A global traveler and musical performer, Ivan has refined his tastes in music by going native in several countries and nourishing his musical soul. This gives his music a voice that is original and exciting to the world of Film and TV music.
Ivan's composition wheelhouse is highly refined and built from his lifelong training in many classical forms, ethnic indigenous forms, and popular music. His life of music, studying in India, Europe, Chile, and Boston have given him a wealth of authentic musical instrument performance techniques and knowledge for playing and writing parts for Film and TV.
