Jean-Baptiste de Laubier, aka Para One, is a multi-faceted artist with too many skills for classification.
Starting out as a producer, first in hip hop then in electronic music through his own music label Marble, Para One branched out early on to create his own solo albums Epiphanie, Passion and Club. Para One has produced for various artists such as Birdy Nam Nam and more recently Meryem Aboulouafa’s debut album. His work has been recognized in the movie industry through the writing of several original soundtracks, notably for French director Celine Sciamma, whose Portrait of a Lady on Fire received Best Scenario at Cannes Films Festival 2019 and 11 nominations at the Cesars 2020. He is also director and producer of his own numerous short movies.
His last album Machines of Loving Grace is also the soundtrack to his first motion picture Sanity, Madness and The Family. The two pieces offer a more complete work, both exploring the roots to his artistic creation.
