The Frost School of Music congratulates alumnus Nicolas Repetto, B.M. ’03, on his current string of successes composing for film, television and multi-media.

Nicolas’ latest original score is for the feature documentary The Sound of Identity, now available to watch on STARZ. The documentary chronicles the life of the first transgender opera singer, Lucia Lucas, and has been featured in the New York Times as well as being named the winner of the Programmers Award of Excellence at the OUTshine Film Festival.

"This wonderful education has served me well living in Los Angeles," states Nicolas. "It provided me with a wonderful setting to help me explore my creativity, my music, and gave me the foundation to pursue what I always wanted to do: make and create music with amazingly talented musicians and collaborators around the world."

Nicolas’ other recent credits include the score of Phil Harding’s feature drama, The Reunion, and the Slamdance Film Festival premiere of the episodic/pilot Tijuana directed by Mary-Lyn Chambers. He is also composing original music for The American Question by director James Kicklighter, the fantasy feature Empire Queen: The Golden Age of Magic by director Chris Dane Owens (based on his YouTube video which garnered over a million views), and the indie horror feature, Spider by director Desmon Heck (NCIS, Criminal Minds). Past projects include the Hollywood Music In Media Award-nominated score to Ode In Blood and The Plural of Blood, Debris (Escombros) which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival/Film Independent and the American Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival. Also, Nick played violin on the score to the 2016 Oscar-winning documentary, O.J.: Made In America as well as the new Deadmau5 album Live at the Wiltern. In addition, Nicolas has had music placements on TLC, HBO, and various advertising campaigns.
