Nicolas Delépine doesn’t shy away from deep beats and sound synthesis. He is very sensitive to melodies and tension curves. One of his strengths is to think within melodies and give them a certain eloquence. It results in a captivating reflection of the story being told.
“Nicolas has a strong ear and an excellent knowledge of the indie/pop sound of the moment. He senses very well where a band wants to go and joins them without losing sight of his own vision.”
– Jo Geboers, singer & songwriter Low Land Home
THE SNOWBALL EFFECT
Even though Nicolas has an analytical mind, he has an intuitive way of working. Like the surrealist painter Magritte who was inspired by his first brushstrokes, Nicolas likes to start with an intuitive timbre or sound. From there, the music develops naturally. His radar for happy accidents is always on. He finds it important to only use his theoretical knowledge as a box of tricks for when he gets stuck.
For Studio 100’s television show GameKeepers Nicolas did the arrangement, vocal recordings and mixing.
DID YOU KNOW?
Besides having 2 mother tongues (French & Dutch), Nicolas can speak Luxembourgish. After finishing his studies, Nicolas moved to Luxembourg to work for Linster Studios, a studio specialised in dubbing and children’s films. So next time you see Nicolas, tell him “Moien, wéi geet et?” to ask how he’s doing.
