Yves has just finished the composition of Terra Masonica, the documentary of Tristan Bourlard produced by Nexus Factory, within the collective of General Score.
His work
After obtaining a diploma in piano and composing from the Royal Conservatory of Mons, Yves started his musical career at the age of 17 as a bar pianist and then, when he was 19, he joined the Mons Academy of Music and Spoken Arts as a piano teacher. As well as becoming one of the youngest music academy directors in Wallonia, he was awarded the first prize in the jazz-piano section at the Conservatory of Brussels. At the same time, he became a piano teacher at the Mons Academy of Arts (ARTS²) and set an improvisation class of which he is the current teacher. These two careers intersect in the projects he undertakes – he can be both a musician and a teacher and sometimes these projects are exceptional. For example, he works with the Arthouse Cinema “Le Plaza” in Mons: every year since 2005, the improvisation classes have moved into the cinema to produce live music for the silent films screened there. Over the years, they have accompanied all genres of silent films, from naturalism to burlesque.

This brilliant pianist, composer and orchestrator has taken part in many projects involving jazz, classical and variety, unashamedly mixing up genres. He is also a producer, sound engineer, musical director and scenarist and is considered an eclectic, insatiable and passionate magician.

Currently working as a co-composer for an animated television series called “Géronimo Stilton”, he has developed a film music production tool that combines the best of both worlds: digitally produced music (virtual instruments) and acoustic music (real instruments).
