Au loin. The miraculous mind. Memories come and go. Some have been faded away for years, decades even, and then they appear. Seemingly out of the blue. Hidden memories from our childhood that nonetheless seem to have shapened us.
French pianist and composer Dorothée Troubat aka Bon Coeur (Lyon) captures the emotions, imagery and poetry of the moment with her piano compositions.
For as long as she can remember, she has been fascinated by the magical link between music and image. Her synesthetic sensory perception, including the association of colours with musical notes and harmonies, fuels her creativity when composing. Drawing inspiration from all forms of artistic expression, including film, literature and painting.
Coming from a family of music passionates where everyone played an instrument, she was immediately fascinated by the piano. She started playing classical piano at the age of 6 and never stopped.
Bon Coeur started composing only a little later. Intuitively in the first place, and then by taking lessons in composition, harmony and orchestration.
Classical music was an important part of her early education and is a major source of inspiration (she is particularly obsessed with Ravel’s Concerto in G, Beethoven’s Apassionata and Bach’s Goldberg variations) as well as cinematic contemporary music like Patrick Watson, Philip Glass, Alexandre Desplat and Yann Tiersen.
