RIOPY is a London based French pianist and composer whose self-titled debut album was released last year. His compositions have been featured in movie trailers and feature films with recent compositions featured in trailers for Oscar-winning films such as The Danish Girl and The Shape of Water.
Born and raised in the French countryside, RIOPY began to teach himself the piano at an early age when he discovered an abandoned instrument. Without access to printed scores, he began to compose music in his head. His international career began when he moved to London at the age of 21. His unique, rhythmically-driven approach to performing his own compositions soon brought him to the attention of the piano firm Steinway & Sons, which named RIOPY a Young Steinway Artist.
He has performed at the Royal Opera House, Steinway Hall as well as a unique performance from inside the clock tower in St Pancras, London.
RIOPY’s music has been featured in film trailers for The Shape of Water, The Danish Girl, Mr Turner, Jimmy’s Hall, A Royal Night Out and The Sense of an Ending, amongst others. His piano works have also been heard in documentaries broadcast on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, as well as in advertising campaigns for Peugeot, Armani, Bentley, Samsung, Mercedes, Ikea and more.
