Sandro Morales-Santoro is an award-winning Venezuelan composer based in Los Angeles, CA who specializes in film, TV, Interactive and New Media music.
Sandro's sensibility as a composer is evidenced in his lush orchestral scores, always infused with hints of his diverse upbringing and culture. His eclectic style is the consequence of his development as a musician, going from pop and rock bands, to a classical music education, to jazz and electronic influences from his studies in the US.
A filmmaker at heart, Sandro’s scores show a very sensitive approach, dramatically analyzing every scene to capture all of the nuances and complexities of the story and imagery, always eager to help realize the Director’s vision and to be an asset to the storytelling.
Sandro graduated summa cum laude at Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2009, and since then has developed a prolific career as a composer in Los Angeles. He’s a recipient of the Berklee Achievement Scholarship; his scores have been nominated for the prestigious Hollywood Music in Media Awards, the Changing Face International Film Festival, The New York/Istanbul Short Film Festival and the Care Awards, and has received the Best Score Awards at the Luminous Frames Film Festival, Queen Palm Film Festival and the Hollywood Gold Awards.
