Biography

Pedro Macedo Camacho is an award-winning composer for video games and interactive media. He recently won the Best Audio Award in 2010 Dutch Game Awards due to his work on Fairytale Fights and the IGF 2008 Excellence in Audio Award due to his work on the game Audiosurf.

Pedro Camacho started learning composition with the talented Argentinean maestro and composer Roberto Pérez in his home city’s Conservatoire and Arts School.

After two years he moved to Lisbon where he continued his studies in the National Conservatoire in Lisbon for another four rewarding years with one the best composers and teachers in Portugal, Eurico Carrapatoso.

Under his guidance, Pedro got A+ classification every year, becoming one of the extremely rare students ever to achieve this score in the entire Conservatoire’s history (since 1835).

As a pianist he started with the Croatian teacher and musicologist, Robert Andres, and then with the Portuguese teacher, Melina Rebelo. He got an A in the final exam in Lisbon.

Composing is an important part of Pedro’s life since he was ten years old, when he started composing short musical pieces on the vintage OctaMED program, a tracker for Amiga 500.

Side by side with this classical learning process, Pedro continuously learned Jazz Theory, Composition and Piano with the pianist Jorge Borges and other jazz masters, like Pedro Moreira, , in the most famous Portuguese Jazz School, “Hot Clube Portugal”.
