Khaled Mouzanar is a Lebanese musician. His music has gained much popularity since he composed the soundtrack for Nadine Labaki’s Caramel. His musical style melds Arabic music (ney, kanun, violin, and percussion) with classical and tango influences, He has compose numerous music films (Beirut After Shave, Sekkar Banet, Caramel) before embarking in 2007 in writing his first solo album, “Champs Arides “.
Mouzanar started music very young alongside the great Armenian composer, Boghos Gelalian. Like many of his friends are fond of the cinema and make films, he composed the music and he learns to link sounds and pictures.
His musical influences are so intimately related to the 7th art, since, although he grew up listening to the compositions of Bach, he readily admits having had a real shock artistic immersing himself airs of Strauss in the film by Stanley Kubrick “l’Odyssé de l’ espace. ” His inspiration is so tinged with Western trends despite the frequent use of typical instruments of Lebanon, especially in the city where he composes his music, Beirut.
To live his passion for music, he began working for advertising clips. His first professional experience outside the pub turns out to be a short film by Hany Tamba “After Shave”, whose music was nominated for the festival of Lutin Short Film. This is an opportunity for him to make his first teeth, while revealing his method as a composer for films. He works his themes, not images, but once assembled directly from the script.
Mouzanar will then rub with a feature film with director Nadine Labaki, in the film “Caramel.” His work takes as its basic Italian melodies (Morricone, Rota) as well as Lebanese Fairuz. His compositions also flirts with the tango through a thorough analysis of Astor Piazzolla, a composer who saw to make the tango universal and classic.
Finally comes the time of his solo album, entitled “Champs arides”, written in French and edited by Naïve. For this opus, Mouzanar states won by allowing himself to the influences of folk, “song writing” and, inevitably, paid tribute to singers such as Gainsbourg. He said also inspired by the city of Paris. For him, “Paris is literature, cinema. Paris is a kind of fantasy.However, Paris does not inspire him when it is actually far from it, since it is in Beirut that he composes his songs
