His musical journey started at the age of 8 in his hometown of Buenos Aires, Argentina where he discovered the world of Jazz and Blues. After a few years of learning the piano, he discovered his true passion was the guitar.
Raijman’s desire to learn everything there is to know about string instruments and his unwavering devotion to the art of composition is what sets his work apart from the rest.
“I’m passionate about music because every time I play, compose or listen to music, I feel I’m connecting with myself as well as with others throughout this incredible universal language,” he said.
His first taste of the music industry was when he played guitar and composed his first album with the band Quinta Estacion, a contemporary Jazz quartet. From 2006-2009 he toured with Orquesta Kef through Argentina and Uruguay and in 2010 he formed the group Pentafono, a contemporary jazz quintet.
In 2012 he produced “Imagem Imortal”, Rosario Barreto’s first album and in 2014 he played guitar and co-produced with Orlando Perez Rosso “Música Ocañera Volumen 2”. He was also able to play with Gastón Poirier and Gabriela Echevarria during the Raijman-Poirier Duet Show in 2014, and one of his songs, "Lo Que Mueve Las Cosas," wfor brands like Fibertel, Epson,ional camapings rier Duet Show and in ed piano and composed as well, Manuel Jauregui played bassas included in Echevarria´s second Album "Alli”.
Since then, Raijman has been working independently as a musician and composer with various instrumental groups and notable companies like Coca-Cola, American Airlines and Epson. He also recently worked as a guitarist for singer and actress, Christina Maria Davis.
His multidimensional educational background has allowed him to have his hands in numerous stages of the production process from composing and arranging to recording and mastering.
In addition to his love of music, he has developed a fascinating ability in film scoring. Raijman grew up in awe of Spielberg’s ability to create a story and John Williams’ impressive imagination to create an equally imaginative score. The combination of creating music for film was the perfect outlet for Raijman’s talents.
“Music is often used in film to describe what is not on the screen but rather in your heart,” Raijman said. “When a great score is fully integrated to a film, we can experience the magic of this art.”
This lifelong fascination with music and film has led him to multiple degrees, including a specialization in Film and Television Orchestration from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. He also graduated with distinction from the UCLA Extension Film Scoring program. In addition to his schooling, Raijman has had the privilege to perfect his craft with some of the most influential names in music, including Pino Marrone, Franciso Rivero, Walter and Javier Malosetti, Oscar Giunta and Hernan Jacinto.
Another notable name Raijman has had the opportunity to work with is the talented filmmaker and producer Angelo Agojo. Raijman and Agojo worked together on the film An Opening to Closure, which Raijman played guitar and composed the music for. The film went on to earn multiple Official Selections from the 2015 Los Angeles Lift-Off International Film Festival, Las Vegas Lift-Off International Film Festival, Hollyshorts Film Festival and Asians on Film Festival.
Raijman also mixed the documentary 15 Años Sin vos, which went on to earn an Official Selection at the 2008 Jewish International Film Festivals in Uruguay and Spain and the 10th Human Rights International Film Festival in Argentina.
