The creative director

luciano stazzone

Interdisciplinary artist, multi-instrumentalist, sound designer, music composer and producer.

Mr Stazzone's work defines itself by the incorporation of visual impact to music. Music to images is his experimental field. Ultimately, he creates visual imagery as a result of a musical process.

He uses interdisciplinary arts as the way to communicate a universal message of love, equality and joy. Experimenting on a non conventional level with dance, theater and live music as well as using animation, lighting and electronic sound devices. Mr Stazzone's production takes us into audio-visual journeys offering a very unique view of life, human culture and folklore.

Technology applied to art, and the sweet spot where images, sound, and live performance meet are his element.

South Florida Theater Review

"Luciano Stazzone deserve a Carbonell Award (about the "The Red Thread" original music score) which combines traditional Asian sounds with an electronic undercurrent."

southfloridatheaterreview.com


About "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" music scoring...
"The mix of intelligent, original songs affirms that this show is not for babies. Alternating between genuine Afro-Latin rhythms, voodoo-style chants, and upbeat soul/funk, the music rises several leagues above most contemporary children's songbooks"...

Andres Solar- NEW TIMES


About his band...
"Mano Santa tears the room up"

Jordan Levin- THE MIAMI HERALD


"Man, this guy is the best!!! so creative!!! It's playing with bamboo sticks!"

   Super Dj Dimitri from Dee-lite


"Luciano Stazzone is a dream collaborator. He grabs an idea and develops it into something better than I could ever imagine"

Stephanie Ansin


"A true man of music, it's an honor to work with him"

Grammy award winner, producer and engineer, Sam "Fish" Fisher



"Often the postmodern esthetic introduces a boring aspect know as "musica de amoblamiento" or "elevator music", this is clearly not the case on Luciano's productions. The Brazilian, Caribbean and Jamaican elements flow in such a unique way, urban, today's sounds I would say..."

Jazz Trumpeter Esteban Garvie


"Luciano killed it!"

Lionel Ritchie
