Do you really want to go through yet another old boring Bio? If you save the time it takes to read it and instead listen to one more track, I guarantee you that will be more meaningful than any of the following words! …Still want to read?

I’m a composer from Italy whose style blends late-romantic music conventions with more innovative and contemporary musical idioms, combining soft orchestral textures, avant-garde sound effects and electronic music. I like to compose in a variety of styles ranging from classical to jazz to rock and electronic, because I believe that different musical languages can each help convey different feelings and ideas. My favorite artists are different every week (I just can’t make up my mind!), but I really love (in no particular order): Ravel, Radiohead, Thomas Newman, Stravinsky, Jon Hopkins, Nino Rota, Mahler, The Doors, Apparat, Jeff Beal and most artists in-between.

You’ve made it this far? I guess you really wanted to read it then:
(in case you forgot, my music is still there!)

My compositions have been performed by orchestras such as Abu Dhabi’s NSO Symphony Orchestra, Sanremo Symphony Orchestra, Arturo Toscanini Philharmonic Orchestra, Pomeriggi Musicali in Milan and Florence Chamber Orchestra, with performances on Italian Television and Radio. I also compose and perform with the electronic-music band Lefebo (check that out as well!)

Education:
-Diploma in Electric Bass with top grades (Lizard Academy of Music - Florence, Italy)
-Bachelors in Music Composition with honors (Scuola di Musica di Fiesole - Florence, Italy)
-Specialization Course in Music Composition for Film with Academy Award-winning composer Luis Bacalov (Accademia Chigiana - Siena, Italy)
-Masters in Screen Scoring at USC (but you already know..), where I’ve been awarded the Harry Warren Scholarship (you didn’t know about this though!)

If you like my music please feel free to contact me anytime and I’ll be happy to work with you!
