guitar had the same issue for me that the violin had, too “formal”. I felt like my creativity was behind bars.
Then I discovered the world of DAWs: Cubase/ Pro Tools and redirected my career to be a mixing engineer. That sounded great, I wanted to do that but somehow I missed music a lot…
I would have never imagined that one day I would be able to do music as my full time job.
Well… I was wrong!
At the end of my Bachelor Degree, I searched for a Film Scoring Master Degree. I found one in Lyon, France where I did 2 years there and 1 year in Montreal, Canada.
IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!
At that moment, I started to realize I was so much into film music! I found sometimes I really loved! And that’s when trailer music came in.
After this year in Canada, I came back to France and met my new business partner Salva over SoundCloud, which whom I would start Hybrid Chronicles later. Our first trailer track was for “ Skybound ” a music catalog that wanted to expand to trailer music.
For 3 years we worked for different trailer music publishers Really Slow Motion, Dos Brains, Colossal Trailer Music, Skybound, Brand X Music, Theta Sound, Glory Oath + Blood, End Of Silence, Imagine Music, C21FX, Cezame, Wrong Planet and finally CHROMA!
1 year ago CHROMA asked us to be their exclusive composers. And that one of them should move to LA to be in-house. I had no children and wife in France so it was easier for me to take that jump! (Lucky me I guess?)
Since I arrived I’ve been doing solo albums, trailer music, ads and orchestral arrangements for other people!
Can’t be better here, and LA is fantastic! (They have bubble tea and tacos!!!)
