About the artists
Stephan Esperanza-Suzor is a Franco-American composer born and raised in the Bay Area, California. Born to a French father, and L.A. based mother, his arrival in Paris is linked both to his musical aspirations and a desire to reroot himself in his European lineage. From his early adolescence, Stephan found, through the craft of piano, a joy and means of self-expression in improvisation and composition. At 18 years old, he decided that this unique art form was one he wished to develop and devote himself to, and thus began his apprenticeship and friendship with teacher and conductor Charles Ketcham. With a still alive encouragement from Charles, Stephan has continued his work this year at conservatory La Schola Cantorum de Paris, where he will first and foremost study piano and composition. Concurrently, Stephan will be engaged in developing the original score for a New York based feature film project, to be released in 2021. Having long found great inspiration in cinema, he sees this engagement as a promising entry point into the world of scoring. Looking at the year ahead, Stephan feels both keen and fortunate to be able to share his creations, and collaborate with his new fellow residents at FEU’s Musical Rendez-Vous.
Born in 1997, Timothée Lambert began his artistic studies in the preparatory class of ENSBA Lyon, before starting at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. After photography and stage design, he went back to his childhood obsession: drawings, stories, and lettering. His current works are taken and composed from diaries, impulsive ideas, in order to become comfortable with them and to create intimacy with the reader.
Libéral Martin lives and works in Paris. He enters the ENSAD in 2014 where he followed a cursus in Animation movies. Between 2015 and 2016 he directes two first shorts, Destinations in Querelles de clochers willing to merge music and animated images. Those experiments would lead him to other multi-technic short-films, Willem Van Haechtand, VERTE OFF in 2016 and also Fake 48-6 in 2017 on animation stage. He goes further with his research on synesthesia in his thesis : Du mouvement musical à l’image in which he presents the variety of connections between music and images in cinema and in animation. In 2018 he integrates the community of artist residents at the Fondation des États-Unis in Paris. In June 2020 he completes his last animation short The Mecanorgans.
