Italian composer Francesco Berta joins me this week to talk about his views on how social media steals your time, how he learned to compose as a self-taught musician, and his approach to composition.
Francesco was originally self-taught, but through meticulous study has learned how to create gorgeous hybrid-orchestral pieces drawing on his electronic and ambient background.
He is also a director, so has an interesting view on music in film and also on the role and responsibilities of the composer. We discuss how perhaps composers should view themselves more as filmmakers, rather than musicians.
