Hello! I’m João Llano, I’m 24 years old and I’m from Figueira da Foz in Portugal, though I’m currently living in Lisbon.
I have a Master’s degree in Musical Composition at Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa (Lisbon Music University). Despite my inclination towards composition, my instrumental background was in percussion, though I also had a few piano lessons.
I can do original scores, as well as I can do arrangements and transcriptions of other musical works. I use Sibelius for the aforementioned purposes.
I don’t identify myself with one particular musical style. Instead, I can go through several styles at once, regardless of the genre mostly associated with. I often compose hybridly between tonality and atonality, between homophony and counterpoint, between simple and expanded harmonies, between the more conventional and the more experimental.
