Gabriele Saro was born in Spilimbergo (Pordenone, Italy) and he lives in Villalta di Fagagna (UD).

He has been always motivated by two different attitudes: on one hand scientific rational, on the other hand artistic and creative. He has a scientific A levels and a Bachelor Degree in Business Economy, a Diploma in Violin and a Master of Music in Film Composition: different paths, but Gabriele knows how to mix them perfectly.

That's why he accomplished a Master in Neuro-linguistic Programming in 2012 and a collaboration with NLP's international trainer Marco Valerio Ricci for the realization of sound material for therapies: music and rationality, research and harmony.

These are just a few interest of Gabriele, the ones which influence his artistic career: anthropology, biology and science fiction... but the most important activity is beyond doubt music and composition.

He cooperates as a violinist in classic and light music, he sings in various choirs of Friuli Venezia Giulia and he also went on several tournée abroad with them, the last one in Canada.

Not just the violin: infact, Gabriele can play also the piano and the organ, he listens to music of all kind, especially soundtracks. He deeply believes that a man never stops learning: he combines the experience gained over years (concerts and choral direction seminary, summer camps and wind orchestra contests) with passion for composition. He attended Masterclass in Film Scoring and Production Music with M° Hans Zimmer (Hans Zimmer Masterclass) DJ Armin Van Buuren (Armin Van Buuren Masterclass), M° T.C. Jones (M.I.T. Theory - Hollywood Music Workshop 2016), M° P. Buonvino M° R. Frattini, M° G. Plenizio, M° R. Calabretto M° S. Rapezzi and M° G. De Mezzo and in composition, arrangement and direction with M° Conrade Pope (Hollywood Music Workshop 2017), M° R. Stroope, M° V. Miskinis, M° V. Sivilotti, M° R. Miani, M° L. Donati, M° A. Cadario, M° V. Zoccatelli, M° A. Martinolli,  M° W. Pfaff, M° V. Poles, M° G. Venier and M° M. Corcella. He is active member on Masterclasses in Film Making with the Teachers Ron Howard, Werner Herzog, Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee.

Art and science, holy and profane: Gabriele's dual soul reveals itself also in the variety of his compositions. Rising sacred music composer thanks to many masses and pieces for "a cappella" or with instrumentals, boasts many flattering appreciations also for his profane compositions, mainly for symphonic and wind orchestra. His music is published by Ravel Music PublisherMusiche d'inCanto Edizioni and Azzola Edizioni.

The enthusiasm and the passion for his job and for his life got him in touch with lots of persons, creating new collaborations. Musicians as Andrea del Piccolo (pianist), Andrea Toffolini (pianist 4 hands) and Francesco Pinosa (cellist) helped him recording CDs "Sunsets", "Sunsets  2" and "Passion" (on AMAZON, BigCartel, Macrolibrarsi, Il Giardino dei Libri, and on digital download worldwide). These tracks for piano, violin and cello can be considered as first works that bring Gabriele closer to the world of incidental music: those are the most appreciated works according to the public and with a lot of plays on internet since July 2010 from all over the world, and radio broadcasting in Canada and Japan in particular, making Gabriele extremely proud; in particular the albums Passion and Sunsets 2 are Silver Medal at Global Music Awards 2017. Soon the new CD “SensationS” , for violin, cello and piano.

And the creative mind of Gabriele is in evidence with his last works: the album “Glimpses: Orchestral Light Music”, with music for symphonic orchestra and wind orchestra, (looking at Hollywood Soundtracks, and including the opera “Views of Fagagna” dedicated to his native village), and several albums of electronic and chill-out/lounge musicwhere he explores modern  sonorities. His passion for the choral music, choirs and orchestra has ispired Gabriele on the creation of 2 albums for choir, instruments and orchestra.

He has plenty of collaborations: he works and share his notes also with lots of dance music artists for Pop, R&B and Club music. One recent achievement for Gabriele is the agreements that he signed with  prestigious american publishers, like  Simply Grand Music Inc. - Memphis -  and Music Of The Sea Inc. - Chicago / Los Angeles (Audiosparx, Songtradr) for the commercial licensing of his songs and commercial jingles (Top 100 Artists, Omnicom Group NYC, major films, indie films, networks and cable tv, advertising, in store play, phone apps, video games); his music has been pitched by Companies like FOX, BBDO,  L'Oreal, Fed Ex, American Media Inc., Clockwise Media Ltd. Five are the compilations with also his commercial music, published with the alias  Gabe Saro. As a result from collaborations, several albums with rock-acid house music, and new-age music (NBO Project).
