Steeve’s formative years were focused on classical music before transitioning, as a teenager, to the inevitable appeal of Rock, Alternative, Pop & Funk. Playing the piano, guitar, bass and a bit of drums Steeve’s passion for music grew deeper as he started developing a keen interest for traditional music from La Reunion and folk music from around the world. Consequently he started to acquire a variety of exotic instruments and percussions from Africa, Asia and Europe and learnt their mechanics, sounds and culture implications as he went along.
After studying physics at Uni, Steeve decided to leave his native Reunion Island in 2001 for a bigger island “Australia” and pursue his musical dreams, graduating with a degree in music production in 2003. Fresh out of school he started his own commercial recording studio in Sydney with a fellow classmate and slowly made his way up in the industry.
After many years producing, song writing and engineering for other people, whilst working as a freelance sound mixer and sound designer for film and tv, it has become clear that his skills and passion are best suited for the field of music composition for film and television. Writing music for picture has proven to be the most fulfilling experience Steeve has had as a musician as it has allowed him to combine his love for instrumental music, film and technology together in one.
