“she is an artist in command of her craft, in possession of a prodigious imagination.”
— Maestro Perry So
THÉRÈSE CHAIX is an award-winning composer who builds bespoke sonic worlds for creatives, brands, & films.
Chaix’s fascination with the power of storytelling to transform our view of the world and bring people together blossomed into a life-long passion while spending a childhood creating worlds with words, colors, and music in Northern California. A classically trained pianist and cellist from the age of three, Thérèse began composing at the age of nine and received her education in music composition in Zurich, Switzerland and New York City. With her music, Chaix forges complex sonic environments encompassing deep emotional breadth, timbral saturation and architectural precision rendering the familiar strange and the strange beautiful. The inspiration she draws from nature, poetry, visual art, and her French, Swedish, Spanish and Filipina roots come together to form her distinct compositional aesthetic. Above all, Chaix composes music as a vehicle for empathy and catharsis by creating experiences and telling stories in a universal language that traverse and translate the emotions that define what it means to be human.
