“Carolina is a portuguese composer and a pianist. Born in Albufeira, she started her musical studies at the age of seven, having completed the Complementary Course of Piano at Conservatório Regional do Algarve Maria Campina, in Faro, and her Bachelor in Choir Conducting and Musical Pedagogy, at Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa. Since she was very young, she composed music in her own name, initially writing for piano and strings, and progressively expanding the size and genre of musical groups, these being, for example, mixed choir, symphony orchestra, rock / jazz bands and electronics.
During her degree in Lisbon, she composed original music for video games and other audiovisual formats. That was the moment when she realized that her passion for music in audiovisual media could not be ignored anymore. In the last few years, she has attended multiple workshops in Soundtrack Composition, such as “Summer Scoring Program – The Fundamentals of Scoring For Film and Visual Media” (2016, Varna, Bulgaria), “Hollywood Music Worskhop – Composing for Video Games & Scoring For Documentaries and Independent Films” (2017, Baden, Austria), guided by musicians such as Christopher Young, Miriam Cutler, Cris Velasco, Derek Gleeson, among others. At the end of 2018, she completed her Master’s Degree in Soundtrack Composition and Music for Audiovisual Media, at Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya, Barcelona, under the guidance of Arnau Bataller, Bernat Vivancos and Lluís Vergés.
She has recently debuted in the world of cinema, composing the original soundtrack for the spanish short film “En Tu Piel” (which was also the Final Project of her Master), having recorded with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, in Slovak Radio, in Bratislava.”
