Born in New York, Beltrami studied music at the Yale School of Music, then in Italy, before apprenticing with legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith in L.A. “Maybe it’s because I’m partly schizophrenic to begin with,” he says, “but it seems to be refreshing to work on something for a while, then…take a break and work on something that’s the complete opposite. It’s fun.”
