Podcast - The Power of Classical Music: Cédric Baravaglio

Published on 4 May 2021

Our first guest is Cédric Baravaglio, 37 years old, a great gamer (World of Warcraft, Age of Empires II, Zelda), he became a composer of music for video games (Diablo IV, Legends of Runeterra, Wolcen, Hogwarts Legacy, etc.) and successful movie trailers (Star Wars IX, Dumbo, The Incredibles 2, Aladdin, Avatar, Batman, etc.), as a perfect self-taught person. With his sidekick Jean-Gabriel Raynaud, they created Unique Horns Studios.

Very early on, Cédric realised the importance of music in his life. In video games, it amplifies emotions, tells a parallel story, opens the world of fantasy. For his compositions, Cédric explains what were his sources of inspiration. The result is a musical creation based on the vocabulary of classical music!

The interview between Mischa Damev and Cédric Baravaglio takes place at the Château de Chillon, the emblematic concert venue of the Septembre Musical Montreux-Vevey festival, whose next edition will be held from 18 to 30 September 2021.
