Argentine-born composer and violinist, Nicolas Repetto, enjoys an active career in the Los Angeles film music community. Nicolas fuses ideas using orchestral and exotic instruments, creative processing, and electronic techniques to create edgy, dramatic, and, most importantly, memorable music for all his clients.
Most recently, Nicolas was selected to participate in the 2016 ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis (composer for Stephen King’s IT) where 12 composer participants are selected among 300 applicants, to study among A-List composers such as Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newman, John Powell, among others, as well as with film music agents, music executives and film music industry leaders.
Nicolas also composed music for Debris (Escombros) for director Mary-Lyn Chambers which screened at the 2016 Festival de Cannes as part of the Emerging Filmmaker Showcase. Other select film credits include the award-winning films Can’t, For Family’s Sake, and Ode In Blood (which was nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award and won a Global Music Award). Nicolas was also selected for the Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival where musicians from the Helix Collective performed Nicolas’ original score to Miranda.
On television, Nicolas’ music can be heard on the TLC network, on Univision’s Amas de Casas Deseperadas (Desperate Housewives on Spanish television), and on various TV advertisements and jingles for the Beber Silverstein Group.
He has also written custom trailer music for Harry Lennix’s (NBC’s The Blacklist, Man of Steel) feature film, H4, which will have its premiere later this year.
Nicolas honed his film scoring skills and techniques at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Programunder Emmy-winning composer, Hummie Mann (Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Dracula Dead and Loving It). Since moving to Los Angeles in 2012, Nicolas has been accepted into the esteemed Society of Composers and Lyricists Mentorship Program, the Christopher Young Tilden House Residency Program for Film Scoring, and has also been featured on ASCAP’s Composer Spotlight.
He also assists composers, Penka Kouneva (Transformers: VG, Woman Astronaut) and Cliff Eidelman (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) with additional music and orchestration on various media and concert music projects.
Equally comfortable in the concert music world, Nicolas has written music for the South Florida Youth Symphony, Greater Miami Youth Symphony, and orchestrations/arrangements for the Alhambra Orchestra in Coconut Grove. His chamber music has been performed in and around California, Florida, and Washington.
