Marco Spaventi

“Right after my diploma I soon became head lecturer for the electronic music production course (EMP). I spent the following years teaching and growing my technical skills in the studio and on stage. Nowadays I am a full-time producer and audio engineer in mixing, mastering, post-production and sound design for pictures. I work for several clients worldwide, I regularly play live gigs as MaSpaventi and I offer workshops for Ableton and lessons for The School of House. My studio is part of the Nachtlab complex, the room is professionally tuned and the sound is provided by high definition and full range PMC speakers. I work every day with top gear, the best in both the analog and digital world. Given my background as a musician, I also collected among the best in vintage and modern synthesizers and drum machines, a Fender Rhodes and several modules in the eurorack format.”
