Bio

Born in Switzerland and based in Brussels, Hugo Lippens is a composer for film, theatre, video games, art video and new media. He has scored features and short films that have premiered in international film festivals, the last one being a feature film by Academy Award winner Pierre Bismuth (Where is Rocky II?). In 2014, He was nominated for the award “Best Young European Composer” at the World Soundtrack Awards.

Having a Master in History and Aesthetics of Cinema allows him to thoroughly analyze the film to be scored. He makes every effort to create a score which is both original and reflecting the guidelines of the director. As a cinephile, Hugo Lippens is fond of Fellini, Paul Thomas Anderson and Miyazaki, and defends a view of cinema with music as a fundamental element.
