Composer, Audio Director and Lecturer based in West London.
Fernando’s work is defined by his extensive experience performing modern genres, from Fusion Jazz to Bossa and Pop. His compositions for media often feature a blend of orchestral textures with sensibilities from contrasting musical traditions. In his scores, acoustic ensembles often live next to hand-crafted electronic instruments in a mixture of textures and genres.
As a performing musician, Fernando has played with artists from Warner Music Spain, such as James Blunt, Nek and Blas Cantó. He has toured Jazz and Pop ensembles and played with Bossa Nova pioneer Jayme Marques. As an arranger and orchestrator, he was a member of The Malasaña Big Band and has worked for ensembles ranging from small jazz groups to ten-piece wedding bands. In 2014 he published his first collection of songs, BIG SUR, recorded and composed in New Mexico, USA.
He studied Jazz Performance and Composition in Madrid at Música Creativa School of Jazz and obtained a Master’s in Composition for Film and Television from the London College of Music.
He regularly visits Kingston University London as a guest lecturer on Narrative and Sound Design for Videogames. He took part in organizing the sound and architecture festival Efímera: Microfestival de paisajes reactivos (2019).
