Marco Madia was born (1987) in Milan, Italy, and currently lives in Berlin. He works as a musician and sound designer and frequently merges the two.
As a musician he’s been active since his pre-teens. Before his move to Berlin in 2006, he was a firm fixture at the turntables in Milan’s electronic underground scene. Once in Berlin, he got a degree in audio engineering at SAE and, alongside his continuous music making, started working as a sound designer.
Coming from an art school education the step to artistically oriented sound design wasn’t big and apart from sound design for physical spaces (environmental sound design) such as shops, airports and parks, he’s done sound installations as well as pure sound art. He’s also done several movie soundtracks and compositional work for ballet and various openings.
