BIOGRAPHY

Eric Neveux decided to become a real musician at the age of 15, so he left the conservatory where he was studying and quit his music theory classes and piano lessons.

Ten years later, he met Francois Ozon, then a young director just graduating from film school. Eric composed the score for Ozon’s first short film, ‘Regarde La Mer’, and the theme for his first feature, ‘Sitcom’.

At the same time, he found himself more and more influenced by and passionate about the emerging Bristol trip-hop scene. He created his alter ego, Mr Neveux. ‘Tuba’, the first album using this name, was signed to Cup of Tea Records, a much beloved Bristol trip-hop label, sadly now extinct, gone but not forgotten.

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, spanning several projects together, including Intimacy (Golden Bear winner at Berlin Film Festival 2001), and Persecution (Mostra 2009). Through this long collaboration on different films, Eric has discovered and created music for a large variety of scenarios, moods, and atmospheres. He has played with 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.
