This was a key step in the adventure. The news came in May 2018 that I was admitted to the Berklee College of Music, on the Valencia campus in Spain, in their Master of Music – Scoring for Film Television and Video Games.
This was big, and moments of great excitement came along with times of panic and anxiety. Whatever, I left, and for a whole year, between September 2018 and July 2019, I’ve got access to an extraordinary film scoring program and I’ve met as extraordinary people from all over the world. Friendships that were made there are amazingly enriching.
During this program, we had the chance to be able to record our music several times with top musicians, including this time with a Brass Quintet, recorded in November 2018 in the Aula Magistral of the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, the Opera of Valencia. It came out of an exercise designed to make us illustrate the concept of a film taking place during the Second World War: a terrible massacre has just happened in a french village, and a young girl escapes from the killing, only survivor from these Fire Flowers (Fleurs de Feu) that have slaughtered her family and friends.
