Hi, I'm Angel Elizalde. I Double majored in Classical composition and Songwriting at Berklee College of Music. Through the years I've worked in various movies (started as an assistant composer, and moved up to main composer) and theatre productions in various countries -from U.S.A. to France, to Ecuador, to Canada & Mexico-.
My first movie as a lead composer -after a screening- received additional financial backing and was premiered with a live orchestra to critical acclaim. It was even called the best mexican Film of 2013 by critics.
I was born in Quito-Ecuador and got my musical basis at the Franz Liszt Conservatory. Between my semesters at Berklee, I pursued private instruction in various styles of Composition and Performance, from general Latin Styles (classical too), to Afro Ecuadorian and Classical Andean Styles. This I feel has given my composition skills a broader palette.
I have the privilege of being married to a Film Director that works a lot in Vancouver, and I feel that's given me an insight not only into the director's process, but also a better understanding of how to work more efficiently with one.
I'm always looking for ways to keep productions cost effective without compromising the final product, and will go above and beyond to find ways to give you what you are looking for.
I hope we can work together on many projects, and that regardless you do incredibly well with yours.
All the best,
