Thomas Chabalier Film Scoring 1st Prize Award at Soundtrack Cologne in 2016

"



When Thomas discovered Kantor Or’s short-film “Little Thing”, he immediately felt a deep tenderness for the peculiar lead character, a little creature who wanders alone desperately looking for friends. Inspired, he composed a score that he submitted to the prestigious 2016 European Talent Competition, Soundtrack Cologne and won -beating out hundreds of submissions from across Europe. His soundtrack was delicate, fresh and daring and its jazz theme struck a chord with the judging panel, which was led by renowned composer, Yati Dunart.  The panel of judges included Jeff Van Evan from Chaussée Soundvision, one of the main recording studios in Germany, Tedi Van Tidemann, PDG of Contrast film, Robert Kraft, musical supervisor and the conductor of the WDR Fun band orchestra and Corinna Rottschy.


                     


The panel described his work as, “impressive and dynamic” and said his composition “excelled due to its effective support of drama while demonstrating high-quality musical structure and a rich harmonic language.” Thomas Chabalier has gone onto build on the success of this award.  He earned his Master of Arts in Jazz Performance from the Paris National Conservatoire, and a second Master of Arts degree in Film Scoring Composition from Columbia College of Chicago.  Thomas has further honed his already exceptional skills and garnered quality professional experience and commissions as a composer working in studios across Los Angeles, and most recently, in Jeff Grace’s New York studio as composer. Recently, the Malaysian production Upin & Ipin he’s been working on as an orchestrator, is in the running for the Oscars 2020 for Best Animated Picture.
