Jorge & Guillermo Badolato form a unique team of composers—two brothers with a passion to create music to satisfy multiple genre and mediums. Their successful and recognized body of work has encompassed film, Television, interactive multimedia and advertising for over twenty years.
From their early youth, the brothers were surrounded by an artistic and creative environment of painters, writers and musicians that knew how to impress upon them the love for any artistic manifestation, and the necessity of constantly expressing themselves through their music. Their architect father and publicist mother nurtured their success further.
A major element of their success is their versatility—based on having multi-variant music training—experimentation and their ability to assimilate to their client’s vision.
With an insatiable desire to listen to all kinds and manner of music over the years, this allowed them to compose and perform on a wide musical palette of styles, with ranges from the orchestral classical world and film scoring, to the most authentic Jazz, rock, blues, Latin, metal, world, dance and other modern genre.
Since childhood, they have always had an special fascination and predilection for film, spending a large part of their savings going to the premiere of as many films as they could, movie marathons, cinemas and the film library projections in their neighborhood. Consequently, this exposure gave them the opportunity to recognize the work of great film composers of all eras, giving themselves a certain advantage to completely understand the language that great film directors—both from the past and present—demanded for their films.
Working together occurred in a very natural way. Although coming from “different worlds,” as the years passed, a mutual influence of admiration and assimilation took place, with the brothers learning from each other their respective specialties. Early on, they had a number of occasions to mix both genres—classical & rock—when performing for intimate artistic gatherings. It was from these beginnings Badolatomusic was formed.
From the early 80s to present, videogames have had an equal impact on their music, for they have played all genres of games on every imaginable platform. It naturally followed that this passion translated into scoring and sound design for the industry and other interactive media. They have specialized on creating multilayered interactive tracks for “next generation” videogames.
Because of scoring videogames, they have a "geek-type” of interest in the medium, and make themselves aware of the latest modern technologies related to music production. Going one-step further, they enjoy designing, gathering components and mounting their own digital audio workstations.
Having the ability to deliver live symphonic orchestra scores, some of their original compositions and orchestrations have been recorded by The Budapest Film Orchestra, and have relationships with some of the finest European orchestras and choirs, including the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra.
They also create hybrid scores, incorporating modern and traditional music elements. They create and produce powerful orchestral mockups, using the latest virtual instrument orchestral sampler libraries; record live, all guitars (electric, acoustic & Spanish) and keyboards; sequence for virtually any instrument; and, contract the finest professional musicians and singers to perform on their productions as needed.
The brothers have residences in Madrid, Spain, and Los Angeles, California.
