“The Appearance of Things” is an intricate ensemble drama set in contemporary
Los Angeles revolving around an avant-garde production of Oscar Wilde’s Salome
where women exclusively play all of the central roles.

The director of the production casted an appropriately gorgeous starlet, Madeline
Chereau, to play Salome, even though to date she has shown very limited acting
ability in a handful of slasher films. His choice for Salome has angered his long
time girlfriend to whom he gave the least attractive role, Herodias. To play Herod,
the director hired his cousin whose husband is funding the production. Coincidentally, the husband also directed one of the slasher movie in which Madeline played.

One day, Madeline allows her boyfriend to discover that she is being unfaithful. This
is the first in a serie of rash and willful actions which set off a chain of events
resembling the action of Salome, and soon the relationship between all of those
involved in the production begins to mirror the ancient themes and conflicts of the original


"...This is great writing! Great composer! No question about it!..."
- Christopher Young, composer (Spiderman 3, Ghost Rider, The Grudge 1 & 2, Runaway Jury, The Core, Shipping News, Hellraiser, Entrapment, Jennifer 8,...)

"...In explaining its decision, the Jury observed that,"In the movie God''s Waiting List, the music is employed with an exceptional subtlety, so that it is not only used as an ornament, but plays an intrinsic and major role in the movie. Vincent Gillioz showed a great flexibility to adapt his skill to the demand of the images. Audacious and skillful, he ventured down different stylistic paths and showed himself capable of covering a broad musical range. Gillioz''s music is as much flexible as touching. It is an excellent painting of the environment, without artifice, true and modern in its musicality. In brief, his artwork demonstrates great inspiration and extraordinary creativity." The jury also praised the exceptional professionalism of his composition..."
- The Jury of the SUISA Prize, 58th Locarno International Film Music Festival


Vincent Gillioz was born in the French speaking city of Geneva, Switzerland. He grew up playing guitar in heavy metal bands. Refining his musical education, he moved on to Jazz at Berklee College of Music in Boston, earning a dual bachelor''s degree - summa cum laude - in Film Scoring & Performance (Guitar). Then, he studied composition and orchestration at the Geneva Conservatory of Music, Here he was awarded Highest Distinctions; the first in his curriculum to receive such an honor in 15 years.

A recipient of many scholarships, Vincent was the only composer recommended by Golden Globe nominee Christopher Young for the 2002 Sundance Institute, where he had the opportunity to work under the supervision of noted film composers Edward Shearmur (Sky Captain & The World Of Tomorrow), Rolfe Kent (Sideways), George S. Clinton (Austin Power ''s Trilogy), Mark Isham (Crash), and Thomas Newman (American Beauty), among others. Since then Vincent has been working without pause, scoring more than 32 feature length movies in the last 5 years, winning two years in a row the Gold Medal for his scores at The Park City Film Music Festival (Sonata, Living With Uncle Ray), being awarded the SUISA Prize for Best Score (God''s Waiting List) at the 58th Locarno International Film Festival, and the Moondance Columbine award at the Moondance International Film Festival for his score to Pray For Morning, while two of his other scores, L''Ecart and The Appearance of Things, made it to the semi-final of the competition. His rapid success has been the subject of two documentaries.
