Federico Torri is an Italian composer who works between Los Angeles and Europe. He plays several instruments but his main focus has always been composing. His passion for composition pushed him to learn how to record, mix and produce his own music, aspects which have become 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.
While studying Film Music at USC in Los Angeles, he composed the music for the animation “TWO”, which was a winner at the Student Academy Awards, becoming therefore Oscar-eligible.
His compositions have been performed by orchestras around the world such as Abu Dhabi’s “NSO Symphony Orchestra”, “Sanremo Symphony Orchestra”, “Arturo Toscanini Philharmonic Orchestra”, “Pomeriggi Musicali di Milano” and “Florence Chamber Orchestra”.
In 2014 he was a finalist in the International Film Music Composition Contest “Mario Nascimbene Award”.
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.
