SYLVAIN GOURLAY is a French pianist and composer... Sylvain Gourlay

SYLVAIN GOURLAY - born May 15th 1985 in Blois, France, originally from Brittany, is a pianist and composer. He started playing the piano aged 7 and started being awarded conservatory prizes only several years later. He then focused his interest on contemporary music (pop music, electro music, jazz and rock music) that brought up a new inspiration for his writing. Meeting and improvising with fellow composers such as Levinas, Mulsant, Jolas, Pécou, Markeas or Hersant, he wrote numerous pieces for solo piano. They were all greatly inspired by Satie, Debussy, Chopin, Rachmaninov but also from innovative styles (Glass, Jarrett, Gonzales and Tellier).
At the beginning of 2010, he wrote his first album called Momentaneus, ephemeral musical moments....
In the meantime, he worked hand in hand with several choreographers and so wrote for dancers. (Tango's Project Quartet, 14²). Those pieces of art are obviously linked to the image and the picture and it wasn't surprising to learn Sylvain wanted to write music for the cinema.
Thus, he wrote his album keeping this goal in mind. He recently wrote the soundtrack of the AXA documentary "A journey into longevity". His first album, entitled Momentaneus and supported by Paris Jeunes Talents for Dolala Records is distributed by MVS Anticraft and edited by XIII Bis Records/Warner.
Sylvain Gourlay
SYLVAIN GOURLAY - né le 15 Mai 1985 à Blois, d'origine bretonne, est un pianiste et compositeur français. Il commence le piano à l'âge de 7 ans et obtient quelques années plus tard des premiers prix en conservatoire. Il s'intéresse par la suite à la musique actuelle (pop, électro, jazz, rock) qui lui amène une inspiration nouvelle pour l'écriture. En rencontrant et improvisant avec des compositeurs contemporains comme Levinas, Mulsant, Jolas, Pécou, Markeas ou Hersant, il écrit différentes pièces pour piano solo inspirées de Satie, Debussy, Chopin, Rachmaninov et d'autres styles (Glass, Jarrett, Gonzales, Tellier).

En début d'année 2010, il compose son premier recueil de morceaux nommé Momentaneus, moments musicaux éphémères… Parallèlement, il collabore avec plusieurs chorégraphes et compose pour la danse (Tango's Project Quartet et 14²).
Ces compositions sont évidemment liées à l'image, et donc au cinéma, ce qui rend ces pièces très adaptées à la musique de film. Il a d'ailleurs composé récemment la publicité et le documentaire pour AXA « A journey into Longevity ». Sylvain Gourlay
Son premier album Momentaneus, soutenu par Paris Jeunes Talents sous le label Dolala Records est distribué par MVS Anticraft et édité par XIII Bis Records/Warner.
