Vicente Avella has been scoring to picture since 1996; when he developed a passion for the art form while taking film music courses at the Eastman School of Music. It was at that point that he realized that his love for both stories and music finds a perfect blend in films. Since then he has done extensive work in this field, having delivered scores to a number of award winning films and animations. Film credits include: The Hall of Past Lives, The First Thing You Loose, Aguasanta’s Fall, Alarm, Saudis in America, Scapegoat, Cross Pollination, The Shell, Bibbily Bobbily Job, The Diestmobile, Outdone, Up the Tree, A Night Less Ordinary and A Spring Day. Commercial and industrial credits include: Turning Stone Casino and Greater Rochester Visitors Association.
He holds a B.M. in Piano Performance from Indiana University and a M.M. in Composition from the Eastman School of Music. In 2005 he was one of the participants for the NYU/ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop where he worked under the supervision of composers Mark Snow (X-Files, Crazy in Alabama), Ira Newborn (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles) and orchestrator Sonny Kompanek (Hollywoodland, The Big Lebowski). Originally from Venezuela, Vicente resides in Los Angeles, California where he is currently working on the Fox shows Family Guy and American Dad as a composer assistant to Ron Jones.
