Press Release from Music Box:
Music Box Records is pleased to present, for the first time on CD, an album dedicated to French composer Philippe Miller and a selection of his best works composed for the screen (Cinema and television) between 1997 and 2016.
Born in Paris in 1962, Philippe Miller is a musician and a self-taught composer. He composes scores for film, television and theatrical productions. He also teaches at the Conservatory of Gennevilliers. With a background in classical piano studies and music theory, Miller was introduced to orchestration through rehearsals with the Orchestre de Paris. Miller’s first composition for stage was for Génération Chaos (1991), a play written and directed by Marc’O. Nominated at the César awards in 1998, the musical drama film Jeanne et le Garcon Formidable (Jeanne and the Perfect Guy, 1998) marked the debut of his first soundtrack for a feature-length movie.
This compilation shows the talent of Philippe Miller as a film music composer and highlights his two main collaborations with Hélène Angel (Peau d'homme cœur de bête, Rencontre avec le dragon, Propriété interdite and Primaire) and duo of directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau (Jeanne et le Garçon formidable and Nés en 68). The CD is a limited editon of 300 units.
