He was a frequent collaborator with animator Piotr Kamler. Besides the two films above, he did the soundtracks for Le Pas and l'Araignéléphant (The Spider Elephant).

I really enjoy his work.

So sad, one of my favourite composers from the 20th century.
In 2008 his L’Oeuvre Musicale 12 CD box set was released and it is a miraculous world to explore.

Odd, I was just thinking about him for no apparent reason a couple of days ago. Maybe the news was on the radio in the background somewhere and I just didn't consciously register it?
