Marked by the soundtrack of the film “The Towering Inferno” and sixteen years of “Conservatoir”, his ambition is to compose for film, unite sound and image to produce music of great elegance, in the tradition of Jerry Goldsmith, Michel Magne and Quincy Jones.
In the mid 90s he began to compose for the cinema, television and advertising. From 1994 to 2002, he became conductor and then discovered the world of pop and accompanying Phoenix, and Sébastien Tellier.
Chassol is the author of an unclassifiable masterpiece. His compositions articulate voice, music, sounds and images of objects in visual never seen before. Its remaining project primarily that of ‘Harmonizing the real’. Chassol present early 2013, as part of Bonjour India, a new show : INDIAMORE. Filmed in Calcutta and Varanasi in July 2012, Chassol puts India in the spotlight. It crosses musicians, singers, dancers, but also taxi drivers, fishermen and children: musical encounters unlikely.
