Music Tells A Story
Jorge Alonso Maldonado began as a jazz piano player at an early age before becoming a composer. He was part of the Peruvian band "Big Pollo Funk" and toured Peru playing original funk and hip-hop tunes.
His passion for composition arose while enjoying Brazilian rhythms, which are present in many of his early works. He experimented by transferring his rhythmical ideas to visual works which led him to study film and video game scoring at the Berklee College of Music.
With an extensive contemporary musical background, Jorge Alonso manages to do a magnificent job finding catchy melodies and building solid rhythms which enrich the personality of the visual character.
