Editorial Belgium is internationally known for its beers, chocolate and brothers film directors. But there’s of course a lot more to discover in Belgium. Film score composers are definitely not the least important. You’ll then understand that it is such a great pride for me to introduce you to the first issue of the Belgian Screen Composers Guild directory.

With more than 50 members four months after its creation, the Belgian Screen Composers Guild is the proof of the richness and the dynamism of this corporation. You’ll find in Belgium composers for any style of music, any kind of production, and nearly any kind of budget. Thanks to the Federal Tax Shelter and the regional funds, Wallimage, Screen Flanders and Screen Brussels, international producers can find very attractive incentive to shoot or post-produce their films in Belgium.

But the most important is that you’ll find in Belgium wonderful orchestras, unbelievable recording studios, brilliant musicians, great orchestrators, reliable musical executive producers, advised music supervisors, and a tremendous choice of talented music composers, as this 2017 directory will show you.

Line Adam Line Adam was born in 1972 in Namur, Belgium. At 16 years old, she has acquired the highest diplomas in the music conservatories in Brussels and Liège but she is longing for harmony and composing, particularly for orchestras. Alongside her career of flutist and pianist she studies orchestral conducting and becomes arranger and composer. She is attracted by film music that gives a big part to orchestral music and allows the composer to move out of “conventional” music and explore new styles. To date, Line Adam has composed for nearly 100 films and documentaries in Belgium, France, Switzerland, United Kingdom etc. More than 1500 works exist from single instruments to full symphonic orchestras. She also composes for several French and Belgian groups: Quartz,Trio Krokus, Saxacorda, Trio Sempre etc...

info@lineadam.com Fond des Vaux 10A 4190 Xhoris Belgium +32 498 078 671

She has produced numerous music albums, including: “Northern Flute”, “Sculptures”, “België- Belgium”, “Spices” etc. and recently a successful series of piano solo albums “Winter Facts”, “Northern Piano” etc. Her work also includes over 40 pieces for theatre and musicals. Her opera “Sybil et les silhouettes” with which she was finalist of the European contest “Opéraj” was performed by the Royal Opera of Wallonia in March 2012 and in 2015 her second opera “Fleur de peau” was also created by the Royal Opera of Wallonia. Director Michel Gourdin says of her: ( ...) she has this gift of the greatest composers: the ability to support emotion without dominating it. Her music breathes with your film and follows its rhythm. It is the final “varnish” to the finished product, allowing to fine tune emotion.

Luc Baiwir

‘No man is a prophet in his own country’. But we will have to revise this statement. Indeed, Luc Baiwir is not just an artist. He is the Mega Performer in Belgium, no less. He conjures up imposing new age-music from his synthesizers and surrounds it with a show of crazy light effects, swinging fountains and everything he deems necessary to attract the public in his fantasyland. He gave a lot of concerts in Paris, Brussels, London, Shanghai, Rabat, Antibes, Liege... He composed for television and movies. Luc Baiwir show us his vision on water, sea, animals or nature, subjects he certainly knows after having provided music for tens of documentaries.. With his band, he knows how to

present this theme like no one else. A true extravaganza of light and music you will reflect on for a long time. But Luc Baiwir is born in the classical world. First at all, he learned piano in the Liege Conservatory. Than he began to compose classical music. Early, he gives some piano recital with his own music. Today, Luc Baiwir is one of the Belgian composer the most required to produce scores and original works for soloist, strings and symphony orchestras. (USA Today - Concert at Fayetteville - North Carolina) « Transiting between classic and modern, BAIWIR shows itself as a full composer today. Approaching uninhibitedly all these music styles, his wide palette of creation show considerable qualities of a composer in full maturity, a musician of our time and an artist that cannot be ignored at the beginning of the 21th century» (A.Riedes, Nice Matin, 2000)

Grażyna Bienkowski is a pianist, composer, cellist and musicologist born in Belgium and of Polish origin. It’s at the end of her Conservatoire’s studies that she starts thinking about making film music, wishing to unite narration and sounds in a very personal way. Her references in this area are ranging from John Barry to Ryuichi Sakamoto. In 2005, she began to compose instrumental music (piano+cello duets) in a neo-classical style. Her first pieces for piano solo will be for contemporary dance and performed live on choreographies by former students from P.A.R.T.S. Having worked for the BOZAR, La Monnaie Opera, and in the literature, Grażyna also sets foot in the rock scene which solicits her several times for studio sessions or other projects since 2008-2009 (OSA, Bertier, MaryM, Teuk Henri, Daan…). She also uses the harmony and composition codes of jazz music to broaden and enrich her sounds palette. In 2010 she released her first piano solo EP album, Antichambre. A self-

