Biography

Olivier Deriviere is a French game and movie composer best known for his work on the Obscure and Alone in the Dark series. He was fascinated by video games during his youth and later became part of the demoscene as a tracker musician. He subsequently studied composition and orchestration at the National Conservatoire in Nice Conservatoire under Jean Louis Luzignant. In 1999, he produced the experimental solo album Harry’s Day, telling the story of a man dying due to a broken heart, and started to write arrangements of film scores for a percussion quartet. He subsequently won a scholarship to study jazz and film scoring at the Berklee College of Music. He spent a whole season with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and even had the honour of interacting with John Williams.

Back in France, Deriviere started to work on film productions. He worked under composers such as Bruno Coulais and Laurent Petitgirard creating additional music for artistically challenging productions. On the side, he scored short films, television shows, and documentaries. He single-handedly created the epic orchestral score for Sans Camion and all the songs for the musical film La Tartine. Other film credits including Tempora, La Solitude, Cub, and The Passenger. He received most attention for his score for the short movie The Toast whose sad love story and supporting score was commemorated at many eminent film festivals.

    Но ведь ост Alone In the Dark написал Philippe Vachey и он не имеет ничего общего с ребутом 2008 года, засуньте себе в жопу свои скобочки и слушайте дальше дженерик оркестровый пердеж из отсосина и масификта. Музыка Remember Me - лучшее что было в этой игре, и что главное, новая ступень развития автора и попытка сделать что-то новое. Но ньюфагам не понять.

    I asked Olivier about the correct spelling of his name on Twitter and he said to forget the accents, so the correct tag is Olivier Deriviere: https://twitter.com/BimboBoy/status/366220023297089536

    Remember Me might just be my favorite score of the year so far, all other types of media included. Absolutely brilliant work.

    Remember Me OST is amazing! [6]. This game had so much potential. If only it had a better combat mechanism and a bit less claustrophobic levels, it could easily be a top contender for goty

    Brilliant soundtrack for Remember Me. Love its blend of orchestra and the unique electronic effects. Brings so much intensity to the in-game fights and a great atmosphere to the various levels, especially the earlier city levels.
