Alexandre Desplat - Contemporary Gothic Conductor and Composer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows


Alexandre Desplat


Alexandre Desplat is a prolific French composer who has won dozens of awards for nearly 100 films for which he has provided sound track. As composer for Twilight New Moon and the newly released Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, he has established himself as a preeminent composer for the contemporary gothic genre of movie that is finding a resurgence in popularity.

The lush dark tones are both sensual and mysterious and add mood, atmosphere and a sense of urgent foreboding  that further deepens and illuminates struggles of characters against the force of nature and an underworld of power and dark beauty that cannot be escaped.
