Music has accompanied me since my childhood. At the age of 15 I was already on stage as a professional live musician and from then on I travelled around the world, stood with great artists on big stages worldwide and since then, I have lived and played from 80s pop-rock to hip-hop, techno and soul to today's modern film music.
I am a professional artist and have worked as a music producer and composer for over 30 years. I have developed a real passion for music that has stayed with me all this time.
I am involved in various music/film/music clip productions and work as a composer, sound designer and audio engineer. I compose and mix different types of music in my studio, which I have been running for over 25 years. My interests and experience lie in the production of TV documentaries, films, trailers, advertising music and chart music with all its facets. In music production I have worked closely with national and international artists and agencies.
Working with many artists, broadcasters, film companies and directors around the world, I have gained a lot of experience in different cultural music styles, learning how to record and produce these styles and instruments, as well as working with large orchestras. I work and develop different musical directions, combining them with extraordinary instrumental styles and genres that fit into both today's and tomorrow's music styles.
A composer is always confronted with the question of how to cross the supposed boundaries between musical styles and directions in order to create new sounds and atmospheres that enrich the story with energy and emotion.
The possibilities of an orchestrator are immense
My hybrid style of composition, combining classical orchestrations with vintage synthesizers and modern sound design, offers endless possibilities for atmospheres that you can't even imagine until you hear them. My goal is and always has been to exceed the requirements of the director or producer.
Music is a playground of infinity.
During the silent era, films music is provided by each individual theater, either by phonograph or as performed live by flesh-and-blood musicians. But! Once the ability to synchronize music and sound to celluloid becomes possible in 1929, music quickly becomes an integral aspect of the storytelling process. Suddenly, composers are commissioned by Hollywood to write new material especially for the movies. A new profession is born.
The possibility to compose with a Piano using music as a tool to communicate with the world was destined to create a powerful soundtrack.
And it’s in a key, which reinforces the uncertainty and longing in the music. The melody and accompaniment together breathe and yearn for love and resolution, echoing the plot of the story
My work with musicians and artists from all over the world, with all their exotic instruments, gives the composition the energy, the emotion, the feeling that every story needs. We don't even realise how many musical genres there are in the world. Imagine also how your story or film would sound and look with this power.
The human imagination is infinite
Soundtracks have always been an important part of films, from soothing orchestral melodies to popular songs to rock 'n' roll classics. Even silent films had soundtracks. Today, that tradition continues. Almost every mainstream film released contains some form of music. More recently, however, filmmakers have also drawn inspiration from the past. Many modern films include songs from the 1960s to the 1980s. Sometimes they do this to bring a historical era to life. Sometimes, however, they do it simply because the song fit. While this may upset some older fans, it helps introduce great songs to a wider audience.
Today's way of composing modern hybrid music (a combination of synthesizers, sound design and real orchestra) is to adapt film music to the times in order to appeal to both young and older generations.
Music expresses that which cannot be said and
about which it is impossible to remain silent.
