Pedro Irusta
Composer / Film Producer

Film scores

I have been composing music for media, feature films and shorts since 2007. My goal as a composer is to merge sound and vision to create lasting cinematic memories through music.
I enjoy adapting my music to the needs of the story being told: be it arrangements for orchestra, electronic music or rock & pop, I always search for the composition, instrumentation that helps to tell the story.
I work closely with the Director to understand what is being told, going through a process in which even the smallest of sounds can be examined in relation to the whole being built.

"The cutting is also a key element that helps build up a constant sense of dread and foreboding, something reinforced by the score of Pedro Irusta, with its drone-like sounds and frequent use of percussion."- Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter

Artistic innovation prize

"(...) The Hitchcockian suspense is well maintained and underpinned by a striking score" - San Francisco International Film Festival

"Announcing its suspense-ratcheting intentions with a score that makes Bernard Herrmann (Hitchcock's composer) sound downright dainty by comparison (...)" - Peter Debruge, Variety

"Absent (...) would be commercially dismissable, were it not for the edgy mixing job and hyped-up soundtrack that together create a sense of artificial excitement." - Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter


Film production

As a producer, this is my aim: to be the best liaison possible between the artistic needs of a filmmaker with the pragmatic reality that is necessary to make them possible.
My first major work as a film producer was with Marco Berger’s 2013 film “Hawaii”. I organized a successful Kickstarter.com campaign to raise the funding for the film. Hawaii was distributed internationally by Media Luna New Films and the distribution rights were sold in the US, UK, France, German speaking territories, Puerto Rico and Honduras amongst other territories.
I am a young producer, interested in adapting the traditional production rules to suit the needs to meet the reality of today’s modern film industry, which is being constantly redefined in the last decade with the onslaught of the internet and new technologies.
I had experience working in every area of film production (sound, sound post production, composing, camera, visual post production, directing, acting...) so I can emphathize with every crew member.
Right now, I'm co-producing Marco Berger's next film: "Dos Elefantes".
