A singer, songwriter, film composer, and pianist based in Montréal, Canada, Patrick Watson makes explorative chamber pop with his band–also called Patrick Watson–often blending spare indie pop, synthesizer experiments, cinematic orchestral song, and a melancholy tone. The group's second album, 2006's Close to Paradise, won the Polaris Prize. After composing music for several short films, Watson made his feature-length debut with It's Not Me, I Swear! in 2008. Released in 2015, Love Songs for Robots became his band's fourth straight album to reach Canada's Top Ten, and he found success again in 2019 with the arrival of his sixth long-player, Wave. After Watson went viral with the decade-old single Je Te Laisserai des Mots to the tune of hundreds of millions of streams, he released 2022's Better in the Shade, which drew on literary inspirations – Marcy Donelson, Rovi.

Film Scores for No One is inspired by the instrumental material Patrick Watson has produced over the last five years. Mainly based on modular synthesizers, these original creations will be particularly appreciated live, oscillating between neo-classical dazzle and electronic emotion, accompanied by surprise guests.
