Born in Antwerp, Belgium.

Guy Cuyvers is considered one of the most versatile musical talents in Europe. As a classical guitar player he has been acclaimed by Angel Romero and the international press unanimously praises his film scores.

His first composition for large symphonic orchestra was performed in the U.S. when he was only 18. At that time he was studying music as an exchange student in Florida. Upon his return to Belgium he majored in music at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Music in Antwerp. In 1983 Guy Cuyvers was awarded a graduate assistantship by The American University in Washington, D.C. The Master of Arts program he followed supplemented his training in guitar, advanced composition, orchestra conducting and musical arts management. His compositions are mostly written for chamber music, choir, guitar, musical and band.

In 1995 his career as a film composer knew a successful start with the American production Sea Fever. This first film score led to a commission to write the music for the international co-production Into The Rising Sun, broadcasted worldwide. The soundtrack was recorded with The Flemish Radio Orchestra and Choir and released by PolyGram. The recording of Sea Power followed a year later with the same orchestra, resulting in the release of the Sea Suites cd. Guy wrote also the music for Setting Sail, a four-part international television series on maritime history. Recording was scheduled in November 2001, again with his favourite orchestra.
