Franco Esteve was born in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, and had a multicultural upbringing throughout the United States and Europe. This multicultural upbringing led to his adoption of the concept of everywhere and nowhere for his views of life, origin, and culture. The same has applied to his professional life as well, covering a multitude of disciplines, feeding his thirst for knowledge and expression.

As a child he developed in music and piano, and also as an actor, acting in local commercials and theater, later developing in other areas of production, photography, design, and film. He’s fully bilingual in English and Spanish, and has a working knowledge of Catalan, as well as a degree in psychology. He has produced and directed commercials and music videos, but is best known for his work with The Doll Chronicles series of short films, particularly Consequence, The Doll Chronicles, which he produced and directed. He also composed the music for the series, for which he has received accolades.

Though his work is more focused on scoring for films, and he has a special love for the genre, he’s never thought of himself as tied down to it. He finds all genres have great music, and loves to explore them all. On a single playlist, he might jump from Nine Inch Nails to Beethoven to Snoop Dogg to Led Zeppelin to The Ink Spots to John Barry to She Wants Revenge. Mostly he expresses himself as seeking beauty and expressing it, no matter the art form.

PRESS RELEASE

NEW MODERN CLASSICAL MUSIC SINGLE CAPTURES AUDIENCES BEYOND GENRE

 

Franco Esteve’s Single, “The Wait” is Story Driven Classical Pop!

 

Cala Ratjada, Baleares, Spain - July 7th, 2017: A new, modern, story driven, classical music single called “The Wait” by Franco Esteve, has just been released. This single, which is already drawing large audiences has also begun to receive rave reviews by those who know quality music when they hear and see one.

 

Franco Esteve, multi-disciplinary artist and composer, is known to create music with a film focused, story-driven approach that both penetrates the soul, and touches the humanity of his listeners. His brand of music captivates his listeners and audiences, as it evokes universal emotions in them while taking them on the journey of the story. “The Wait” is a unique creation by this rare gem of a composer, who is carving a particular niche for himself, innovating within the genre.

 

Recently, a Music Review Magazine, Jamsphere Magazine, had said the following about Franco Esteve: “To say his music is cinematic is all too obvious and Esteve’s ability to create simple and emotive musical narratives is a rare gift to be admired...Esteve’s music has a universal appeal that will attract audiences of many cultures and musical tastes." This is a genuine and unbiased attestation to this music icon’s ingenuity in creating world-class music that has quickly driven praise and popularity beyond the genre.

Another Music Magazine reviewer, Tunedloud, has this to say of this innovative composer:  "Esteve surprised me with his concise musical narrative that draws influences from neoclassical, minimalist and contemporary classical and traditional styles." You can listen to “The Wait,” and find more information at CDBaby. It is also available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and on all the main music streaming services and online stores. Please visit The Wait at Bandcamp https://francoesteve.bandcamp.com/track/the-wait

 

Here is what Franco Esteve says of his creative musical compositions: "For me, composing music is a process of exploration, which is why I’m so drawn to it. There are so many places to visit and explore and express. A lot of my music is composed as an expression of my short films, like soundtracks, as a live entity within a story. Sometimes, the music gets drawn from life itself."

 

“The Wait,” is a classical style, story-driven piece of music that reflects waiting and anticipation, characteristic of humanity – that of unrealized longing for the satisfaction that remains elusive. It got written out of insomnia and the permanent incapacity to sleep. Esteve here recreates something he struggled with throughout his life. He drew a lot of ideas that flowed from those hours he fought to fall asleep but could not. “The Wait” is a direct product of that anxious waiting for sleep to come, while time ticked away, without the realization of that expectation – a realization that as the time ticked away, it became apparent that sleep would not come.

 

These moments were reflected by Esteve's employment of varying orchestral elements in the creation of “The Wait” - a great creative attempt with the violin’s pizzicato ticking away, as other elements creep in,” and “the mind races in the darkness."
