Peter Dragotta

Peter Dragotta is a composer, wind synthesist, brass instrumentalist, producer, and leader of the electro/creative music ensemble pharmacopia. For over 20 years he has connected his jazz origins with ambient, house, electronica and break beats, as well as elements from hip hop, rock, pop, and classical music melding them into soundscapes of deep intensity.

Before being an active musician/composer, Dragotta started his career behind the scenes on the business side of the music industry starting in 1984 promoting artists and bands like Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Iron Maiden, and The Pet Shop Boys for Capitol-EMI.

There he took advantage of his on-air personality “Party Patrol Pete” and played trumpet and percussion at station sponsored events with artists such as Gloria Estefan, The Beach Boys, DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, and Harry Bellefonte. ...
