Born in Granada, Spain, Pedro was raised in a musical and cultural mix with a father who loved movies, Jazz, and the great symphonists, and a mother who sang songs and played guitar in the house since he was a baby.

 

At age 3, he started singing in the school choir and later picked up the violin at age 6 and piano at age 7. He started improvising and composing in his free time and soon joined the Granada Professional Conservatory.

 

He quickly fell in love with Bach and Beethoven, and scores like the one to The Nightmare Before Christmas, and later discovered Alberto Iglesias, Ennio Morricone, Stravinsky John Barry, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Quincy Jones, Alexandre Desplat, and other composers who would become his heroes.

 

His piano professor would often get mad at him when he played "fake" Beethoven and switched the melodies and chords to make the music happy, sad, or scary. Music became about being playful and about communicating emotions. When he discovered being a composer who writes music for films was a job, he decided he no longer wanted to be an engineer.

 

He got his start at age 16 when he began assisting Spanish composers, and 2 years later he got a scholarship to study Film Scoring, Conducting, and Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, 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.

 

After a few years, 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, 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 Emmy-winning composer Lucas Vidal on the Netflix hit show ELITE. During his last year in school, he got the opportunity to write additional music for the Academy Award-nominated film Klaus (2019), the most ambitious animation feature film Netflix has ever made, making history as the youngest Berklee student to work on the music for an Oscar-nominated film.

He graduated Summa Cum Laude in December 2019 and by February he had worked on 3 feature films as co-composer and on James Bond 007: No Time to Die as an orchestrator. He is grateful to mentors like Oscar Senen, Carlos Martin, and Alfonso Aguilar for trusting him so early in his career and becoming friends.

 

In 2020, Pedro worked with some of the best studio orchestras in Europe, collaborated on several feature films, 2 video games, a TV show, and a TV series for Amazon Prime Video. After that, the world locked down and he was bored for a bit, so he used the opportunity to write a lot of concert music.

 

Besides the films he has worked on, he has worked on songs for multiplatinum artists like David Broza and Manu Carrasco and stars like Zara Larsson. His concert music has been commissioned in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, and Spain.

 

He is currently based in Los Angeles, where he continues his studies with Grammy-Award-winning composer Richard Danielpour –one of the most gifted and sought-after composers of his generation– and composes music for concert commissions and film and game projects.
