I studied classical composition and orchestration in the school of the italian composer B. Bettinelli.
I’m influenced at the same time by the great masters of the '900 and by the passion for the Hollywood soundtracks: most of my music is orchestral or orchestral-hybrid, with rich harmonies and counterpoints but always with great attention to the melody and the expressive feeling of the music.
Sultry New age Lounge instrumental with a smokey, jazzy feel. A rich backing of organ pads, picked guitar, electric bass and rimshot drumbeat support the muted trumpet solo which takes centre stage. Meandering loosely throughout the piece, it has a downtempo, chilled, and slightly ambiguous vibe as if uncertain of its next step, creating a sense of melancholy and a journey into the unknown.
Skittish Dixieland jazz track, featuring all the usual players and a lead xylophone. A swinging drumbeat, bouncing double bass line, accentuated offbeat piano rhythms, solid brass ensemble - it's all here with an animated melody and really playful feel that perfectly enhances upbeat comedy and cartoon scenes.
Enchanting orchestral epic. Magical and mysterious in its gently flowing piano lines and shimmering high strings, it builds on the theme with faster string ostinato and legato melodies, gradually turning into a deeper, more epic interpretation with added brass, woodwind and percussion. Without limiting yourself to the fantasy genre as it works for many other situations, think more 'fairies and elves showing their powers' than 'horsemen of the apocalypse'.
A tense action epic. The title may be a bit misleading if you're expecting the classic John Williams score, but there's certainly dramatic tension and plenty of big screen atmosphere. Accentuated off-beat rhythms using percussion and strings, raspy brass swells and enhancing woodwinds all contribute to an edgy, pointed piece with a dark and sinister side.
Mystical, orchestral epic, with an ethereal quality. Soothing choir and lush strings and pads start us off, with rich brass swelling to a gently pulsing section of strings and woodwinds as it builds to a more epic finale of fanfare brass and timpani rolls. No stand out melodies, but an overall feel of wonder and enlightenment in a gentle and majestic setting.
Quirky upbeat mix of synth based EDM - think New Order meets hard house. And then add a heavily reverbed whistled melody on top, and let loose the 80s tones through the arpeggiator. Fun, slightly tongue-in-cheek, and definitely banging, if not barking.
