Flint Juventino Beppe

I have officially changed my name.
Nothing can come out of nothing. Consequences cannot come out of nothing.

Sometimes, a natural consequence will manifest itself as a name change, as it did for me. There is no drama connected to this decision; it has been on my mind ever since I was a child.

My first name Flint is a name that I closely associate with nature; a prime source of inspiration. It also has an old English meaning: a person living near a stream. I think Flint has a very nice sound quality, and the simplicity of the name makes it compelling.

My middle name Juventino has Latin origin and means one who represents youth. I sincerely believe that the character of the name Juventino suits me as a person and the music I create.

My last name Beppe is the pet name I invented for my grandfather when I was a child. I was extremely closely connected to him. When he died in 1997, I immediately wrote «About my Grandfather» Op.37 to honour his memory, hence Beppe is a very natural choice for me: it is in my blood, so to speak.

This name change is for personal and artistic reasons only. I am a composer, so why shouldn't I compose my own name? Other than what is stated here, I have no further comments.

Sincerely,

Flint Juventino Beppe
