In short, the world is being introduced to a tremendously cinematic, neo-classical hit of multi-layered, Orchestral Opera and immersive, lively musicality. There are as many ways to describe the immense journey that this piece has taken us on. “Perduto” is a song written and composed by B.A. Bellec, a Canadian author/composer, collaborated with Skrybe and Armenia Sarkissian to create an appropriately skewed hit.
Born in Richmond, BC, “Bellec” moved to Langley, BC, before settling in Manitoba’s capital city of Winnipeg. While attending Lights Film School during this time, he began to develop his early creative talents.
After entering film school, it took him several years to finally combine his creative skills with his life experience and tell the stories he had kept from the public for so long. Lukas Rossi, Justin Furstenfeld, Peter Jackson, Stephen Chbosky, J.K. Rowling, and Stephen King are some of his favorite artists.
Pulse, Bellec’s second novel, was written at COVID-19 when he started a YouTube account and pounded away at the keyboard. He is eagerly awaiting the release of that book and the accompanying new music!
You won’t have seen anything like “Perduto” in the recent past and Bellec’s other work. It proves beautifully fascinating by using slight shock and intensity with pristine purity, delicacy, and genuine human emotion.
“Perduto” is a mesmerizing introduction to Bellec’s escapism and sonic excursions, with orchestral, operatic voice layers of delicacy and curiosity raining through between organic rhythms and a layer of reverb.
There is a gradual increase in complexity and finer-tuned production quality as the tension grows. That’s why as it progresses, the song gets progressively more all-consuming.
The increasing anticipation, the entrance of the beat, the power of the grove, and that sensationally meandering vocal melody all reinforce a level of emotional strength and possibility. It’s a composition that empowers you, in the end.
In hindsight, it’s a beautiful song, one that grows more engrossing as it progresses from a purely majestic and theatrical electronic ambiance to a more immersive experience.
Composer and audio expert B.A. Bellec has created a piece of music that is genuinely distinctive and captivating. Definitely, a composer to be familiar with.
