Tristan Capacchione

Handsome Devil

His music has been heard at film festivals all over Canada and the world, including the NYC Doc festival (New York), Dok Leipzig (Germany), Monstra Animation Festival (Portugal), the Animpact Animation Festival (South Korea), WorldFest Houston (U.S.A.), and more! Montreal-based composer Tristan Capacchione’s scores have helped films gain international recognition with awards like the Gold Remi for Best Comedic Feature (WorldFest Houston), Best Short Short (Bradford Animation Festival, UK), and a special mention at the prestigious Ottawa International Animation Festival.

Drawing inspiration from his background as a trumpet player in orchestras, jazz bands, and funk bands, Tristan uses these experiences to his advantage. His styles range from orchestral to jazz and from 8-bit to bluegrass. His approach to scoring follows a simple rule of “responding” to the picture rather “explaining” it. In this manner he finds the right balance of supporting the scene without being melodramatic or cliché.

What directors are saying!
