For you and for your ears:
“Without music to decorate it, time is a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.” Frank Zappa
What about decorating it together?
Here’s something I can do for you
If you need some good music for a concert, do not hesitate to contact me here. I will create for you a performance with effects and soundscapes, and, within the limits of possibility, with lights and videos. An emotional live show capable of telling lots of stories, make your soul vibrate and let your mind wander. You have my word
“How can I learn to play the piano not knowing music notation? How to make music accompaniment while I’m singing? How to create orchestra sounds just by using a computer? How to make electronic music?”
These are some of the questions I will try to answer for you. After more than 18 years of academic experience, I got the diploma both in piano and composition, and the degree in Electronic Music - audiovisual. But what I am now is mostly the result of my personal research. What I would like to do now is to transmit this to you as well, in particular what teachers in class never talk about.
- Music history
- Ear training
- Improvisation and modern piano
- Piano accompaniment for modern music singers
- Music theory
- Music producing/arrangement
- Classical piano (from beginners to advanced)
- Basic electroacoustic
- Digital processing (programs such as Logic Pro X, Sibelius, Ableton, etc.)
Lessons will be via Skype in the case that I’m abroad.
“Do you play for events too, like a “function band”?” Yes. Weddings, award ceremonies, concerts, different kind of events: if you need a pianist/ jukebox who plays for you, click here. From standard jazz to covers of songs (popular or not), from classical music to improvisation on request. If piano is not enough for you, ask to my second personality
“Could you write for us a piece like we know you can?” Absolutely. I can write for you music ad hoc for your project or a forthcoming event.
“Can I play your music too?” It would be an honor! You can request arrangements and scores of my music to play it by yourself or in a concert.
“And what about that famous music? Can you arrange it for us?” Yes! You can request arrangements and scores of your favorite songs and compositions to play them whenever and wherever you want. For example, I recently adapted a soundtrack theme for a four-voices choir.
Do you need a soundtrack for videos/movies/documentaries/short-films/plays? You are in the right place. My teacher, Maestro Luis Bacalov, used to say: “Music should always be in the service of images.” I still keep following this approach. My aim is to combine contemporaneity and modernity with traditionalism, and who knows... one day I might win an Academy Award for Best soundtrack, as he did. So, when do we start working together?
Do you need a producer with original ideas for a song you have in mind? Since I have a growing passion for electronic and “modern” music, I’m producing and experimenting it for years. I like to mix it with pop, funk, jazz, ambient, rock, orchestra, etc. Once you have your project revised, I can put you in contact with the right practitioners for possible recordings, mixes and masters.
Do you find that song “empty” and you would like to arrange it? And that other song is superabundant of sounds and you want to make it simpler? Do you already have your piece of music but you are not entirely satisfied with the way it sounds? Click here, I can help you. Once you have your project revised, I can put you in contact with the right practitioners for your recordings, mix and master.
I consider the greatest sonic detail a fundamental element for a film, a video or just a composition to be successful. To create percussion sounds from household utensils, to fuse natural sounds together, to give birth to pads starting from a few voices recorded for example by cell phone; these are some examples of the sound design I love doing. Everything around us is music.
