Laurent made his début on the Parisian scene as a Jazz guitar player while completing composition studies at the CIM, music school in Paris. He started his composing career in 1984.
Very soon, his passion for cinema led him to work in the major areas of the audiovisual sector.
He has written the music for a number of movies in a variety of genres - fiction, documentary, advertising and corporate - and worked with such directors as Enda McCallion, Fabrice Carazo, Tarsem, Satochi Saïkusa, Laurence Dunmore, Johnny Green, Joachim Back plus many others.
Laurent set up his studio in Meudon, near Paris, in 2007, and joined the GUM Collections label in 2012.
