Composer Eric Neveux was 25 when he met director François Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women) and composed the score for his first long-form film, See the Sea. Ozon then asked him to score his first feature film, Sitcom. Shortly thereafter, Neveux began a long-term collaboration with Patrice Chéreau, scoring his film Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train (Cannes Film Festival Official Selection, 1997), followed by Intimacy (Berlin Film Festival Golden Bear award-winner, 2001), and Persecution, (Venice Film Festival, 2009).

Eric Neveux has composed original music for 60 feature films, as well as a variety of scores for TV movies and series. Recent score highlights include two installments of director Rachid Bouchareb’s American Trilogy; Just Like a Woman (starring Sienna Miller and Golshifteh Farahani), and Two Men in Town(2014), with Forest Whitaker and Harvey Keitel; and later, Bouchareb’s film Road to Istanbul in 2016 (the last two being official selections of the Berlin Film Festival). Eric’s passion for independent film is further illustrated by his work on titles such as La Vie Domestique by Isabelle Czajka, Standing Tall (La Tête Haute) by Emmanuelle Bercot, the Cannes Film Festival’s opening film in 2015, The Attack (2013), and The Insult (2017), by Ziad Doueiri which was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards.

Under the moniker Mr. Neveux, Eric made important contributions to the 90s Downtempo music scene, most notably with the release of his album, TUBA (Cup of Tea Records). Later he co-founded Microbe Records, a respected home for indie artists in France and the United Kingdom.

Eric and his family divide their time between Los Angeles and Paris.
