Portrait of the month : Julien Thuret, a composer with multiple skills.
Since his 14 years of age, Julien Thuret is a composer for the audiovisual sphere. At 37, piano, guitar and percussion have no more secrets for him.
The beginnings, the inspirations
Julien Thuret is now 37, married and a happy father of 2 children. Born in a modest family of 4 children, it was on a synthesizer bought by his father and then a church harmonium that at the age of 14 he composed his first pieces. With the growth of his passion, he learned the guitar, drums and other percussions without forgetting the violin which he self-taught.
Then comes musical composition. The young musician is inspired by John Williams (StarWars, Harry Potter, Back To The Future…), Hans Zimmer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Inception, The Dark Knight…) a little Linkin Park, U2, Evanescence or French Goldman and MC Solar. Having no training in the musical field, Julien allows his mind to direct his imagination in the meanders of the melodies. Only emotion guides him to fill the lines of the partition. Like Hans Zimmer, he mixes classical and electronic music.

It was on a Star Wars fan movie named The Sith Order that the artist made his arms. For an initial project of about ten minutes, he emerged a real feature film. Even if the challenge was great, he was able to compose the entire soundtrack. It is then that he is called for other projects of all kinds. Web-series, short and feature films, institutional videos, advertisements or even for singers, Julien is able to face all types of situations and his pen becomes a reflection of his imagination. An imagination that pleases.
In all his works, he tries to understand the vision of the director in order to make the music as fair as possible. Even if he sometimes has to face certain challenges such as lack of information on the part of the director, nothing frightens him and his work is done on time.
For him, music is essential to film, it is music that enhances the emotions conveyed by a work. Without it, a film is incomplete. How else can we support the intentions of the film?
To give the viewer the best possible result, the composer must match the music to the plans exactly. He explains: “Music, by its rhythm, its notes comes to “touch” each spectator in his emotions, his feelings with regard to the image as the actors, the beautiful special effects do. All this is a crucial mix for the success of a film. ”
« Music […] comes to “touch” each spectator in his emotions »
A « outro » that is not ready to arrive
Although Julien currently works as a human resources consultant, he leans to becoming a professional in the music industry. Major projects are coming up with the MICKEY BOOM series, the ELIE GRIMM trilogy, the SATANIC VERSES saga, the feature film COUP DE FODURE IN YAOUNDE and other projects in collaboration with MASON EWING CORPORATION …
Julien brilliantly manages the art of composing. Working on electro, classics and others, he knows how to adapt to different situations. Is there an Oscar on the way?
