My new album Collecting Sounds Around the World is finally out!
Afternoon Break in Varanasi was filmed in India’s holy city. Playing music on the side of the ganges is always very inspiring, not because of the river itself, but because of the people that pass through and gather around the ghats. A fascinating landscape that I’ll never tire of.
Disclaimer: The comic relief wasn’t planned
New cinematic track Passerby
Several of my recordings of Indian ceremonies were used in this song to portrait the beautiful and chaotic nature of religious gatherings during Indian festivals.
Really happy about the soundtrack I wrote for this new exciting video about the festivals in India. India is unique and very complex and trying to express how I feel about it musically has been quite a ride.
The idea for this track came to me while I was staying in the remote village of Chheneng in Cambodia.
The villagers next door were having a wedding. In the song, the man you hear talking through a speakerphone is the MC hosting the ceremony. His monotonous voice was all I heard, without intermission, for two days. Those endless nights had a peculiar atmosphere.
Eventually came the time to feast and the cries of the pig…

Last short film I scored about the nomad Tumur, preparing for winter in northern Mongolia.
I composed the music & sound for this beautiful poetic short-film about the highest cheese factory in the world, located in the mountains of the Himalaya in Nepal.
Travel Diaries - Little Cambodians know how to steal the show. Played some music for them in the floating village of Kompong Luong.
