Felipe Téllez, raised in Cali, Colombia, is a composer of orchestral, film, television and video game music. He draws from his knowledge of classical forms, and mixes that with popular music and contemporary scoring techniques.
After studying an undergraduate degree in music production and composition at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, he went to Valencia, Spain, where he completed his master’s degree in Scoring for Film, Television and Video Games at Berklee College of Music, Valencia Campus, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
He is currently employed as Fellow for the Scoring for Film, Television and Video Games faculty of Berklee Valencia. He has scored a number of projects, as well as done the sound design for the indie video game “Soul Brothers” and for the Colombian feature film “Malos Días.” His orchestral works have been performed by the Bogotá Philharmonic Orchestra and the Colombian Symphonic Orchestra.
In Valencia, he has devoted himself to his Fellowship project, which has been to bring classical conservatory students to the world of contemporary film scoring and studio work by getting young students from the conservatories of Valencia to experience being session musicians in Berklee’s installations.
He stays true to his roots and has recently completed his symphonic poem “Nocturno,” inspired by the Colombian poet José Asunción Silva. He composed and conducted this project at Abbey Road Studios, London.
Among his other projects are the scores for “Margot Learns French” and “Saudade,” recorded at Budapest’s Studio 22 with the Budapest Art Orchestra, featuring soprano Kristina Bijelic.
His collaborations with directors and animators in the UK, Spain and Colombia, as well as artists from Budapest, Valencia, London and Toronto have created compelling stories, with soundtracks and sound design of the highest standards. He continually strives to improve his craft, and brings a unique palette of sound to all his projects.
