Dario is currently working on the new album of his Film/TV licensing project “Aerial Circles” which combines atmospheric guitars, sound design, and the cinematic world.

The project is inspired by the idea of creating a guitar-driven soundscape through “composing and de-composing” parts and mixing them with cinematic sounds.

The full album will contain 10 instrumental tracks and will be released in early 2016.

Go on the MUSIC section of this website to check out the first 3 tracks “Luci Fredde”, “Rain Drops”, and “Breathe In”.
