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 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 fell in love with Bach and Beethoven, and later discovered John Williams, Alberto Iglesias, John Corigliano, Ennio Morricone, Alexandre Desplat, Richard Danielpour, and other composers who would become his heroes. His piano professor would often get mad at him when he played "fake" Beethoven, playing his own version of the music instead of reading the original, and switching melodies and chords. For Pedro, music was always about being playful and about communicating emotions.
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.
After not getting much sleep for three years, 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, 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. 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 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.
In 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. After that, the world locked down and he was a bit bored for a while, but he wrote a lot of concert music.
Pedro has also scored many short films and documentaries, and arranged for multiplatinum artists like David Broza, 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. He frequently travels to Madrid and Beijing for specific projects.
