I am a professional musician based near Rome. I have written, arranged, played, directed and recorded theater music (dramas and musicals), documentaries, short films (sci-fi, crime, horror, comedy), commercials and TV, and I have worked with poets and photographers in many projects.
My background is in classical music, but electronic music offers so many possibilities that it has become an integral part of my work.
I have always been attracted to the union of images and music, so if you have an interesting project (big or small), I looking forward to seeing it.

My name is Yozo Tokuda, I work in the movie industry since the early '90. Throughout last two decades I had the chance and the honour of working with Guido Gavazzi and also watching him work on several music projects, I did benefit of his great scoring for two short movies and a documentary I directed. I am more focused on working as Casting Director now by now but I always look forward of working with him soon.

I have worked very often with Guido Gavazzi and every time I have found great professionalism and creativity. His main characteristic is his interpretation of the proposed themes with great sensitivity. I make videos of different genres, from dramatic and social ones to light ones for children. Guido has always been able to capture the atmospheres of my works in the best possible way since our first collaboration on the occasion of my exhibition in New York, "Inferno Rome". Guido has composed very intense music. Other works for Garcia Lorca. We are now working on several other projects.
Interview with Guido Gavazzi
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll do my best to add with my music something that it's not possible to say in other ways
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Well, my background is classic. I studied composition, direction, orchestration for films, but electronic music is part of our life, it offers us so many possibilities that it has become a predominant part of my sound palette.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: If it is a story set in our day, I prefer to use electronic instruments with the addition of strings and maybe piano. If on the contrary, it is something related to the past, I try to refer to that world. I believe that sometimes a simple clarinet sound can be more incisive than a large orchestra. But exactly the opposite could happen, it is the images that inspire me ....
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Well, when I was a student I have had the opportunity to study film composition with great Italian masters, such as Carlo Savina and Mario Nascimbene and the possibility of being in the recording room while Ennio Morricone was conducting the orchestra of some of his wonderful works, and this obviously has influenced a lot my approach regarding the relationship between video and music
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Normally there is a first contact (via email) in which the director explains the project and his/her idea about the type of music he has in mind. Then he sends me the video and the next day I answer with my ideas on the type of music, instrumentation, etc. If all goes well, in a week I send 2-3 minutes (depending on the length of the project) of my music and if I receive the ok, generally in another week everything is completed. Obviously if there is an urgency I can speed up my work and on the other hand, if it is a big project and there is no immediate deadline, we can work more calmly. Let's say I'm generally very flexible.
