François de Roubaix


Son of filmmaker Paul de Roubaix, François became interested in both scuba-diving and music as a teen. While working as an assistant on a film by Robert Enrico in 1959, he was given the opportunity to write the soundtrack. This led to dozens of film soundtracks beginning in 1965 with Les Grandes Gueules, mainly of the orchestral variety, but sprinkled in with bits of rock, jazz and funk. He eventually began to incorporate electronic elements into his music Read more on Last.fm
Son of filmmaker Paul de Roubaix, François became interested in both scuba-diving and music as a teen. While working as an assistant on a film by Robert Enrico in 1959, he was given the opportunity to write the soundtrack. This led to dozens of film soundtracks beginning in 1965 with Les Grandes Gueules, mainly of the orchestral variety, but sprinkled in with bits of rock, jazz and funk. He eventually began to incorporate electronic elements into his music, and with 1972's La Scoumoune he had produced and performed a score completely independently.

His electronic scores were accompaniment to his other love, scuba diving, as several films during the early 1970s were documentaries at sea. In 1974, de Roubaix was contacted by Jacques Cousteau to provide the score for the documentary L'Antarctique. The electro-acoustic score did nothing for the musically-conservative Cousteau, much to de Roubaix's chagrin. A year later while diving off the Canaries, de Roubaix drowned.

He was 36. In 1976 he was awarded posthumously a César for best film music for his last work, Le Vieux Fusil. Source: http://rateyourmusic.com/artist/francois_de_roubaix Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
