Biography

Musician, Composer and cinephile, Olivier Militon move towards his creative way by getting a Master Degree of of applied music on Visual Arts in 2009 (Master MAAAV).

I quickly became a film lover, I was carried away by the story, the staging. I didn’t “listen” to movies, in the sense that I didn’t pay a specific attention to music by dissociating it from the rest, I lived the cinema as a total experience, almost physical.

Audi talents Awards Finalist in 2011, Berlinale Talents and Emergence Cinema Laureate in 2015, he wins several european and international soundtracks prizes including the European Talent Award at the Soundtrack Cologne festival in 2011, a Jerry Goldsmith Awards in 2013 and more recently the Best Music for a Documentary in International Film Music Festival FIMUCITE (Spain – 2019).

I love in film music this particularity of flirting with many musical styles, travelling into different universes from one project to another: from orchestral to world music, from Jazz to electro ! This feeds my musical imagination in the service of the Story. The way we look at the narration is the central point of my creative process. I like to be devoted on a project, to take part in this collective adventure that is the film.
