Alberto Sueri is an Italian-born composer and sound designer specialised in Film/Tv based in the UK.
He started his way into music playing drums in various bands of different genres reaching the dream of entering into the Abbey Road Studios with his band. After many years of drumming, the passion for audio technology brought Alberto to study Electronic Music and New Sound Technology at the Conservatory V. Bellini in Palermo where he graduated with first degree honour cum laude (110/110 cum laude).
During those years at the Conservatory, the study of the classical music of the past and the experimental music of the present gave him a fine balance and very wide music knowledge covering topics from harmony and piece analysis to electronic sampling and synthesis.
He undertook music courses such as composition, musical reading and other computer music courses such as electro-acoustic, sampling, synthesis and digital sound processing with the support of various software (Max/Msp, Csound, Cubase, Logic Pro X, Sibelius, etc.).
In those years spent recording and manipulating sounds, creating synthetic sounds, composing music with both traditional and electronic instruments, Alberto’s interest in audio/music experimentation grew, to the point of not wanting to limit himself to only a few styles or genres.
He therefore decided to go further, and became interested in how this music could apply to Cinema, a passion that he has always had.
From the strong belief that music can reach its best level of expression when applied to other arts, in 2015 Alberto moved to the UK to study Composition for Screen at the University of Edinburgh, driven by the desire to specialise in the wide field of music and digital arts, particularly in music composition, the application of music and sound to videos and images, creation of sound effects and sound design for films/TV/commercials.
In 2018, after graduating in Scotland, he got an apprenticeship with Danish Grammy Award winner composer Halfdan E Nielsen and Rasmus Christensen, so he moved to Copenhagen for three months. Here he learnt more about writing for orchestra, music research for directors/producers and how the professional film industry works.
In 2016, his electroacoustic piece Cycle in Circle got nominated at the Ivan Juritz Prize at the London King’s College.
In May 2018 Alberto went to the Festival de Cannes participating with the short documentary Nights Out that he sound designed. In June of the same year, he participated in the Edinburgh International Film Festival with three short films, one of which won the New Visions Award.
