Edouard BrenneisenBiography

Edouard Brenneisen writes music for moving pictures. A native of France, the passionate composer strives to enhance the projects he works on, infusing innovation and his rich, emotionally charged European musical roots into his music. Brenneisen enjoys a multifaceted career, encompassing work for film, television, advertising and video games. With a particular kinship for orchestral drama music, he wrote music for the science fiction film “Population: 2”, the animation series “Yu-Gi-Oh!”, Sir David Attenborough’s “Micro Monsters 3D” documentary, and video games “Shibashiba” and “Last Knight”, amongst others. A versatile composer, he composed and produced edgy, electronic music for the “City of Lost Souls” trailer, and the Anthony Zuiker “Cybergeddon” series.

Los Angeles-based Edouard Brenneisen is a film, TV and new media music composer, orchestrator and producer. Specializing in orchestral drama, Brenneisen also infuses his love for obscure and bizarre instruments in many of his scores.

His work stretches from full-fledged orchestral scores to industrial, cutting-edge may- hem. True to his European upbringing, Brenneisen holds a particular interest for sophisticated, colorful harmonies and orchestrations.

Edouard’s recent work include music for the science fiction feature film drama “Population: 2”, the animation series “Yu-Gi-Oh!”, the trailer for the upcoming IMAX documentary “Micro Monsters 3D”, and video games “Shibashiba” and “Last Knight”.

Following traditional composition and guitar studies at the American School of Modern Music in Paris (the city he was born in), Edouard Brenneisen left France for Boston to attend the famous Berklee College of Music. After graduating “summa cum laude” from Berklee, Edouard moved to New York City, where he immersed himself in the Jazz club scene there. At the same time, he started to get busier writing music for film and television, which prompted his subsequent move to Los Angeles.

The transition between the world of contemporary improvised music and music for the moving picture was a seamless one. “My improvisation-based music was very programatic in nature. The way I see my work as a film music composer, I’m essentially doing the same thing, and that is mapping out the human heart. Observing, sustaining, coercing, magnifying, expressing and creating emotions – that is what I have been striving to do since I started making music”, admits Brenneisen.

Edouard Brenneisen currently resides in Los Angeles with his girlfriend Billye and their wizard dog Potter.
