Robert Charles Mann mastering Cinematic Dark Lights at Color Sound Studio Paris

As far back as I can remember, the soundtrack of my childhood was the music my mother played. She was an extraordinary concert pianist who inspired my bent for orchestral music of all eras with her impressionist and romantic repertoire. My life in Los Angeles producing performance art, playing in punk bands and composing electronic music accounts for the flip side of my interests like using unusual instruments from around the world, playing screaming guitar riffs or recording found objects and later morphing them into an ambient sonic environment enveloped by orchestra.

After a period of producing photography, another terribly important part of my life, I decided to return to my music roots and compose music for image. I studied orchestration with Hummie Mann in Edinburgh Scotland at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program, then achieved production and mixing credentials at London Institute of Sound Engineering. I also studied at Musicians Institute in Hollywood and Ohio State University School of Music.

I have co-composed with Cliff Martinez, an old friend, on films such as SEVERE CLEAR and ESPIONS, nominated “César du Meilleur Premier Film”, and scored THE GLOWING HOURS which was nominated the “Gold Medal for Excellence in Original Music for a Dramatic Short Film” at Park City Film Music Awards. My commercial work includes branding themes for France Telecom (Orange) and Sony, as well as advertisements for Ducati and Calvin Klein. I also composed the ambient sound installation for Futuroscope in France and received a Mention du Jury at the Festival Silhouette in Paris for my soundtrack to Orpheus Descending.

My most recent albums are CINEMATIC DARK LIGHTS with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra conducted by François Rousselot, electro-ambient production music TENSE ATMOSPHERES and WORLD FUSION 2 featuring Rodrigo Gonzalez-Miqueles, all produced by Montmorency Music in Paris and have been used in many films and documentaries.

I teach workshops in music composition and photography, most recently with Globalizedu at the Cinémathèque Robert Lynen in Paris. I now live in France but return often to Los Angeles for new projects. Please contact me if you have any inquiries or project proposals.
