Michel Herr (composer, arranger and conductor) has composed and orchestrated music for numerous films and all kinds of media (tv, etc…).
His jazz background, his stylistic flexibility and his imagination have served contrasting projects, always with a personal touch.
From simple and moving melodies to more abstract musical atmospheres, from acoustic instruments to electric textures, from intimate solos to large orchestral ensembles, etc… his wide musical palette covers many grounds with creativity, taste and sensitivity.
