Movie Score Composer
at 22 that Loic composed his first movie
soundtrack for a French film called "A woman's Life".
"A friend of mine had just finished his
first film and asked me to compose the music for it. I wasn't sure I
could do it. Until then, I had only written 'songs', in which you use words to express feelings or tell a story.
express emotions and feelings through music only was a new challenge for
I can't describe
the pleasure I took composing that soundtrack. It was a real revelation
for me. From there on, I decided to stop writing songs and I would only compose music, real music."
Since this first soundtrack, Loic has scored numerous feature films, documentaries,
TV Series and even Video Games.
Among his most famous soundtracks, we find "The 4th
Musketeer", "House of Cards",
"Rise of the Eco-Warrior" and
"One June Afternoon."
||In 2003, 3 of the films he composed were selected
for the Festival of Cannes and the same year, Loic receives the
ASIN Award for "Best Composer"
(Australian Screen Industry Network)
Today, while working mostly for European productions, Loic keeps
scoring Australian films and since 2013, he is also a lecturer at
JMC Academy and QUT Brisbane
where he teaches Screen Music Composing.
Loic is what we call a "synesthete".
Synesthesia (or synesthezia) is a neurological condition in which two or
more bodily senses are coupled in the brain instead of
For example, some people perceive letters or/and numbers with
colours. True neurological synesthesia is involuntary,
and concerns about 4% of the population.
In Loic's case, his synesthesia
associates sounds and pictures
which means that when he's looking at something, for each colour,
for each shape or/and for each
motion type, he hears a different sound. It may be just the sound of an
instrument, a tune or a rhythm. And the more
complex or detailed the picture is , the more
sounds he hears.
" I discovered my synesthesia very late
actually. Of course, I have always had that condition, but until a few years
ago, I had always thought that it was normal and that everybody had
it. I remember when I was teaching music in France, the weird gaze of my
students when I was trying to explain that such chord was purple or turquoise or
that such melody was built like a triangle. Now, I understand how crazy they
might have thought I was. It's only 2 or 3 years ago that I discovered that, in fact,
it was a very specific condition that touched
only few people."