Grażyna Bienkowski produced opus with minimalist and intimate vein in the spirit of the universes of Craig Armstrong and Michael Nyman. Since 2009, several of her titles have been the subject of video clips and are the first steps to a practice she wants more cinematic. In 2014 she founded her own trio with trumpet and drums described as "jazz and not jazz". The same year, she creates the band Wolves with the pop-rock singer Véronique Jacquemein. The world of cinema being never far, she will play two consecutive years for The Greek Short Film Festival in Brussels with this songwriting band.

Then, she creates the piano-drums duo Kolwiek People with the young French drummer Pierre Hurty in the fall of 2016 and also prepares a duet with the French guitarist Yan Pechin (Alain Bashung, Brigitte Fontaine, Rachid Taha, ...) that she wants to be recorded between Brussels and Paris.

In 2015, her collaboration with the photographer and videographer Lara Herbinia resulted in the production of the video clip Opening A. A tribute to the film Un homme, une femme by Claude Lelouch with a soundtrack composed with her trio and dance seen as the main protagonist. After meeting the composer Patricia Hontoir, a collaboration in pairs was born to compose with four hands between Belgium and the United States, mainly around film music.

Grażyna is a junior and very promising composer from the Guild.

Through her presence in the Belgian Screen Composers Guild, Grażyna wants to multiply bridges between musicians sharing the same passion for screen music and find additional echoes for the music she is already offering.

Grégory Caron I never knew exactly what to do. Untill one day, I stepped into a composers studio (Look & Listen). I was fascinated. From that day I started making music & sounddesign non-stop. By now I have almost 10 years of experience in the field of composing for all kinds of movies, animation, commercials,… I just love to focus on the interaction between moving image and music and sound or sometimes divine silence... It’s my job, my passion and I love it!

Pepijn Caudron

Pepijn Caudron was raised in Belgium by a musical family. His mother played violin and his father played guitar. When he was twelve he followed their lead and began singing and drumming in several local bands, some touring the Belgian club circuit extensively a few years later. By fifteen he started experimenting with 4-track recorders and sampling. He found that music offered more possibilities than the traditional rock band set-up. Initially, his solo work was heavily influenced by the sample-ideology of hip-hop and the sound of labels like Mo’ Wax and Ninja Tune in the late 90’s. A growing interest in 20th century classical music gradually infused his work with a more theatrical feel. Kreng’s peculiar world of sound also drew attention from the Norwegian record label Miasmah which approached him to release music from his soundtracks for theatre. This resulted in the critically acclaimed album L’Autopsie Phénoménale de Dieu (2009), followed by Grimoire (2011), which earned him a reputation as one

of the leading figures in the world of modern-classicalelectronic composition. In 2012, the lavishly designed retrospective compilation box Works For Abattoir Fermé 2007-2011 was released. This collector’s item sold out in less than three weeks. After more than a decade of stage related work, Caudron felt the need to change his creative environment. He returned to his lifelong passion for film soundtracks influenced by a wide range of composers from the inevitable Bernard Herrmann to Ennio Morricone’s 70’s giallo period stretching out to more contemporary masters like Trent Reznor, Brian Reitzell and Joseph Bishara. Along with an already successful recording and theatre composing career he has decided to dedicate a major part of his time to creating music for film. Since joining Spectrevision Music Management in 2013, Caudron has scored Cooties, his first full feature soundtrack which was released on September 18, 2015, by Milan Records (digital/CD). Death Waltz Recording Company/Mondo soon followed with a vinyl release. His second score, for the feature film Camino, premiered in September 2016 at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.

Jan De Block

PAST

FILM:

The first breakthrough of Jan De Block was a TV tune for a sunday night prime time TV show, together with Jo Casters (Poesie Noire, Erotic Dissidents). It was the start of an intense cooperation. A few years later, Jan started his own rollercoaster journey of TV tunes and music for commercial movies. Since 10 years, Jan’s focus shifted to songwriting. Odette Di Maio (Italy) became his writing partner, which resulted in “Infection”, the first full album of Miss O in 2012. Jan also works with Kyoko Baertsoen (ex-Hooverphonic), as co-writer/producer of her first full solo-album KYOKO

NOW

Dedicated to fragile filmic piano compositions, Silent Noise Revolution is Jan’s most recent project. Silent Noise Revolution was selected by Nils Frahm to feature in his "piano day 2016" playlist.

