Nightbreeder & The Wintermoon Orchestra / Bio

The project “Nightbreeder” was born in the summer 2000 when I began writing my first novel.
I had already been a pianist and a student of classical music for four years: my first orchestral compositions were all inspired by what I wrote. The Queen have always been my favorite group.
I have always been fascinated by heavy metal in all its forms, classical music and soundtracks, specially by what is hidden in their creative philosophy.
Describing images, people and situations of a film or a book only through music is something I have always found very stimulating. Entering the nature of a story, catching its essence and trying to describe it in all its forms, handing down feelings and moods only through musical instruments without any words have always fascinated me a lot.
Over the years, I go on writing more and more seriously and “The Mysteries of Gordon Pym's Island” become a series of novels; then, after ten years’ study of the piano and principles of orchestration, the idea of making a symphonic Concept takes shape: it would become the soundtrack of the novel.
“Nightbreeder” was born officially in 2006. After a sample that year, I spend two years working on my project and in 2009 I make my first official cd: “The Dawn of The Dark Age” that is inspired by the prelude of the novel's series “The Mysteries of Gordon Pym's Island”.
