“Each film should be taken as a prototype, fitting the entire sound process to each film” – NICOLAS BECKER

Nicolas Becker is one of the most sought-after foley artists, sound designers and composers in the world. He tries to find an original process for each film, putting forward a uniquely creative reasoning in order to obtain very special material. He has collaborated with filmmakers including Roman Polanski, David Cronenberg, Matthieu Kassovitz, Andrea Arnold and Danny Boyle. In 2013, he received his second Golden Reel award for his work on Gravity by Alfonso Cuarón.
Becker is also a research and development consultant for many studios and firms who create audio software. He teaches regularly in film schools including La Femis in Paris and the NFTS in the UK. He is also a member of the band, Manasonics.

He is now expanding his work into areas of sound art and sound supervision on a variety of projects: sound artistic director for the DAU project (Russia); sound supervisor for Philippe Parreno’s next exhibition at the Armory Park (New York City) and composer for the films Technology by Maiko Endo (Japan) and Hilda Hist Pede Contanto by Gabriella Greeb (Brazil). He will be the sound designer for the next album by electronic musician Agoria, sound artist for the Opera Garnier in Paris and for an operatic project with Philippe Parreno, Benjamin Millepieds and Nico Muhly, and Foley artist for David Yates’ next film, Tarzan.

During the event Becker will speak about his work as a sound designer, foley and sound artist showing samples from most significant projects of his career.
