Michel is currently composing the music of Cinekino, an ARTE series of 10 documentaries on European cinema by Laurent Heynemann and Matthias Luthard.

He is the author of the music for the upcoming film by Thierry Michel and Pascal Colson, Les enfants du hasard – Children of chance, which will be released in March.

Michel has composed and coordinated the soundtrack for Terra Masonica, a feature-length documentary by Tristan Bourlard, produced by Nexus Factory (coming soon).

He is on the RTBF for the animated series Petit Poilu, which he assembles the music composed by Emilie Gassin and Benjamin Violet during all this season.

And to stay on the same channel, he will compose with Thierry Plas the music of Unité 42, the next series RTBF produced by Left Field Ventures and realized by Indra Siera.

His work

The shortest route is not always the most direct one. It took 40 years for Michel to realise that film music was his vocation. But what a vocation !

After a childhood bathed in classical music, he discovered rock music at the age of 20 and abandoned his studies in economics to set up a recording studio. Between doing odd jobs to earn a living and some acting jobs, he became involved in community groups where he developed his innate skills in organisation and management. He discovered improvisation, did a few plays and gradually moved away from music.

But the call of Apollo pursued him. Music caught up with him by chance in 2010 when he was doing a play and the stage director asked him to do the sound design. This was like a delayed but irresistible flash of lightning that made him drop everything he was doing and assume a passion he thought was extinguished.

His experience in theatre had developed a very pronounced taste for narration and narrative techniques. He is familiar with the pace and atmosphere of stories, visual textures and sounds, the notion of irony, tragedy, burlesque, etc. He is able to support words with music and stay focussed on the intention.

Within a few years, his inexhaustible eagerness and tireless quest for precision has enabled him to turn his late career into an advantage. He has recently produced music for films by Stéphane De Groodt, Thierry Michel and Patrick Ridremont.

His music
At General Score
Michel Duprez prints his compositions with a very personal paw infused with symphonic notes, rock and pop. His obvious appeal for film music and his acting career make him particularly attentive to meaning and narration. He is also an empathic coordinator, and one of the pillars of General Score.
