Hey, I’m Mario!

And I make a whole lot of music. This website is mainly about that.

Here's what I do:

I sing

I’m a professional-grade rock vocalist with 10+ years of experience both live and in the studio

I compose

I’m a writer and arranger for (mostly) video game music with a soft spot for chiptunes, heavy metal, and ’90s eurodance (sorry!)

I produce

From first draft to demo to finished track, I strive to make promising musical projects fulfill their potential

I educate

I’m a band coach, promoter, music blogger and vocal coach — and I like to help where I can, when I can.

Here's some of the projects I've been part of:

The Love Dictators

composer, vocalist, audio engineer

Worked as primary songwriter, lead vocalist, and audio engineer on Montenegro’s premier soviet flavored eurodance export — but don’t tell anyone!

Aphelion: Episodes One and Two

composer

Wrote the soundtrack to American-German two-part Xbox Live Indie RPG series.

Vampires Dawn Series

composer

Contributed music to the German-language RPG series, most notably to “Vampires Dawn II: Ancient Blood” and the upcoming “Vampires Dawn III: The Crimson Realm”.

Frameland

composer

Worked as the primary composer on Austrian retro-inspired tactical role-playing game.

Music speaks louder than words, so here’s some demos:

However, these tracks are pretty old and dusty, but I haven’t had the time to update my virtual portfolio. But it’s super high on my to-do list and I pinky promise to upload new stuff very soon. Don’t go too far away!

I also do heavy metal covers on YouTube:

Here are three songs I’m particularly proud of.

Please note that these videos link to YouTube. You will be leaving my server and my area of responsibility, privacy-wise.
