Biography

From a early age, he was interested in music and composition, and studied in the conservatory with the piano as main instrument. Soon he discovered the electronic music of the '70s: Jean Michel Jarre, Mike Oldfield and Kraftwerk, among others, and began to be interested in music composition using synthesizers and the first PC sequencers, creating several themes under these influences, that were recorded into several albums. The film music and soundtracks were very fascinating to him, and he began to compose his first works with a Hollywood cinema sound for several projects that were offering to him. We can find many different genres in his music: electronic music, symphonic, piano solos, works for orchestra and choir, etc.

He has composed music for short films, animation films and documentaries for directors from 5 different countries. Now he is writing the music and lyrics for a musical show that will be opened in Madrid. He composed his first score for a 3D animation film directed by Rob Dollase: Dry Sky. This soundtrack was nominee for the best music in short film in the "Jerry Goldsmith Awards", and he won the "Gold Medal for Excellence" in the "Park City Film Music Festival", Utah (USA) in 2006.

Recently, Jesús Calderón has been double nominee for "best music in short film - animation" for TIN CAN HEART, and for "best music in documentary" for TIERRA DE OFICIOS (land of professions) on the prestigious "Jerry Goldsmith Awards" of the V International Film Music Festival "Ciudad de Úbeda".
