Like many musicians around the world, you can enjoy the free resources of this website. In the same spirit of versatility, research of understanding and mastery of musical phenomena in a coherent whole, I offer different services for composers.
About the services
All services are offered as freelance with the possibility to study your project
to establish an estimate for free.
Orchestrator, copyist and engraver
Orchestrating or copying the scores of more than 20 feature films, concerts for symphonic orchestra, big band, musical comedy ... allows me to adapt to the needs of each composer for the preparation of any recording or concert :
- orchestration according to handwritten sketches or MIDI mockups
- finalization of orchestration and transcription according to detailed MIDI mockups and / or audio files
- copy of scores according to a detailed manuscript or finalized MIDI mockups
- finalization of orchestral material from Sibelius or Dorico files
- printing and binding
Through my experiences as an orchestral musician, conducting and the research work I have done with musicians from different sections, I am able to design a material with the highest level of writing accuracy. In addition to saving time in repetition or recording, this accuracy of realization, allows you to get a final result much closer to what you can expect from a simple transcription.
Music recordist & music editor
My early works as composer assistant went along with studio assistant missions... and I did not suspect at this time the passion that I was going to develop for the recording of acoustic instruments. Specialized in the recording of small formations and soloists, my experiences allow me to propose solutions in studio as in situ. For your albums and your original music, I put at your disposal a mastery and a sense of detail developed by the recording of virtual instruments.
- recording of small formations
- in studio or in situ
- artistic direction
- editing of recordings
I do not offer mixing services nether mastering, but I will be able to put you in touch with the person who fit your project. If the style or the formation to be recorded is out of my specialization range, I can also put you in touch with the best person for your project.
Custum virtual instruments
Following the first releases of inouï samples instruments, several composers ordered custom virtual instruments. Shepard Designer is originally designed specifically for composer Jérôme LEMONNIER, or Your Colors for composer Romain TROUILLET.
Depending on your needs, I can:
- help you before recording to:
- draw the instrument plans
- define the sample choices
- anticipate specific needs during the recording session
- clean and edit samples (advice or production)
- export, rename and integrate the samples (advice or production)
- script for Kontakt
- define the necessary elements for the UI
- assemble and finalize the instrument
Several projects are currently in preparation with different French studios. My rates are adapted to the distribution you have planned (exclusive use, marketing with or without mention of inouï samples, freeware ...).
After starting as a soloist, chamber and orchestra musician for live events, I decided to get specialized in recording. In parallel to these experiences of classical and contemporary music, I played in various concert styles as jazz, klezmer, cuban music, pop-rock (on saxophone), cabaret evenings...
I offer you my services for all your recordings, whether you are looking for the softness of a velvet sound or an explosive virtuosity. For concerts, I need to measure my commitments before embarking on a project to be the one you can rely on for both the quality of interpretation and involvement.
