A native of Madrid, Lucas Vidal was exposed to the intricacies of music composition at a very young age, developing compositional chops that fostered a distinct voice and a unique method of longhand writing skills. He then proceeded to make history while attending Berklee College of Music. He was the youngest student to ever compose and record the score for a feature film with an 80-piece orchestra. Following graduation he moved to New York to continue his studies under the guidance of Richard Danielpour while attending the Julliard School of Music.
In addition to numerous feature films, advertisements and video game soundtracks, Vidal’s resume includes compositions for the Boston Ballet, Boston Symphony Hall, and Los Angeles’ renowned Disney Hall. He has recorded more than 100 sessions in most of the major studios throughout the United States and Europe.
Vidal has recently completed work on the music for the blockbuster film Fast and Furious 6 for Universal Studios and director Justin Lin. Other recent projects include The Raven with John Cusack and The Cold Light of Day starring Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver, resulting in a nomination for “Discovery of the Year” at the World Soundtrack Awards. Vidal currently splits his time between Madrid and Los Angeles.
