Ryan Nicholas Berretta – Producer, Composer, Musician & Remixer: Ryan Berretta developed a passion for music at a very young age. Reaching for the keys of his grandmother’s organ before he could walk, he received his first piano at the age of 3. Starting out as a self-taught artist, and performing by ear, his foundation is rooted in such classical masters as Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, & Tchaikovsky. By the age of 12 he had developed a keen interest in every instrument he could spend time with. From here, he began documenting his ideas involving various new instrumental ensembles and arrangements. At the age of 16, invited by his older brother Alex, he was brought into a recording studio for the first time to write a piano piece onto the label’s upcoming record release. From that point forward, Ryan was inspired to teach himself audio production, sound design & Foley recording. As Ryan traveled the world and experienced music and culture in over 50 countries, his music began to evolve. This brought more diversity and dynamics to his original productions combining Electronic, Experimental & Classical music. As a One Community partner Ryan is applying his musical talent to the audio tracks of One Community’s time-lapse videos related to our open source tools, tutorials, and resources.
