CEO & Music Supervisor, Creaminal
A graduate of school of Jazz and Paris Dauphine, Clement Souchier founded the label Madame Je Vous Aime (MJVA) in 1998. Alongside his recording activities, his passion for movies/pictures led him to turn to music for picture. He composed music for films and adverts. In parallel to these activities, he set up a start-up in 2000: Soundicate.com, the first smart radio in France. Arrived too soon on a not yet mature market, Soundicate failed to turn a profit and its partners decided to shut the company down at the end of 2001. Since 2002 and given that the Soundicate experience helped to build a large network within the music industry (labels, publishers, artists), Clement decided to gather independent artists and labels to provide a global offer of music for pictures (production, timing, musical supervision). This activity took shape as Creaminal, which defines itself as an independent agency of music for picture. The idea quickly attracted adverstising professionals and feature films directors and producers.
