“I am still fascinated by his musical work too, also after so many, fourteen years! Of course not all of his titles arrive for all listeners, but a handful of compositions by him are so sensitive that they can trigger real or fantastic emotions! You have to differentiate between songwriters and sound designers. The sound designer Stefano, almost overlaps the limits of harmony, but still remains contextual, extremely diverse in the ductus, with varying tension-producing high points. This are then skilfully flicked off again, with a so coloured high contrast! “

“I have had the pleasure to have Stefano in my team at Fox for 10 years. He has always highly contributed with his tremendously skilled sound designs and music compositions, to the success of the promotional campaigns. He is a very talented artist, with extremely solid technical knowledge. On the personal level, Stefano is a very nice person and working with him is a very rewarding experience. I highly recommend him for any audio or music project, either as a freelancer or for long term cooperation.”

“I had the honor to work with Stefano for ten years at Fox Networks Group. His talent as musician, composer and sound designer elevated our editing to a higher level. I remember particularly the powerful original music he composed for History Channel’s “Mankind”, among the many pieces for which he won awards for during those years. Amazing professional to work with”MARINA DE PEDRO – SENIOR EDITOR
