Born in Granada, Spain, he was raised in a musical and cultural mix with a father who loved Cinema, Jazz, and the great symphonists and a mother who loved music and sang and played guitar for him since he was a baby.

 

At age 3, he started singing in a choir and later picked up the violin at age 6, and piano at age 7, while improvising and composing in his free time. He soon joined the Granada Professional Conservatory, where he fell in love with Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin, and later discovered John Williams, Alberto Iglesias, John Corigliano, Ennio Morricone, Alexandre Desplat, and other composers who would become his heroes. His piano professor would often get mad at Pedro when instead of reading the music, he would play "fake" Chopin/Beethoven, playing his own version of the music instead of reading the original.

 

He got his start at age 16 when he started orchestrating for Spanish film composer Carlos Martín. 2 years later he moved to Boston to study Film Scoring, Conducting and Composition at Berklee College of Music where he was the President of the Society of Composers, taught music technology and held the position of Assistant Conductor of the Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra.

 

In 2018, Pedro won the most prestigious award given by the Berklee Film Scoring department –the George Delerue Award. He was awarded an Honorable Mention by MTNA competition in 2017, a Special Mention for "Most Remarkable Musician" at the IBLA Grand Prize, and the Rick Applin Award for outstanding achievement in fugue composition. Thanks to the Wachter Fellowship, he lived in Los Angeles during the summer of 2018, where he worked for Lucas Vidal.

 

He graduated Summa Cum Laude in December 2019 and by February had scored 2 feature films as co-composer and orchestrated part of James Bond 007: No Time to Die (music by Hans Zimmer).

 

Pedro has since then worked on 5 feature films, a Netflix show, and a TV series for Amazon Prime Video. He has also scored several short films and documentaries and arranged for multiplatinum pop stars like David Broza. His concert music has been commissioned in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, and Spain.

 

He is currently based in Los Angeles but travels frequently to Madrid and Beijing for specific projects.

 

His most recent projects include Klaus (2019), the most ambitious animation feature film Netflix has ever made, nominated to an Academy Award, where he was an additional composer.