Jan is specifically looking for film projects that match with his fragile piano music. His signature is a balanced mix of fragile and romantic piano with abstract sounds and noise.

Vincent D'Hondt

Alongside a career in theatre I started writing music for shorts, and I scored my first feature film in 1998. I was involved in about 15 projects, sometimes early on in the production process, sometimes as a last minute emergency composer. I like writing for the human voice, solo instruments, smaller ensembles as well as symphony orchestra. What I adore most is combining these with digital soundscape design. I take charge of the complete process (writing, organizing, recording, mixing, declaration) until delivery of the master.

Tuur Florizoone

Although in the Low Countries the accordion is often still associated with corniness and banal hi-jinx, in other cultures it has been a fully respected instrument with a great expressive range for many years. Especially in the hands of a composer and improviser with imagination and taste, such as one of Belgium’s most beloved musicians, Tuur Florizoone. This has everything to do with his broad knowledge and interests, his charisma and tangible joy in performing and composing, and his gift for touching the heart of the music as well as that of the listeners. Florizoone (1978) has had classical piano lessons and studied jazz piano and composition at the conservatory. He gained some of his practical experience in Brazil, such as at the workshops of the great percussionist Nana Vasconcelos, and by accompanying circus, dance and theatre shows. He collaborated with heavyweights from the worlds of jazz (Philip Catherine, Garrett List), pop music (Stijn Meuris, Thé Lau), classical music (Claron McFadden, the Brussels Philharmonic, Metropol Orkest) and the folk and world music scene (Luka Bloom, Carlos Nuñes). As an improviser, he’s at his best in open situations with a lot of freedom and interaction, like in the group Tricycle, the collective trio Massot/Florizoone/ Horbaczewski, and in a duo with diatonic accordionist Didier Laloy. He demonstrated his control of mastery of mood and atmosphere, based on simple, directly appealing material, in film soundtracks such as Les Amours des Moules and Aanrijding in Moscou. The soundtrack’s international success leads to believe that Tuur is well on his way to becoming Belgians own Yann Tiersen.

Simon Goffin My musical style goes from symphonicepic to more intimate piano but I adapt to many other styles depending on the projects. With many short films to my credit, I have a good experience of working in precise sync with the image. I am also interested in video games. Being a player myself for many years, I like the freedom and diversity offered by this medium. Accustomed to remote working, I appreciate teamwork and constructive exchanges. I adapt easily to people and projects. Whenever possible, I like to work upstream, through discussions on projects under development.

Joris Hermy Even before Joris Hermy entered this world he was already tapping his fingers and feet to the sound of Doris Day who gave birth to his musical talent. That is how his film music was born simultaneously with him on July 5th 1979 in Bruges (Belgium). Altogether it didn't take Joris Hermy very long to switch from the innocent to the more profane and even infernal. He sold his soul to Darth Vader! While listening to 'Star Wars: A New Hope' he knew that these were the compositions that had been echoing in his body and soul all that time. John Williams appeared to be the translator of his own internal symphony. The unknown 'Force' of John Williams awakened something completely addictive thanks to the Maestro's heroic

brass, loud timpani strokes, lush strings, massive choirs and immortal melodies. That was the moment when he sold his favorite Star Wars collectors items to buy a new professional keyboard. Since then no genre is dissonant in his hungry surge for inspiration. With the notes, chords and timbre that trigger something inside him, Joris Hermy composes his own typical harmonic stories. But besides that, also the largest range of films thrives him as a composer towards the making of his own unique musical personality. To Joris Hermy music and images are ultimately and eternally intertwined. Ever since his very first encounter with the powers of the symphonic sound, he pursued workshops around the world to learn from the best in the field. Gentlemen like Mr. Conrad Pope , Mr. Patrick Doyle and contemporary composer Mr. Wim Hendrickx sharpened his knowledge about the orchestra and how to compose music on picture. All of these encounters encouraged him to go further, expect more and to work his way up in the Film Music Industry.

