We hear you;
we guide you

Communication professionals are rarely confronted to sonic identities projects. It is a tricky task that may come only once across someone’s career. More than anything, it requires guidance, a strong expertise and good advice.  

We always keep our curiosity high and our ears open. We understand your brand, your audience and the stakes involved. We love being proactive, bringing our enthusiasm and creative energy to each project and into your strategy.  

Allegro vivace! 

We make sounds
that make sense

Perrine Philippe (communication and branding expert) and François Castello (music composer and producer) are the founding managers of Dissonances.  

Their duo is the perfect association of strategic reflection and music creation, which constitutes a unique expertise as well as the agency’s strength and originality.  

This combination gave birth to acclaimed sonic identities. They were proven both relevant and impactful by market research companies, due to their record-breaking attribution, affection and engagement rates.  


Hear it from our clients

We are a little agency that is quick to respond, creative and sharp. We stay at your side during the whole process and remain fully involved in the project.  

This close relationship with our clients is essential to our strategic and creative approach, as it allows us to fully understand their needs.  

The biggest brands, companies and institutions make no mistake about it: TotalEnergies, ArianeGroup, Altice, French Ministry of Education or Natixis, just to mention a few.  

We create emotion

Our team is amazing. Those who compose, produce, perform and play our sonic identities come from the entertainment and music industries. They know how to build a real proximity with an audience.  

They composed movie scores, songs and successful musicals. They toured with the biggest French music stars and recorded the most beautiful albums. They are high-level rockers, DJs, music conductors, beatmakers, composers and virtuosi, with complementary backgrounds and sensibilities.  

Having success and entertaining crowds is a real job. At Dissonances, we think that brands deserve this kind of craft.  

Our sonic identities are critically acclaimed

Dissonances was the first music agency to ever get a design award at the TOP/COM ceremony, one of the most important branding competitions in France. This award went to our creation for the French Federation of Cardiology, which evokes the movement and tempo of a heart massage.  

TotalEnergies' super-efficient sonic identity also got a silver award, as did our creation for the French national health care fund in 2021.  

In 2019, Dissonances received a gold award, both at the TOP/COM ceremony and the Stratégies du Design ceremony for the remarkable identity of the French Ministry of Education – one of our greatest hits.  

Our sound gets
you renown

Dissonances leaves nothing to chance. The quality of our sound is an absolute priority. Our office includes recording studios for creative, mixing and mastering purposes, designed by sound lovers for sound lovers. 

Those are true sound workshops filled with legendary microphones, iconic ‘80s synths and an amazing collection of vintage guitars. 

Dissonances’ recording studios combine the best of the classic gear with the latest technologies: this is one of the secrets behind our sound.
