Pedro is a multifarious composer who skirts the line between conventional tonality and absolute musical madness. His pieces range from modernist symphonies to offbeat pop instrumentals and synthesize forms, literary devices, pseudotonality, Surrealism, jazz and the baroque under one bizarre mantle.
A former child prodigy from a multicultural background, Pedro releases new music nearly daily. When not trying out new ideas or tickling the ivories, he runs a recording studio/publishing house under the Bernardez Media banner.
Artists he's worked with include Alfredo Rugeles, Alfredo Ovalles, Daniel Certain, David Bohn, Diana Arismendi, Daniel Belardinelli, Francisco Burgos-Goizueta, Francisco Peraza, Jaysin Voxx, Jon Sloan, Marielba Losada de Itriago, Mir Wave, Pierre Nemoff, Seven James, Vladimir Podgoretsky, William Goldstein and Yael Farache.
In addition, he studied with Abraham Abreu, Alejandro Slobodianik, Alexandros Kalogeras, Adina Izarra, Armand Qualliotine, Benjamin Boren, Diana Arismendi, Esther Pietri, Francine Trester, James Smith, John Bavicchi, Kathryn Wright, Laurent Lécuyer, Ray Santisi, Rebecca Cline, Robert Drasnin, Stephanie Tiernan and Thom Sharp.
He blazed through Berklee College of Music's five-year Composition/Film Scoring double major Degree program in two years and a half as a Dean's List student, taking 20 classes in one semester at one point. The came a Masters in Composition at Universidad Simón Bolívar, a Film Scoring Certificate from UCLA Extension and a Specialist Certificate in Desktop Music Production from BerkleeMusic.com.
He currently focuses on expanding his catalogue, licensing tracks, seeking new compositional opportunities, running his studio, and occasionally talking about himself in the third person.
