Casual Melancholia is a Swiss composer and pianist.
Casual Melancholia’s practice is centred around a conversation between today’s sounds and technology and the techniques and practices of the Baroque period.
His work explores these relationships through blending neo-classical, electronic and cinematic soundscapes, forming his signature sound.
His fearless approach to bringing lightness and darkness together in his compositions has drawn collaborators from the film, fashion and dance world including rising Parisian designer Alphonse Maître Pierre (SS20 fashion show), NOWNESS and choreographer Lali Ayguade.
Casual Melancholia is currently scoring the music for two feature films. His latest collaboration ‘Avant Tim,’ Alexis Diop, was awarded Grand Prix Du Jury at the FFIB (2021.)
