Born and raised in Porto, Portugal, Flávio Silva discovered music at an early age, playing guitar and later piano, when his father’s musical experiences sparked his passion for music. With a foundation ranging from private lessons to BFA in Music, he realized that his main focus was turned towards music theory, orchestration and composition.
With a distinct sound pallet, bringing together elements from the classical, rock and the electronic world, combined with his own perspective and tone, Flavio is able to forge a unique blend of sound driven by emotion. He utilises a wide range of modern musical sound design ideas merged together with classical composition approaches in order to create a sound world that completely immerses the listener.
Now based in Toronto, Canada, Flávio Silva is active both in composing Film/Trailer music as well as live performances. Currently he is working on a number of cinematic tracks that he plans on releasing to the major streaming platforms in the near future, as well as collaborating with other musicians in a variety of projects.
He has gained ample experience playing with a variety of bands in styles that range from Heavy-Metal to Pop-Rock and he is currently the keyboard player for the Daniel Monte band. They have performed all across the Greater Toronto Area, including a festival where they shared the stage with the reggae fusion band Magic! and the singer songwriter Delaney Jane.
His evocative melodies layered with synthesizers, strings, brass and an underlying percussive movement fuse together to form a gripping musical experience that momentarily pulls the listener outside of reality and into a captivating new environment.
