Who: Charles-Henri Avelange is an award-winning composer of music for film and television residing in Los Angeles, CA.

“I never really think of myself as ‘only a musician’ per se, but also as a filmmaker in charge of the music department,” he says.”

His most recent work includes scoring the one-hour Sci-Fi TV Pilot RENEGADES OMINARA starring the late Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek) on her last onscreen appearance and directed by Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager), as well as the one-hour Sci-Fi TV series pilot NOBILITY, starring Doug Jones (Star Trek: Discovery), Chris Judge (Stargate: SG-1), Cas Anvar (The Expanse), Star Trek’s original Chekov Walter Koenig, and many more Sci-Fi luminaries; the score for the contemporary Sci-Fi drama feature film SIMPLE CREATURE starring Russell Hodgkinson (Z-Nation) and the supernatural western SIX GUN SAVIOR starring Eric Roberts (Expendables), Martin Kove (The Karate Kid) and guest starring Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager). Charles-Henri grew up in the French Côte d’Azur, a stone’s throw from the Cannes Film Festival. Son of a colonel in the French army and diplomat for the French government, his parents’ activity led him to live in various places around the world, including four years in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the last year of which was during the first Gulf War. He spent seven years in a 12th-century Knight Templar castle in Southwest France, the dungeon of which harbored the last species of giant bats in Europe. It’s in this setting that Charles-Henri’s passion for creating music started. At first, using digital keyboards available at home, his dedication to the craft led him into discovering the world of analog synthesizers used by some of his heroes such as Vangelis and Jean-Michel Jarre.

He often performed live at private events and parties, being the one-man orchestra surrounded by a sea of keyboards and mixing consoles. His music was always inspired by his favorite TV shows, films, and video games, which led him to go yet into another realm of composition: orchestral music. He fell in love with the power produced by a large ensemble of musicians and became a master at merging seamlessly his first love of MOOG-type analog synthesis with the organic and acoustic sound of a symphonic orchestra.

He studied at the renowned private film school ESRA Nice Côte d’Azur, in Nice, France. He holds a Master’s degree in sound engineering, sound design, music & film production, and business from the Institut Supérieure des Techniques du Son (Higher Institute of Sound Techniques).

Charles-Henri was also taught all the various aspects of filmmaking, getting to work with cameras. For more information, click on BIO.