As a professional composer for film, Patricia has created music for feature films and documentary in Europe (Taste of Blueberries - Le Testament amoureux de Nel - Greenginger muppets documentary) and the US (The Violent states of America). She continues to work on new projects for screen in Belgium, Zurich and USA. Her musical approach and collaboration on a movie project is to be open, to observe, to search, to involve, to take time and to take distance, to be quick when it needs to be and to be flexible... "Music can touch, but also at times allows a place for…a moment… an image…a thought… a movement…a story… silence… it's always a challenge, and I love challenges… »

lyricism and poetry that music can convey. Since the beginning of his career, Hughes has always viewed the job as a dialogue between the musician and the director (as well as the movie editor and sound ingeneer and designer) working together to serve the film. Music only has meaning if it brings an additional dimension to the visual one. Hughes Maréchal has also developed a proven voice coaching method for actors who need to use their voices for singing or simply strengthening vocal capacity.

Rodrigue Nardonne The music I produce is a mix of contemporary music by the technique and classical music in the way of writing. I always try to make pictures and strong feelings pop in mind and attempt to fit the atmosphere of what is happening in the movie. However, I’m often inclined to compose music that tells a melancholic story. And my influences are varied, from Ludivico Einaudi to Max Richter and include Matt Elliott and Mogwai. Rodrigue is a junior and very promising composer from the guild.

Paul Pasquier I am passionate about music and especially about film music. I graduated from the Alfred Cortot School (music composition class) in Paris and from the Royal Music Conservatory of Brussels as a musician as well as from the IAD Institut (Institut des Arts de Diffusion) in Louvain la Neuve as a sound engineer. I play the piano and percussions. I also have a passion for sound recording techniques. I have had the opportunity to compose sound tracks for the following documentary films: The Scottish Key, Le monde de glace and Victor Boin, among others.

I work altogether on manuscript paper and with Protools programs. Mastering both music playing and studio work, both “languages” of music writing and sound recording which perfectly complete one another, gives me the power and ability to enter into dialogue with musicians as easily as with music technicians and producers Finally, I followed a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) training and a Non Violent Communication training course. Both experiences gave me the skill of useful human values to work with studio musicians as well as an open mind to interact with producers and film directors.

«When I produce soundtracks I prominently tend to mix in my own artistic flavour and a high density of emotions. Throughout my compositions I carefuly think what I want to convey to the audience. Good music is conceptual work with the integration of a fine subset of psychology, so not entirely subjective as one might believe. Music is the key to acceptance and change in behavioural patterns, which is why I am inclined to create emotional soundtracks with a tendency to evoke strong feelings». +32 475 432 118 thierry.plas@skynet.be thierry.plas@generalscore.com

David Reyes

Since my childhood, I’ve been passionate about music and cinema. Writing film music was obvious to me and I began at the age of 15 to write my first scores at school. Now, I already have scored movies for cinema (“The Fox and the Child”, “Behind the Walls”, “Before Snowfall” among others) and television (“Facteur Chance”), many documentaries and short movies, and I still have the same passion and a lot of music to write, because I like to discover new worlds and new peoples, and to merge different cultures with mine –and the cinema can offer that. I always try to make my music tell something that the image does not particularly say – something about the feelings and emotions that it provokes, about the unspoken.

Surrounded by music since he was a child and formed to the cello, David Reyes felt a compelling urge for composing music by writing at the age of 15 a piece for a school theater play. He joined the IAD School to study film directing and obtains his diploma in 2003; then he leaves Belgium for France to make a career in film music. After many short movies, he scores his first long-feature movie in 2006 : “Paris 2010 the Great Flood”. His first work for the cinema will be “The Fox and The Child” in 2007, followed by such movies as “Min Yé” (selected at Cannes Film Festival in 2009), “Behind The Walls”, “Before Snowfall” or “Une Chanson Pour Ma Mère” (Magritte of Best Debut Film), among many works for television.

Guy Van Nueten Guy Van Nueten began playing piano at the age of 5, when he was sent to the local music school by his mother. As a result of this, he found he was able to read music before the written word. Around the age of 15 he started to show an interest in pop/rock music and, following his studies in mathematical economics, he threw himself fully into a musical career. During his time with The Sands their nameless debut album was produced by Bill Janovitz of American group Buffalo Tom and issued worldwide by Universal. The group went on to tour throughout Europe with the likes of John Cale. Among the numbers written by Guy Van Nueten for The Sands was the ‘Belpop’ classic ‘April and June’, a track that can still be heard on the radio more than 20 years on and crops up regularly in the ‘Top 100 Belgian songs of all time’.

