About

What do I do?

I compose music for audiovisual works, sometimes directly on film, sometimes not; but always in order to fit both the content and my co-workers' will at the highest level of accuracy. This implies deep commitment and constant dialog.
My curiosity is insatiable and my musical world is broad enough to reunite serious music from any time, folklore music from any place, and pretty much anything that descend from the Blues.

My compositions are performed by the Orchestre-Machine, which I conduct with a mouse and a couple of keyboards serving as a baton. However, nothing would please me more than having them played by one or several actual human beings. If you happen to fit this description, don't hesitate over asking me for some scores: I'll be glad to provide them.

Who am I?

I was already fond of music at the moment of my first memory. Still, I remain ignorant of what the inside of a music school might look like, and the only teaching I ever recieved came from recordings, books and scores.

In some way it is a liability, in some other way it is an asset. I was never shown any shortcut, nor was I ever formatted, so much that I am unable to take the easy way out and use an impersonal and obvious language. My music is fragile, it is shy, its themes are fleeting and its silences are impatiently sighing. I spend all my resources trying to transcribe my feelings and my wandering thoughts into a musical language that would be at the same time sincere and accessible — genuinely giving.

That being said, the best way to get an answer to the title-question is most likely to scroll back to the previous section and listen to some of my pieces... or even better: to work with me on one of your projects.

Side project

In 2021 I teamed up with my old fellow Shimyo, for the first time in almost ten years. We took the name AbstraktS (which starts with a capital "A" as in Antoine Portes and ends with a capital "S" as in Shimyo) and released the album The B-side of the Earth in early 2022.
You will find it in the above, but if you seek more detailed informations, please visit AbstraktS' dedicated web page.
