Flint Juventino Beppe and music – an inseparable entity
Composing and creative art is a lifestyle for Flint Juventino Beppe (b.1973). As long as he can remember, music has occupied his mind.
He started creating music in his childhood: everything from songs, electroacoustic music to orchestral works.
As per 2016, Beppe's catalogue of works comprises about 200 titles, more than 80 opuses, including commissions and works for piano, flute, clarinet, violin, viola, cello, double bass, string orchestra and orchestral works like flute concertos, piano concertos and symphonic poems. Beppe also writes ballet music, electroacoustic music, film soundtracks, songs and lyrics.
He has contributed as composer on several albums. Flute Mystery and Remote Galaxy (2L) were Grammy-nominated in 2010 and 2015, and feature conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy, Emily Beynon, Mark van de Wiel, Ralph Rousseau and Philharmonia Orchestra.
Other artists he has worked with include Sir James Galway, Leonard Slatkin and National Symphony Orchestra.
The award-winning documentary Exhaling Music tells of Beppe's intense and life-threatening breach with religion when he was 17. His childhood religion could never follow him into adulthood. Having no specific political preferences, Beppe has nevertheless always felt powerful liberalistic undertones occupying his mind: an esteem for individual freedom permeating all his art. Hence, Beppe is constantly dreaming of a world without religions and violating politics.
Beppe is composer, scriptwriter, director and producer for the music and art film production Symbiophonies, having directed the films Montagna con Forza and Vicino alla Montagna.
