Sebastian Androne-Nakanishi – Happiness

Sebastian Androne-Nakanishi (b. 1989)
Sebastian Androne-Nakanishi is a multi-award-winning composer who writes both contemporary concert music and soundtracks for theater or film. He studied music composition in Romania, Great Britain and France. His music is being performed all around the world by established ensembles and orchestras. He finished his PhD in 2018 at the National University of Music from Bucharest, with Dan Dediu as his doctoral adviser and long-time mentor. At the same institution he taught composition, orchestration and musical forms. Obtaining two Erasmus scholarships, he studied composition with Stefano Gervasoni during his doctoral studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse and with Joe Cutler, Howard Skempton and Ed Bennett during his Masters at the Birmingham Conservatoire. Convinced of the idea that there is always room for improvement, Sebastian Androne-Nakanishi attended in numerous masterclasses lead by important composers such as Mark-Anthony Turnage, Isabel Mundry, Agustín Fernández, Brian Ferneyhough, Richard Ayres, Christopher Fox, Mario Garuti, Laurence Crane, Hanna Kulenty, Errollyn Wallen, Gavin Bryars, Thierry Huillet, Cornel Taranu, Michael Hersch, Gabriel Iranyi, Jörg Widmann, Peter Ruzicka, Adrian Pop, Bernard Cavanna, Miklós Maros, Zygmunt Krauze, Hubert Stuppner, Philip Cashian and Aurel Stroe. In 2018, out of 304 participants from 44 countries, he won the Golden Eye trophy offered by the Zürich Film Festival through its international film music competition for his score for Steve Cutts’ short film „Happiness”. He won over 20 international and national composition awards and prizes among which there is the Tenso Young Composers Award 2015 or the George Enescu Grand Prix, symphonic section.

<<I believe that music requires passion, honesty and a fervent desire to interweave bonds between all of us and all of things, both synchronically and diachronically. My journey is one of self-discovery, the one in which you search for your purest (artistic) volition, for facets of your truth, for better and better ways of expressing yourself (compositionally) and of finding the most accurate means of conveying the „within”. It’s not a journey of originality, but of authenticity. It’s not a search for aural novelty, but for the most candid, eloquent and meaningful musical manifestation. Thus, the self-discovery can become self-creation.>>

„His works are full of youthful energy, written with impeccable professionalism! He succeeds to convey powerful emotions through a diverse and surprising musical language that is always fresh.”
Dan Dediu, composer

„Sebastian Androne is a highly gifted Romanian composer (…) who combines a highly vivid musical imagination with outstanding technical realisation. His music has a huge personality and energy. He creates striking musical structures that communicate clearly and powerfully.”
Joe Cutler, composer and head of the composition department at the Birmingham Conservatoire
