Thierry Jousse grew up near Nantes in the 1960s. After studying literature, he moved to Paris. In 1988, he started writing for Cahiers du Cinéma. He became editor-in-chief of this magazine in 1991. In 1996, he left the editor-in-chief of Cahiers du Cinéma and began directing short films, before tackling feature films. At the same time, he wrote about music for the Inrockuptibles.
After directing his first feature film, Les Invisibles (2005), he joined France Musique where he produced and hosted several programmes, including Cinéma Song (2011-2015), then Ciné Tempo, broadcast every Saturday on France Musique. During these years, he published several books on cinema, including several monographs (John Cassavetes, David Lynch, Wong Kar-wai) and a collection of texts (Pendant les Travaux, le Cinéma reste ouvert). Since 2012, he has been a regular contributor to the Blow up/Arte website, in the form of carte blanche articles on music in cinema.
