Jean-Claude Vannier is a French musician, composer and arranger born 1943 in Courbevoie, France. Vannier has composed music, written lyrics, and produced albums for many singers, most notably Serge Gainsbourg, Francois Hardy and Brigitte Fontaine. Vannier is regarded as an important musician in his native country; music critic Andy Votel noted his Eastern music influences and named him a pop-culture icon of 1970s France, alongside Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin. Vannier collaborated on many film soundtracks including: Les Guichets du Louvre by Michel Mitrani, La Horse by Pierre Granier Deferre, Paris Nous Appartient by Robert Benayoun, Slogan by Pierre Grimblat, Projection Privée by François Leterrier, L'amour Propre by Martin Veyron, La Nuit Tous Les Chats Sont Gris by Gérard Zingg, and Comédie d'été by Daniel Vigne. He staged numerous shows for artists such as Véronique Sanson's show with the Prague Symphonic Orchestra at Paris’ Châtelet Theatre, Jane Birkin at the Olympia, “Children's Opera" (for which he also composed the music) and for the Festival of Avignon. As well as his film scores, Vannier has written and recorded six solo albums. L’enfant assassin des mouches is an instrumental concept album, originally recorded in 1973 but released in 2003, which has achieved cult classic status. Other standout albums include En Public & Fait Maison, Les chemins de Katmandou and the 2003 soundtrack compilation Cannabis / Ce sacré grand-père. Vannier's most recent release was the 2019 album Corpse Flower, a collaboration with heavy metal vocalist Mike Patton.
