Profile
Alio Die (Stefano Musso) is an Italian organic ambient composer and producer. Stefano Musso studied art and electronics in Milan, Italy, and began performing music in 1989. His music is a fusion of acoustical elements, samples, echoing percussion, and deep, atmospheric sound design with elements of entropic formlessness. The Alio Die style has a lot in common with traditional Indian raga music in building an entire song from a simple, continuous starting tone. He has collaborated with various artists, including Robert Rich (USA), Vidna Obmana (Belgium), Mathias Grassow (Germany), Nick Parkin (UK), Amelia Cuni, Antonio Testa, and others
