In 1992, Fatrin's family emigrated to New-York city. He was subsequently accepted to La Guardia High School for Music and Art and the Performing Arts where he studied viola and pursued his education in piano. As an adolescent his dreams and musical ambitions rapidly flourished, leading him to hone his pianistic skills at the very prestigious Manhattan School of Music. His noteworthy debuts include Carnegie Hall and Merkin Hall. The NYC musical scene inspired his first compositions which were soon showcased at Columbia University school of the Arts .
In parallel to his career as a performer, Fatrin's immense interest in the visual arts nourished his compositions. He approaches them like a blank canvas on which he paints musical emotion. It is this ongoing ambition to link image and sound that allows him to realize numerous projects for Film & Television. The award winning short film Dame Factory and feature films: Anatomy of the tide, The warrior and Aavior and Ramona are amongst his recent projects.