He has also composed for film-makers, theatre directors and choreographers, as well as for famous theatre companies from the Benelux countries such as Toneelhuis, Toneelgroep Amsterdam, Les Ballets C de la B, deFilharmonie and HETPALEIS. For the last of these he penned the musical ‘Soepkinders’ in 2005, winner of a Flemish Musical Award. In the film world he has written soundtracks for directors Koen Mortier (‘Ex Drummer’) and Alex Stockman (‘Eva’ in 2006, an award-winner at the Venice Film Festival, and ‘Pulsar’, featuring Matthias Schoenaerts, in 2012). His music for the Ballets C de la B dance production ‘Bâche’ (2005) was hailed a masterpiece by the music magazine OOR for its “unique combination of a modern electronic sonic feast coupled with sensitive Elizabethan music.”

Thierry Van Roy

I am an experienced musician, producer and sound engineer/designer, having initiated musical projects on four continents. I am comfortable in various musical spheres but mostly at home in the fusion/world music field, having produced albums on Realworld/Peter Gabriel, Naïve, Jaro among others, and composed music for films (Au delà de Gibraltar), Television, video art (with Shanglie Zhou), radio drama and cartoons. My main focus is on composing music for images, finding my source of inspiration in the various cultures I’ve encountered through the artistic disciplines that I practice (writing, sculpture, etc.).  I am fortunate to  live in a beautiful forest- I often bring my equipment into the depths of the woods to compose and arrange, under the watchful gaze of deer and wild boars.

Gauthier Vilain

He is the guitarist of the post rock cinematic band CECILIA::EYES, with whom he released several records praised by the local and international press. Always interested by cinematic music compositions, he did start composing alone for image and cinema in 2015. Most of his dramatic and melancholic compositions are a soft mix between piano, ensembles cords and brass, often influenced by the simplicity and efficiency of Alexandre Desplat’s works (his major influence). He can also composes more epic tracks, or, being a guitarist of a post rock cinematic band, mix genres and influences to match the project he’s working on. The fact that he’s starting in the business can be an asset for lots of new directors or new projects with lower budget.

Steve Willaert Steve Willaert is a film and tv composer, known for his diversity and ability to work in the classical, ethnical, pop and electronic field. Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s, he worked a lot with synthesizers and electronics and developed at the same time a career as arranger for orchestras ( Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra, The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, The London Philharmonic Orchestra a.o.). All this experience comes together in his scoring, also the use of his collection of ethnic and weird

instruments,. always in search of new and interesting sounds and textures. He believes a lot in keeping an open vision and communication before and during the scoring process, not only between composer and director or producer but also between composer and editor or soundpeople, creating an atmosphere of trust and teamwork. The filmmakers’ view, the musical dialogue with the images, the story and the freedom in musical choices are cornerstones of his working process .... and also delivering the music on time and within budget.

Tom Willebrords My writing style as a composer can be seen as a quote by Danny Elfman: “If there’s one thing I really love, it’s sad music.” If a track that I’ve created makes me cry, I know that that strong feeling could also be felt by the audience listening to it. It’s not that I only write ‘sad’ music but passing on the emotion you have to someone else is a great thing and that’s one of the main reasons I want to become a film composer. I have not officially done any scores for films, TV series or video games, but I’m looking forward to this moment! I would say I’m a fast learner, very eager to learn and always motivated! I practise my skills by doing scoring assignments for Evan Evans, son of jazz pianist Bill Evans. I also re-score movie trailers, I did this for trailers like ‘Lion’, ‘Jackie’,

‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’,... As a kid I was a really big fan of Spielberg’s movies and since he works most of the time with John Williams I’m therefore also a big Williams fan. The interests in film music, as in paying more attention to the score than the movie itself, came when I listened to John Powell’s score for Ice Age 2 (Mini- Sloths Sing-A-Long in particular). It was just perfect. Funny, great orchestration and it set me thinking how he made that track. As I do not go to school to study music I learn most of what I know by reading books, blogs,… and composing of course. Two years ago I finally decided to buy a decent DAW and that’s when it came over me. Influenced by Hans Zimmer, John Powell, Harry Gregson Williams,… I started making my own tracks and so the love for composing started growing. I may not have accomplished a lot as a composer yet, but I would like dedicate these last words to my late father who always supported me in what I loved doing. The same goes for my lovely mother and my amazing girlfriend Emilie. Thank you for believing in me.
