Federico Torri is a composer from Firenze, Italy now based in Los Angeles. He started playing the piano at an early age, switching later to electric bass and guitar, but his main focus has always been on composing music. His passion for composition pushed him to learn how to record, mix and produce his own music, aspects which later became an integral part of his work. He loves to combine live instruments and organic sounds with electronic instruments and sound-design.
His ideal music focuses strongly on a refined harmonic language which can be combined with unique simple melodies, soft orchestral textures, avant-garde sounds and electronic beats.
His compositions have been performed by orchestras such as Abu Dhabi’s “NSO Symphony Orchestra”, “Sanremo Symphony Orchestra”, “Arturo Toscanini Philharmonic Orchestra”, “Pomeriggi Musicali di Milano” and “Florence Chamber Orchestra”, with performances on Italian Television and Radio.
In 2014 he was a finalist in the International Film Music Composition Contest “Mario Nascimbene
He also composes and performs with the electronic-music band Lefebo, alongside Marco Ventrice and Giovanni Mazzanti, winning the prize for Best Original Song in the 2014-edition of the Rock Contest Competition.
