About /À propos

JS Williams has played an important role in music both in Montreal and internationally with his remarkable work as a composer, guitarist and musician.  As a film composer he has worked on different shorts, feature films and ads. Amongst his influences are Mika Levi and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Like them, he likes to push the boundariesof what music can do, by challenging the traditions and experimenting. Williams sees the score as one of the characters, inseparable from the visual and often blurs the line between sound design and film music composition. In 2019 he was nominated for best original song at the Academy Screen Awards for the film “Sashinka”.

 

As a guitar player, his unique talent has led him to work with acclaimed artists such as Elisapie, Yannick Rieu, Térez Montcalm, Alejandra Ribera, Socalled and others. In 2019 Williams released his first album From a Plane which was recorded with Rob Heaney (Patrick Watson, Barr Brothers) and has been nominated for best debut album at the Independant Music Awards.

Compositeur, guitariste et musicien, JS Williams fait partie du paysage musical local et international depuis plus de 20 ans. En tant que compositeur de musique de film, il a travaillé sur divers courts métrages, longs métrages et publicités. Parmi ses influences figurent Mika Levi et Jóhann Jóhannsson. Comme eux, il aime pousser les limites de ce que la musique peut faire, en expérimentant et en défiant les traditions. Williams voit la musique de film comme l’un des personnages, inséparable du visuel. Sa musique est souvent à la frontière entre la conception sonore et la composition de la musique de film.

 

En tant que musicien, il a accompagné des interprètes acclamés par la critique tels que, Yannick Rieu, Térez Montcalm, Alejandra. Ribera, Socalled, Zale Seck, Elisapie et beaucoup d’autres. En 2019 il a sorti son premier album, “From A plane”, enregistré avec l’aide de Rob Heaney (Patrick Watson, Barr Brothers) et il a été nominé pour meilleur premier album aux Indepentent Music Awards.
