Biography

Jean-Marc Lederman comes from an alternative/industrial music background but his work has always integrate cinematic elements and moving into film soundtracks and videogames seems like a natural move.

His debuts in the music world have seen him play in bands like the iconic Matt Johnson’s The The, Gene Loves Jezebel, the very unfluential Fad Gadget, cult industrial band The Weathermen. He also made collaborative works with bands like Front 242 and french rockstar Alain Bashung for whom he write “Ode à la vie” on the highly successful and heralded masterpiece “Fantaisie Militaire”.

From the mid-90’s, Jean-Marc started to make videogames soundtracks where his cinematic and original sound made quite an impression and several games went on to be hit productions. He was drafted in as senior music composer by US top 3 videogames company Big Fish Games.

Mid-2005, Lederman pushes into movie soundtracks and he was main composer on the newly awarded “Doubleplusonegood” full feature movie but he was also second composer to Ramin Djawadi on the Canal+ production “African Safari”. So far, he has worked on 3 full features and a couple of shorts.

The originality of Lederman’s sound comes from his uncanny use of electronic elements sometimes mixed with natural sounding classical instruments used in very unclassical ways.

The recent success of movie soundtracks like “Drive” or the TV series “Stranger Things” and “Mr Robot” give a new light to his sound, be it bold and adventurous or charming and seductive.

Composers ressemblances is always a tricky question but Lederman’s sound has surely some affinity to Mc Quayle, Atticus Ross/Trent Reznor, Clint Mansell or David Julyan.
