MASSPROD

My passion for sound started when I was very young, I got fascinated by electronic music and I have been messing with sounds since then.

In the past twenty years I have been involved in a variety of sound related projects as a student, teacher and performer.

Recently my interest shifted to algorithmic and generative organization and concatenative synthesis of sounds, after being highly influenced by composers and thinkers like Curtis Roads and Miller Puckette.

I released a good amount of albums and eps, in group and as a solo artist.

I have been working in recording studios and radios, I have produced and toured with bands and have played as a D.J. and live performer around the world.

I have made sounds for interactive installations, multimedia experiences, art installations, video art and dance pieces.

In the past few years I have been focusing on teaching audio production and sound design.

TECHNICAL SKILLS

I started using hardware and software to produce electronic music in the late 90’s.

While my software skills developed toward generative/algorithmic sound composition and organisation, the hardware part evolved into sound generation and processing, mainly via a Eurorack modular system controlled by custom patches on Max Msp.

Softwares:

Bitwig Studio – Certified Trainer

Ableton Live, Max Msp, Adobe Audition, CSound, Logic X, PWGL, Finale, Adobe Illustrator (for score editing purpose), Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate [mainly Razor and FM8].

I have been working with Pro Tools, Cubase, Dalet [Broadcasting], Propellerhead Reason, Fruity Loops (from version 1) and many other software and plugins; i been working with Processing and the Arduino IDE, mainly in a “Code Bending” kinda way.

Hardwares:

Nowadays i mainly use a D.I.Y. Raspberry P.I. running Pure Data patches and a Eurorack system.

I have been using most of 80’s and 90’s Roland/Korg/Yamaha/Akai drum machines and synths, four generations of MPC’s. and many different kind of synthesizers: Analog, digital, mono and poly.

I have Practical experience on both Analog and Digital mixing consoles. I have been recording and editing on a variety of analog and digital supports.

I have a deep knowledge of communication protocols as M.I.D.I., “cv gate” and O.S.C. and many other hardware specific communication protocols.
