My name is Anibal Alonso and I’m looking for a position as film or video game composer. You can listen to my music at www.cinematicthemes.com.
These are my skills:
• Technical knowledge of composition and orchestration.
• I own and have extensive experience Cubase, Sonar Producer and Avid Pro Tools. I also own the following instruments libraries from EastWest/Quantum Leap: Platinum Symphonic Orchestra, Hollywood Brass, Hollywood Strings, Symphonic Choirs, Goliath, Pianos Gold, Gypsy, Minister of Rock, RA, Silk, Voices of Passion, The Dark Side and Stormdrum 2 Pro. I also have several Vienna Symphonic Instruments and RealGuitar.
• Proficient in computers.
• Ability to organize priorities, schedule resources, and make the best use of time.
• Identification of the emotions and psychological aspects inherent to the characters and mood on a play or a film.
I play guitar and piano. I’m graduated from the University of Puerto Rico on Information Systems and completed many credits in the Department of Music. I took harmony, counterpoint, orchestration, composition, conducting, music history, piano lessons and other music courses.
I sang tenor with three of the most prestigious choral groups in Puerto Rico: San Juan Philharmonic Chorale (one of the choral groups that perform regularly with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra and at the Casals Festival), the Chorus of the University of Puerto Rico, and Camerata Coral. These choral experiences gave me the opportunity of being literally very close to the performance of symphonic instruments during rehearsals and concerts.
I directed a Church’s choral group for 7 years, and I composed many a cappella pieces for that purpose.
I have being a fan of film music for many years and I have a collection of music of more than 500 films, from Miklós Rózsa in the 1930s, to many current composers. This is the kind of music that I love to hear, with which I’m very familiar, about which I have learned many styles, composers and technics.
