Polish-Bulgarian composer, pianist, and music producer.
Born in Bulgaria and raised in Poland, he became fascinated with the piano at the age of seven. Valkov explores both classical and jazz education, representing a unique cultural melting pot of Slavic and Balkan folklore, European classical traditions with the novelty of contemporary and electronic music.
He won the grand prize at the 7th edition of the Berlinale Score Competition and was nominated for the European Talent Award held in Cologne. He has composed scores for movies directed by Oscar-nominated Tomasz Bagiński (Polish Legends, Ambition), Andrzej Wajda (Brief Chronicles of the Time) and Jan P. Matuszyński (Deep Love, The Last Family, Offline, Heaven). He collaborated with the European Space Agency on the album Ambition, released to commemorate the groundbreaking Rosetta mission and the landing on the 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet.
Valkov is also the author of the Transoriental project and the producer of the platinum album Transoriental Orchestra by Kayah . He worked as a producer on many albums, singles, remixes, film scores, cinematics and international advertising campaigns. He performs at music festivals and in clubs across Europe.
