Eric Neveux decided to become a real musician at the age of 15…
…so he left the Conservatory where he studied and quit his piano and music theory classes.
He was greatly influenced by the emerging Bristol-scene, and created his alter ego, Mr Neveux that was signed by the now legendary Cup of Tea Records.
Eric’s future in the world of film and TV soundtracks was cemented in 1997, when he met and worked with Patrice Chereau on his film, Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train (Official Selection, Cannes Film Festival 1997).
It marked the beginning of a long collaboration with the director, which bore projects such as Intimacy (Golden Bear winner, Berlin Film Festival 2001), and Persecution (Mostra 2009).
Nowadays Eric is in demand from feature film and TV directors throughout Europe to give his own unique soundtrack touch to their films. He has recently worked with Mikael Buch, Jean Luc Perreard, Pascale Pouzadoux and Delphine Gleize.
Through his various works, Eric has combined images portraying a variety of scenarios and atmospheres with music rich and varied in genre, texture, and ambiance.
From comedy to drama, full orchestra to electro-acoustic, independent to mass-audience, Eric approaches each project as a blank page, a new effort to collaborate fully with the director’s vision.
