Currently, he is studying a master's degree at the Conservatory of Tilburg (AMPA) in music composition with Anthony Fiumara.
Additionally, he considers his composition style is influenced by composers of different musical contexts, like Igor Stravinsky, György Ligeti, Charles Mingus, Tigran Hamasyan, Chico Buarque, and so on.
His repertoire includes a wide variety of different instrumentations, going from different mixed ensembles to full orchestra. His music has been performed by different artists and ensembles such as Matthijs Koene, Arthema Quartet, Daniela Mars, etc.
Bruno believes that music needs to be seen as a tool for helping people become better; during several years he was a volunteer in different NGOs that intend to change the people’s living conditions in his country.
