Alexandre Côté is an LA based film and game composer, originally from Massachusetts. After graduating Berklee College of Music at the top of his class, Côté began his career working for acclaimed composer Penka Kouneva, co-composing many pieces with her, and contributing synths and percussion to her 2nd album, The Woman Astronaut. A year later, Côté began working for BAFTA-winner Abel Korzeniowski, where he had the opportunity to work on several high profile projects, including Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals, and New Line Cinema’s The Nun.
Since then, Côté has been working in games, providing music for many projects with game audio company Somatone Interactive, including WB’s Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery and Harry Potter, Wizard’s Unite. In addition, Côté's music has been trusted by many other developers, such as Jam City, Wildlife Studios, GSN Games, Beyond Games, The Pokémon Company International, and many more.
Currently, Côté is composing several short films, and is about to release his first soundtrack album for the short film Forget Me Not. In addition, he worked again with Korzeniowski on the upcoming film The Courier, set to premiere in 2020, and is currently working with him on an upcoming TV series.
My score to the short film Forget Me Not will be available early May on all streaming platforms! Recorded this past January at Clearlake Recording Studios, I worked with a string quintet and pianist to bring the music to life, and I couldn't be more thrilled to share it with all of you. Huge thank you to all the players and the entire music team for making it a success. Hope you enjoy, and thanks for listening.
"Forget Me Not is a film that will always have a special place in my heart. It's dedicated to my late Grandfather, and it's the first film I ever really felt like a Director. To come back all these years later and have a composer as talented as Alex say he wants to write a full original score and record it using live performers was beyond any of my expectations. Hearing the music live for the first time was like watching the film take it's first breaths. Forget Me Not was fine before, even with the stock music, but what Alex and the musicians were able to capture... it's like a hug from my grandfather. A memory of a warm laugh. The film just feels alive now... and I'll never be able to express how thankful I am to them for giving me that."
I'd love to hear from you!
