Biography

Andrea was born on the 8th of January 1981 in Milan and he died on 8th January 1881 although he is often reborn (it depends on the time).

At the age of 8 he realized that his great ambition was to compose musical scores for film. In August 2010 he put that goal into action.

Since 1999, Andrea has worked as a scriptwriter in various genres such as fantasy/narrative, horror films, as well as situational comedy episodes (Comici in Fabula, Almost West) working together with Giovanna Senatore. They are owners of the brand Media Aetas (www.mediaaetas.com).

He draws inspiration from his subconscious via his dreams or nightmares and then translates them for the audience. Like the stories he creates, his music originates from another dimension; one in which he feels compelled to further explore.

Andrea Casagrande is also a Score Composer member of IMRO (IRISH MUSIC RIGHTS ORGANISATION LIMITED EAGRAS UM CHEARTA CHEOLTA) and Full Member of IFTA (Irish Film & Television Academy).
