Hello I'm Claudio, 37 years old from Sicily but I live in Milan.
Since 2013 I produce music for film, series, commercials and video games. Music I composed was used in international shows like Empire (FOX), Big Shot (Disney), Chicago P.D. (NBC), Madam Secretary (CBS), Cupcake And Dino (Netflix), Valeria (Netflix), Chicago Med (NBC), Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol (Netflix) Queen Sugar (OWN), Record Of Youth (Netflix), Dante Confidential (RAI) and also in video games like The Crew 2 by Ubisoft.
I was a professional jazz musician for 20 years until the Covid pandemic. After the studies with the legend Barry Harris, I played around the world with great jazz musicians like Roy Hargrove , Charlie Persip and many more. In Italy I worked as bass player for band Sugarpie & The Candymen and we toured extensively for 5 years, also working in radio and television with the iconic Italian legend Renzo Arbore; we also played with the famous pianist Stefano Bollani. I also was the resident double bass player at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan.
I also do mastering and remastering gigs. I am mostly known for my remastering of the iconic album "Nevermind" by Nirvana.
My hobbies are walking, skating and retro-gaming.

This is the story of a jazz musician that used to play for 20 years at weddings, but also in Italian national televisions and radios with famous artists. Then the world changed and during the lockdown this musician, finding himself unemployed, started to explore the depths of virtual reality and fell in love with it, adopting the prothesic identity (and the wig) of HOLOGRAM BOY. His first single “SINAPSI ATTIVE” was released on the November 10th 2021 and was acclaimed worldwide as a huge success. The new single “DEFRAG PUNTO EXE” (feat. Miss Virtuality) is available as NFT and on all major platforms from the January 14th 2022.
