About Paolo

Son of dancers and choreographers José Greco and Nana Lorca, brother of contemporary composer Jose-Luis Greco, and nephew of NY-Metropolitan opera singer Norina Greco, Paolo Greco grew up surrounded by music. After some years of classical training, he is sent off to visit his brother who introduced him into the world of music technology.

Paolo Greco holds a BA in Music from The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, and an MA in Music & Media Technology from Trinity College Dublin. His thesis was titled ‘The Communicative Power of Silence: the cinema of David Lynch’. While in Dublin, he worked for October Eleven Pictures in their preternatural documentary ‘The Twilight Hour: Visions of Haunted Ireland’, narrated by British actor John Hurt for Discovery Channel.

His music progressively acquires a notably narrative and atmospheric demeanor. He is hired by Die Badische Landesbühne Theater in Germany to write music for their stage productions. Since 2007, he has scored ten shows ranging from the American icon 'A Streetcar Named Desire' by Tennessee Williams to the German classics 'Michael Kohlhaas' by Heinrich Von Kleist and 'Mary Stuart' by Friederich Schiller. Other more experimental productions were invited and/or awarded at international theater festivals in Berlin, Stuttgart, Trento and Tallinn.

Paolo Greco’s filmography to date includes an array of short films and documentaries produced in Spain, Ireland and Norway, some of which have been included and/or awarded at festivals in Europe, Canada, Mexico and the USA. In 2015, he scores the feature film ‘Backseat Fighter’ by Mario Pagano for Malpaso Producciones (starring Martina García, Homeland TV-series).

His zeal to improve and desire to expand his professional network has brought him to the Film Scoring program at UCLA, thus taking his career yet one step further.
