Florent Athenosy grew up in Paris started music at a very early age. After classical guitar studies he began educating himself in various styles of music and started playing with a wide range of bands and working as a studio musician. As his interest in both composition and jazz developed, he went on to study at the Berklee College of Music where he earned a degree in composition. While attending the college, he managed to balance his traditional composition studies by immersing himself into music technology learning and developing his skills both in sound design and in computer based composition. He then moved to New York and started working as a composer in various settings from Ballet music to commercials and jingles as well as short movies and TV shows. It was then time to go home. He moved back to Paris and has since been working with various TV channels, directors, advertising companies as well as chamber music groups. He remains active on the New York Jazz scene as part of the band SOTL (https://www.sotl-theband.com).
