Carlo Siliotto is a Golden Globe nominated composer who was born in Rome. He studied guitar and violin prior to studying composition at the Conservatory of Frosinone, under the guidance of Meastro Daniele Paris.
Carlo has composed music for over 70 films with such directors as Carlo Carlei (Italy & USA), Maurizio Nichetti and Carlo Lizzani (Italy), Clive Donner (England & Germany), Robert Markowitz, Roger Young and Joseph Sargent (USA), and Carlos Saura Medrano (Spain). He was nominated in the category of ‘Best Original Score – Motion Picture’ at the 2007 Golden Globe Awards for his score to ‘Nomad: The Warrior’.
Carlo collaborated with Director/Writer Cherien Dabis to create the score for her Sundance feature, ‘May In The Summer’. Since then, Carlo has scored ‘Instructions Not Included’, directed by and starring Eugenio Derbez, and more recently, ‘Miracles From Heaven’, starring Jennifer Garner.
He was also a founding member of the group “Canzoniere del Lazio” for which he adapted both pop and traditional Italian music, creating a new sound out of tradition, mixing languages and instruments of rock, jazz and classical music with the elements of ethnic music, an area in which he is considered an expert.
Carlo has worked as a composer, orchestrator, violinist and producer with many Italian artists including Santo e Zappa, Domenico Modugno, Francesco de Gregori and Enzo Gragnaniello. He has also composed for symphonic orchestra ‘Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte Montepulciano’ and managed ancient music for several ensembles.
