With 12 years of experience as a composer and orchestrator, Bruno Valenti is emerging as one of the most respected young composers of music for film, TV and digital media, having worked with both established and emerging talents throughout the industry. Valenti studied both orchestration and film scoring at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, along with advanced studies of scoring techniques and orchestral conducting at UCLA. In addition, Valenti continued studying orchestration at the Film Music Institute with veteran orchestrator Steven Scott Smalley (ROBOCOP, BATMAN, JUDGE DREDD, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, among others).
Valenti has composed outstanding music for projects that are as diverse as the mediums they were produced for: the romantic indie comedy MAC DADDY AND THE LOVERS, and the popular Canadian action/adventure web series THE PROTECTOR CHRONICLES and ONE HIT DIE. In addition to creating music for those projects, Valenti has orchestrated/assisted on acclaimed film composer Christopher Young’s scores for the upcoming comedy TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA CHRISTMAS, and GODS BEHAVING BADLY with Christopher Walken, Sharon Stone and Alicia Silverstone.
A talented musician and composer, Valenti is adept in many different styles of film scoring - from lighthearted comedy, to emotional drama, gripping suspense, and terrifying horror. His versatility as a composer and his distinctive original approach to film music is on full display through each of his current and past projects, which have given him the opportunity to work with some of the industry’s best and most talented filmmakers including Spencer Estabrooks (creator of the popular web series THE PROTECTOR CHRONICLES and ONE HIT DIE), and Dominique Keller (producer/director of the 2011 short film THE INTERROGATION). All of them have high praise for Valenti’s talent and professionalism, and especially of the exemplary working relationships they shared and enjoyed on their projects.
“I saw Bruno’s work and some samples of his work online, and I was immediately struck by the powerful emotions that Bruno was able to bring out through his music, as well as how well he managed his music in both the feel and tempo of past pieces.”
Dominique Keller (Producer/Director of the short film THE INTERROGATION)
“I had the pleasure of working with Bruno on my last two short films. Bruno did an amazing job. He gets themes, and how they apply to make music more cinematic. It was great to work with him. He did an awesome job, and I’d recommend him anytime.”
Spencer Estabrooks (Producer/Director, THE PROTECTOR CHRONICLES, ONE HIT DIE)
“I have had the distinct privilege of working with Bruno Valenti. He’s a very professional, talented composer and arranger. He’s a great guy, very easy to work with, and I can’t wait to work with him in the future.”
Briana Cash (Award-winning singer/songwriter)
“I was fortunate to meet Bruno Valenti a few months ago. When I came upon a project that needed some musical expertise, I called upon him. He did a wonderful job for me. It was a select piece of music, and he did a great job. I really appreciate his help.”

“The most important thing is musicality. Again, you can find theorists everywhere, and not all of them have a musical ear or melodic sense. In Bruno, you find professionalism, timely work, easy to work with, a great listener. He’s a great guy, but also incredibly musical and a giant talent.”
Keven Jordan (Producer, Juno Award winner)
Bruno Valenti’s outstanding original music instantly enhanced the works of these artists. His distinct style, talent and professionalism can enhance your next project as well.
