4 ReviewsEndorse Manuel Marino
Manuel is a very experienced and talented composer! I really thanks to his great contribution in the original soundtrack of my awarded short film "I Said" (https://vimeo.com/244450286). I definitely wish to work with him again in the future!
I worked with Manuel on several projects, both videogames and other type of productions. In every situation he has always shown himself to be very professional, helpful, friendly and quick to deliver. The passion he puts into his work is evident in the great musical production he has always shown.
I have met Manu during working on our indie game side-project. This initiative is probably one of the most important things to me and to my team, and Manuel put a lot of effort to prove his engagement, support, positive attitude, and proactivity in each of smaller or bigger requested music orders. Manuel's retrowave taste fits to our genre and my needs better than expected. Also, he is very open to cooperation and polishing the result. His talent to compose catchy, rhytmic and various retro or orchestral themes, makes our game (stylized to 80s and 90s) a bit closer to being finished.
As a Game Developer I had met Manuel through standard online mediums, I had quite a large order to fill and so I sought out Manuel Marino to complete my requirements.
I find that the work provided by Manuel to be above my expectations on every occasion. I have asked Manuel for a variety of work including Sound Effects, Orchestras and Voice Acting, to which every audio created has amazed me.
Every piece of work provided by Manuel is a masterpiece and I cannot think more highly of this man's work, his friendly demeanour, quality of work and attention to detail is exemplary.
Interview with Manuel Marino
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My story begins many years ago during those wonderful mp3.com years! In few months I became one of mp3.com top artists with the pseudonym Vanethian and featured in famous FLASHBACK2000 compilation. Then more than 100 videogame soundtracks, commercials, short films and more. The future is bright.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Normal Digital Orchestras just have recordings of the Orchestral Instruments that can be played on a keyboard. This makes anything too much "perfect" and robotic. My custom made Orchestra has those imperfections typical of real orchestras, like noises and "errors" (humanization). Real violins as example, since are played by multiple performers at the same time, have slighly differences from violin to violin. Those performers are humans! But this creates that wonderful "choral" effect that we love when listening to real orchestras. I reproduce that effect.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Most noticeable accents of my work are: Powerful, deep, almost rock violins; deep tones for the most; able to create various themes, a very wide spectrum during the same composition.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work with keyboards, guitars and basses to create a unique soundtrack made of digital and analog sounds. I've got a custom made Orchestra I specially configured to be very realistic.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love the Greatest Film Music Composers, like John Williams, Ennio Morricone, Jerry Goldsmith, Hans Zimmer, James Horner, Danny Elfman, Alan Silvestri, Howard Shore, Basil Poledouris, Wendy Carlos, Vangelis.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My main role is Film Music and Game Music Composer. So I create soundtracks to be synced to the video.
