David Frangioni started his music career as a drummer, but soon became a pioneer in MIDI technology. This lead him into the studio as an engineer and producer for dozens of top artists including The Stones, Ringo Starr, Aerosmith, Elton John, Sting, Carl Palmer, Journey, Styx, KISS, Phil Collins, Shakira, Ozzy Osbourne, and more.
David is also the founder of Audio One, one of the most successful and awarded A/V firms in the U.S, as well as multimedia design, installation and content company Frangioni Media. Audio One specializes in the super sophisticated home automation, and the company has built hundreds of technology, sound, and automation installations to date. He’s also an author with 3 books to his credit, and he’s extremely active in a variety of charitable foundations.
In the interview we talked about David getting his start in the studio with Aerosmith, why credits are so important, the challenges of high-end home automation, writing books about Clint Eastwood and vintage drums, and much more. I spoke with David via skype from his home in Florida.
On the intro I’ll take a look at the most musical cities in the world today, and Netflix upping the audio ante to hi-res.
