Francesco Cardone / Bio

I am a modern music composer. I have found my own stylistic code inside the hybridization between the most characteristic aspects from contemporary symphonic music and the innumerable inspirations from oriental music.
I was born on 18/07/1971 in Rionero in Vulture (PZ) and I'm living in Bologna (Italy).
I began my musical journey by studying electric bass at the age of eighteen. I found deep pleasure in music and musical research through the first experience in the genre of progressive rock psychedelic.
My first album "Shadow's sound", played with the group Mahatma in the 1993, got an editorial awards from magazines such as Rock Hard and Metal Shock.
A second job with the Mahatma was produced in 1994 under the title "Velvet Sun"

In the early nineties I moved to Bologna to attend university at the Faculty of Arts Music department. The study of harmony led me to a passion for composition and orchestration. I studied in deep the field of aesthetics graduating with a thesis entitled “Martin Heidegger and the problem of a work of art: the question of hermeneutics” and I specialized earning a second degree in Philosophy with a thesis on “Nihilism téchne and poetry in the thought of Emanuele Severino”.
I released my first album in 2009 "Retu", produced and edited by Jasango, a nascent company. I, also, released the composition and orchestration of a promotional video for the website of the "Teatro Comunale Ferdinando Bibiena" and the soundtrack of a musical cartoon: Big Buck Bunny.
In 2010 I was a finalist in the competition Roma Soundtrack Competition: http://www.musicaearte.it/rsc2010.html
I am currently participating in several international competitions in music composition and I am building a channel on You Tube in which to deposit the soundtracks for home videos and to show the quality of the music I produced step by step.
At last, I am currently studying composition with the teacher and composer Antonio Giacometti.
