I am a composer with a special focus on media - films, documentaries, video games, advertising. I produce a wide range of styles - orchestral/rock/pop/jazz/electronic. It took long years of studying and working hard, and performing in venues from biker's joints to the royal court, for me to be able to say this with confidence.
After many years as a performing guitarist, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Film Scoring from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachussetts.
My music is highly adaptable to dramatic and stylistic demands of the project, and I am always quick to respond to client feedback received. The fact that I can spell "Massachussetts" also shows that I'm a great communicator in English.
My goal is to keep clients coming back to me - I never settle for delivering mediocre projects!

This is our third time working with Vlad, and he never stops amazing us. This was a big last minute job, and he was very timely with getting everything we needed completed. The orchestrations and arrangement was so moving, we are almost sad to sing over it. :) We can't wait to work with him again in the future.
epic as always :)
Vlad was very passionate with our project and wanted to make our song as epic as possible. His orchestrations were unexpected and very close to perfect technical perfection, and with a reasonable price. He was also quick with responding and had no concerns with revisions if needed. I cannot wait to work with him again!
