Who: Charles-Henri Avelange is an award-winning music composer for film and television residing in Los Angeles, California.

“I never really see myself as ‘just a musician’ per se, but also as a filmmaker in charge of the music department,” he says.

His most recent work includes the music for the hour-long sci-fi television pilot RENEGADES OMINARA starring the late Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek) in her final screen appearance and directed by Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager), plus the hour-long The Pilot of the Sci-Fi TV series NOBILITY, starring Doug Jones (Star Trek: Discovery), Chris Judge (Stargate: SG-1), Cas Anvar (The Expanse), Chekov Star Trek’s original Walter Koenig and many other sci-fi luminaries; the score for the contemporary sci-fi drama feature SIMPLE CREATURE starring Russell Hodgkinson (Z-Nation) and the supernatural western SIX GUN SAVIOR starring Eric Roberts (Expendables), Martin Kove (The Karate Kid) and guest starring Tim Russ ( Star Trek: Voyager). Charles-Henri grew up on the French Riviera, a stone’s throw from the Cannes Film Festival. The son of a colonel in the French army and a diplomat for the French government, his parents’ activity led him to live in various places around the world, including four years in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the last year of which during the first Gulf War. . He spent seven years in a 12th-century Templar castle in southwestern France, whose keep housed the last species of giant bats in Europe. It is in this context that Charles-Henri’s passion for musical creation began. At first, using digital keyboards available at home, his dedication to the craft led him to discover the world of analog synthesizers used by some of his heroes such as Vangelis and Jean-Michel Jarre.

He often performed live at private events and parties, being the solo orchestra surrounded by a sea of ​​keyboards and mixing consoles. His music has always been inspired by his favorite TV shows, movies and video games, which led him to enter yet another area of ​​composition: orchestral music. He fell in love with the power produced by a large ensemble of musicians and became a master at seamlessly merging his first love of MOOG-like analog synthesis with the organic, acoustic sound of a symphony orchestra.

He studied at the famous private film school ESRA Nice Côte d’Azur, in Nice, France. He holds a Master’s degree in sound engineering, sound design, music and film production and business from the Institut Supérieur des Techniques du Son.

Charles-Henri also learned all aspects of cinema, becoming familiar with the cameras. For more information, click on BIO.
