Composer, Producer, Artist – How do you define yourself?

I live a life of music a day at the time. Feel very fortunate for the fact that the 3 titles above came to a perfect blend based on achievements and great opportunities throughout my career.

As a composer, I write for film, tv and concert and consider it my primary field of work.

As a Producer, I utilize my skills from all the years making music on all my scoring work and when in between film scores use those very same skills to produce talent in my studio.

As an Artist, I work on expressing my passion whether it’s based on an image, subject or feeling to the best of my ability. On my solo works I find the most freedom of expression, since I’m in full control. The primary idea is to bring people into the universe that roams inside my mind.

Awards and Professional Highlights-

2008 – Winner – Park City Film Music Festival – Best Score on a Feature Film – (Al Qarem)

2008 – Nominated – Film and TV Music Awards – Hollywood – Best Score on a Short Film (The Angel ) – “Lost” to Michael Giachinno…

2007 – Winner – Park City Film Music Festival – Best Score on a Short Film
(The Angel)

2004 – Winner – Skymedia Awards – Best music on a multimedia work – (Una estoria Verdadera – Scored for the New York Yellow Spanish Yellow Pages )

How long working as professional?

Since 1980 as a music producer – Since 2001 as a full time Film Composer

What was your best professional experience?

Several, but to name a couple Spending 3 days being mentored in Orchestration by dear friend Scott Smaley at his ranch in California – Winning the Park City 2008 Awards for best score among 30 other nominated scores.

Worst?

A few as well, but one worth mentioning was having a 3 day 60 piece orchestral session in Prague canceled over the greed of a studio exec.

What instruments do you play?

Guitar(Electric – Acoustic – Classical ) , Bass, Keyboards, Mandolin, Banjo, Ukelele, Duduk, Oud, Saz, Doumbek, Lap steel, Pan flute, Native Indian Flute, Piccolo flute, Turkish Ney, Jaw Harp, Brazilian Berimbau, Brazilian Cuica, Tar drum as well as a number of percussion instruments.
I’m still shopping for more and going about learning them so this list will keep growing…

What do you think is the future of music and media as a business?

I pray for a renaissance. There are too many injustices towards composers for film and other artistic directions. There is too much corporate control without sensibility towards the music industry and I am a firm believer that that’s what brought it to the poor sad state we find it right now.

An art?

It’s uncertain. I pray that the creative freedom and respect that are increasingly being degraded by the media and corporate worlds are rescued back to an art form that was once respected and admired.

Music cannot be a commodity for anyone. People need to understand and link the “talent factor” back to the musician and systematically weed out impostors who are slowly but surely destroying something that otherwise is one of the most important artistic aspects of mankind.

Who are your heroes?

My Father, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky, Djivan Gasparyan, John Paul II, Mother Theresa of Calcutta, Mahatma Ghandi, Vlad Tepish the II (a.k.a. Dracula ), Oscar Schindler, Dalai Lama.

Musical influences?

Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Villa Lobos, Puccini, Vivaldi, Bernard Hermann, Wojsiech Killar, Jerry Goldsmith, Alan Silvestri, Danny Elfman, Djivan Gasparyan, Hossein Alizadeh, Mercan Dede, Ennia, Enigma, Gypsy Kings, Pink Floyd, Nacao Zumbi, Raul Seixas, Sepultura, NIN, Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Young Gods

Other influences?

Not believing solely on influences. Being yourself. Creating trends rather than following them.

What’s a surprising, little known fact about you?

Considering life an art form. One to be lived with the highest praise. A blend of art and one’s inner self connection with the Universe.  Believing that spirituality is just as important if not more than all of the things in the material world.
