Los Angeles-based Edouard Brenneisen creates emotionally dynamic music scores for film, television and interactive entertainment. Specializing in orchestral drama, Brenneisen also infuses his love for “electricity” and obscure instruments in many of his scores. His work stretches from full-fledged orchestral scores to industrial, bleeding-edge electronic mayhem. True to his European upbringing, Brenneisen holds a particular interest for deep emotions and powerful melodies.
Edouard Brenneisen’s recent work include music for the sci-fi drama feature “Population: 2”, the animation series “Yu-Gi-Oh!”, the David Attenborough documentary “Micro Monsters 3D”, and video games “Shibashiba” and “Last Knight: Rogue Rider”. He has explored the mind of a tortured serial killer in “The Barber”, depicted the sweeping vistas of the Middle East in the documentary “Ode to my Mother”, as well as created the aural backdrop of the technology-heavy thriller “Cybergeddon”. Edouard is quickly becoming known for his lyrical and emotionally compelling scores, as well as for his collaborative process and meticulous attention to detail.
Following traditional composition and jazz guitar studies at the American School of Modern Music in Paris (where he was born), 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 live music scene there. Around the same time, he started to get busy writing music for film and television, which prompted his subsequent move to Los Angeles.
“The way I see my work as a film music composer, I am mapping out the human heart. Observing, sustaining, coercing, magnifying, expressing and creating emotions – that is what I strive to achieve in my work”.
Edouard Brenneisen currently resides in Los Angeles with his fiancée Billye and their wizard dog Potter.
