About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I started to create music back in the 90s using a primitive midi software. Music and Information Technology have, since then, sculptured my life.
Today my time is split between being an IT freelancer and a composer.
My musical studies kicked-off with guitar and piano lessons; very early I started to write my music and focus more on composition and orchestration techniques.
Since then I had the pleasure to study with three respectful composers: Giovanni D'Aquila (Palermo), Adriano Guarnieri (Bologna) and Luc Brewaeys (Bruxelles).
Together we explored both the classical and contemporary composing approaches. My personal composing style can be described as a mix of both paradigms with a continuous reminiscence of my early classical influences from composers like Chopin and Debussy. My top three inspiring composers are Ennio Morricone, Goffredo Petrassi and Igor Stravinsky.
