Edouard Brenneisen writes music for moving pictures. Equally at ease writing lush orchestral score, producing cutting-edge sound design electronic soundscapes, or enhancing the mood of a film with simple piano lines, Brenneisen enjoys a multi-faceted career, encompassing work for film, television, advertising and video games.
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.
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”, Brenneisen confesses.
As a composer, 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”.
Edouard Brenneisen currently resides in Los Angeles.
