Mariano receives the Hollywood Music in media Awards

 for Best Score for a short film at the ceremony celebrated at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood.



I was born in March 25th 1967.

I began playing melodica in 1977 at the age of 10 years old.

During those early days of 1977 three events inspired me for ever about music:

  1. Attending to a small theatre play when I was in  primary school, where I´ve got a blast by the "off stage performance" of a musician who played the score live to the play, performing on acoustic guitar, harmonica, keyboards, percussion and Glockenspiel.


Then, I immediately dig of the music to drama relationship, and I felt driven to play multiple instruments.


2.Going to the cinema to watch a new Sci-Fi film and discovering my mind have been blown up by its score was one of those.

It was Star Wars, by John Williams.

 03. Having lunch at the beach along my dad, and hearing a tune: 

"Isn´t She Lovely" ("Songs In The Key of Life" by Stevie Wonder),

played on the cook´s stereo cassette player.

 At that moment I felt that my soul´s going to be guided by the music itself.

And the song went like this:

  A few yeras later, in 1982, at the age of 15 years old I finally got my first keyboard instrument, a little Yamaha PS3 portable organ.Studying on this small three octaves keyboard I was tough on Jazz by keyboard player/studio sessionist Juan del Barrio.

A few months later, I put together my first jazz  fusion band along my dear friend Gustavo Sadofschi,

featuring my debut as keyboard player on live gigs as well as a young composer.

During my college years I studied harmony with American Guitarist James Tobias, Argentine Folklore music tradition with Rubens "Donvi" Vitale and Piano with Juan Carlos "Mono" Fontana.

  After spending some time as a session player and composer for many local Jazz Fusion bands as well as performing in many Pop/Rock gigs, in 1986 at the age of 19, I was asked to write the score to a thesis short film for a long time friend.

Armed with just a KORG Poly-800 synthesizer, a few percussion instruments and a self made "map" of the short film, they rent few hours on a recording studio for me and I composed my first score ever, on the spot.


Right there, I embraced my love for composing for film,

and I began a self taugh journey on film scoring that still continues,

nowadays along with my beloved family.


Thanks for reading, thanks for watching,

and thanks for listening.


All my best,
