  1. Mathieu's scores for short films

    Thank you very much for your kind words BloodBoal! Yes I'm credited as an orchestrator on La Belle et la Bête, but to be honest, I just transcribed midi to sheets, the only orchestrator on Pierre Adenot's music is Pierre Adenot :-) Of course, I'll tell the forum if I'm on a feature film!
  2. Hello, I wanted to share with you a playlist of my recent and not so recent scores for short films. For the larger ones I've had the great honor to conduct the Philharmonia Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road and Air Studios and for the chamber music ones I recorded the music in Paris. Hope you'll enjoy it!
  3. The Composer's Thread

    Hello, here's a score very influenced by Williams that I've composed some years ago :-) Hope you'll enjoy it.
  4. Which was your first Williams Album?

    Far and Away, I was 15.
  5. From France

    Thanks for your welcomes. Stefan, I promise I'll try not to :-)
  6. As many of french children, I began to read with the adventures of Tintin.
  7. From France

    Hi everybody, I'm a composer and orchestrator, huge fan of John Williams for 20 years. In fact, he's one of the reasons I choose to become a composer and I've had the great pleasure this year to orchestrate and conduct Christophe Heral's music for "The adventures of Tintin : the game" edited by Ubisoft. It was a big honor for me to work on this project knowing that Mr. Williams was composing the music of the movie at the same time. I'm really happy to join the JWFan community !
