Flint Juventino Beppe and music - an inseparable entity

Composing and creative art is a lifestyle for Flint Juventino Beppe (b.1973). This has never been a conscious choice; it had to be this way. As long as he can remember, music has flowed through his mind – and Beppe's lifestyle has been greatly influenced by this. 


— It is really as simple as it is complicated: I breathe in what life has to offer, and breathe out what I have to offer life. I have given up trying to grasp what actually happens in the process from impression to expression.

Flint Juventino Beppe

He started creating music in his childhood; everything from songs, to works for different instrumentations, electronic music and orchestral works. 

As per 2016, Beppe's catalogue of works comprises about 200 titles, more than 80 opuses, including commissions and works for piano, flute, clarinet, violin, viola, cello, double bass, string orchestra and orchestral works like flute concertos, piano concertos and symphonic poems. Beppe has also written ballet music, electro acoustic works, film soundtracks and songs with lyrics. He has contributed as composer on a selection of albums. Flute Mystery (2L), featuring Vladimir Ashkenazy and Beppe as conductors, was Grammy nominated in 2010. The sequel Remote Galaxy (2L) was Grammy-nominated in 2015, and features conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy, Emily Beynon, Mark van de Wiel, Ralph Rousseau and Philharmonia Orchestra.

Beppe's works have been performed around the world, e.g. the USA (The Kennedy Center), Russia, England (St. John's, Smith Square), Finland and Japan. Collaborations with and performances by Philharmonia Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Emily Beynon, Mark van de Wiel, Sir James Galway, Ralph Rousseau, Leonard Slatkin and Vladimir Ashkenazy.

Beppe is diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome and Asperger's syndrome. The social limitations often connected to these syndromes might explain why Beppe has no conventional musical education. Flint Juventino Beppe's artistic expression is a constant advocacy of the individual's free will and personal autonomy – without irrelevant intrusion of the private sphere. The multi award-winning documentary Exhaling Music tells of Beppe's intense and life-threatening breach with religion when he was 17. His childhood religion could never follow him into adulthood. Having no specific political preferences, Beppe has nevertheless always felt powerful liberalistic undertones occupying his mind: an esteem for individual freedom permeating all his art. Hence, Beppe is constantly dreaming of a world without religions and violating politics.

Beppe is composer, scriptwriter, director and producer for the music & art film production  Symbiophonies.


Memberships:  Deutscher Komponistenverband , GEMA and GVL.
