Pianist and composer Dominique Charpentier was born in Nîmes, southern France, in 1988. Fascinated by the piano sound since an early age, he began to play it at 8. Classical music and more precisely, romantic artists like Chopin and Schubert, were his first strong influences but the revelation about his musical path came with the notes of Yann Tiersen and later on, Ludovico Einaudi. The simple but intense melodies led him toward minimalist music. It is still the heart of his work, being focused on composing simple but true, deep emotional music that moves the listener immediately. So far he has released two piano solo album: Passages, in 2016, Réminiscence, in 2018, and two experimental EPs, L'attente and Esquisses, in 2017. Although the piano remains the core of his work, his extreme curiosity and open-mindedness led him to explore new musical territories. Video-games, Theatre Plays or movie soundtracks, are also an important part of his career and that is where his multi-instrumentalist talents become handy. Alongside his solo project, composing for movies has been his main focus since 2012. In 2016 he met director Ofir Raul Graizer and composed the soundtrack for his first feature film The Cakemaker, which was nominated at Karlovy Vary Festival, BFI London, Chicago Film Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival and many more. The movie got various awards and the music was uninanimously welcomed by the critics. The original score was released at the beginning of 2018.
