Desplat, Alexandre Biography




biography of Desplat, Alexandre

23 August 1961, Paris, France


-   Started playing piano at the age of 5.

-   His Greek mother and French father met in the US while attending university. After the marriage, they moved to France where Desplat was born.

-   One of 115 peopled invited to join AMPAS in 2007.

-   Was nominated for Film Composer of the Year by the International Film Music Critics Association in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. He only won the award in 2007.


-   Over the past 15 years, I've been able to build a voice, something that looks like me. I don't know if it's a "new" voice as some say, it's not within my ability to say - but I write what I like! So it's "me". I come from France, and I've worked here, and in England, and Spain, and I'm not going to dump the past 15 years of my life when I come to Hollywood. I will still improve by doing a European movie once in a while, because there's a different approach to film scoring. Even a film with a small budget - I don't care, as long as I can be creative. And being creative is the way to move forward.

-   Funnily enough, almost at the same time that the Hollywood career started to ascend, I received two major awards for Best Score in Europe: the Silver Bear in Berlin, and the Cesar in France. And suddenly it made sense that the stars were aligned at the same time here and there. I still have not gotten an award here, so I still have a long way to go! I think 'Maurice Jarre' (qv) had three, and 'Michel Legrand' (qv) had two or three. 'Gabriel Yared' (qv) had one. So, I have to work a little bit.
