Life and career

Bource first studied music at a conservatory in Brittany, moving afterwards to the Centre d'Informations Musicales (CIM), in Paris, where he studied Jazz music. Bource began his career composing music for commercials, but later moved on to short films, such as, En attendant (2000), Spartacus (2003), and Sirene Song (2005). After working on the Michel Hazanavicius film Mes amis, Bource has become a long-time collaborator with the director. He has since scored such Hazanavicius films as OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006), its sequel OSS 117: Lost in Rio (2009), and most recently the black-and-white silent film The Artist (2011). The latter, recorded with award-winning Brussels Philharmonic, elevated Bource to international fame and earned him numerous accolades, including a César Award, a Golden Globe, and an Oscar.[4] He was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in June 2012 along with 175 other individuals.[5]
