Bio

Dillon Baldassero is an LA based composer, producer and sound artist from Toronto, Canada. He has composed for projects of various mediums, with feature works premiering at festivals such as the Toronto International Film Festival (Mary Goes Round, Black Cop), SXSW (Rules for Werewolves starring Finn Wolfhard), Fantastic Fest (Girl starring Mickey Rourke and Bella Thorne) as well as Cannes (Looking is the Original Sin). He was recently awarded the grand jury prize by SOCAN for his work on Dan Slater's 'The Family'.

 

Though initially trained in orchestral composition, Dillon's work weaves together acoustic, classical sounds with found instruments, experimental performance techniques and electronic soundscapes. He works to create an emotional and thematic arc in his music that, first and foremost, communicate and enhance a narrative. Using music to shape a viewer's psychological perspective in order to translate human stories is where Dillon's strength and passions lie. 

 

Dillon is an alumni of the Canadian Film Centre’s Slaight Music Residency, chaired by Mychael Danna, and studied orchestration through Berklee College of Music.

 

He is represented by Larissa Giroux at OAZ Management.
