Born in Granada, Spain, Pedro 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. He fell in love with Bach and Beethoven, and later discovered John Williams, Alberto Iglesias, John Corigliano, Ennio Morricone, Alexandre Desplat, Danielpour, 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 Emmy-winning composer 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

 

During 2020, Pedro worked with some of the best studio orchestras in Europe, collaborated on 5 feature films, a TV 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.

 

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

 

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. He frequently travels to Madrid and Beijing for specific projects.
