Nico Vettese is a talented composer who was born in Yorkshire, Northern England, and currently resides in Lancaster. Self-taught, and preferring to be called a composer rather than a musician, he enjoys the ability to work on a piece until it feels perfect. Trained in guitar and piano, Nico now immerses himself in music theory.
Influences for his work come from everywhere, but his biggest influence is Nobuo
Uematsu who was the composer for the ‘Final Fantasy’ video games.
His music production entity, We Talk of Dreams, takes its name from a line spoken by Mercutio in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. Some of his credits, in addition to his work on The Wicked Library and The Lift, include a series on Soundcloud called “Reimagined”. He is also hard at work on the Score for Carrot Field, an epic fantasy by TWL Alum Vincent Asaro (Episode 610: Demon In the Wire), as well as two video games, ‘Distant Suns’ – A co-op space adventure and ‘Nekodama Catastrophe’ – a hack ’n’ slash arcade game.
Nico was the Music Director of The Wicked Library for the second half of Season Six.
