Biography

Milan, Italy (1989 – present)

Alio Die, pseudonym of Stefano Musso (born 24 March 1968 in Milan, Italy), is an Italian composer and producer. Characterized by evocative acoustic sounds manipulated and tendered electronically, Alio Die’s work builds intimate soundscapes tied to the mystery and majesty of life and nature.

Stefano Musso studied art and electronics in his home town of Milan and began performing music under the name Alio Die in 1989. In the early 1990s he released two limited cassette releases, “Sit Tibi Terra Levis” and “Introspective”.

His first CD, “Under An Holy Ritual”, was recorded and released in 1992 on his own label Hic Sunt Leones. It was reissued by Projekt in 1993, receiving international acclaim. Alio Die subsequently released more than 50 albums, and collaborated with many well-known artists such as Robert Rich, Vidna Obmana, Mathias Grassow, Nick Parkin, Yannick Dauby, Jack or Jive, Amelia Cuni, Raffaele Serra and Antonio Testa.

His music is a fusion of acoustical elements, samples, echoing percussion, and deep, atmospheric sound design with elements of entropic formlessness. Alio Die’s style has a lot in common with traditional Indian raga music in building an entire song from a simple, continuous starting tone.

    Его сольные мелодии мне понравились больше, нежели чем с теми, с кем он совместно сочинял музыку. Очень сильно понравились такие вот мелодии "Stonevoice" и "Visions Of No-Time Worlds". Прекрасные!

    One of the most relaxing ambient music out there. Company in the lazy afternoons, energy in the mornings.

    'deconsecrated & pure' is a really strong work. there is something so unique and wonderfully unsettling and surreal about his work. too much ambient out there that belongs on a bed-bath-and-beyond endcap, just predictable drivel. 'under an holy ritual' is mindblowing, still my favorite. 'the hidden spring' and 'le stanze della trascendenza' are also highlights.

    Alio Die found an inspiration for his music here in distant times of our Old Contient. This music is so special because of that. Go to see any old castle and listen to the music, the place will live again with people continuing their chores started centuries ago, just for this special moment...

    An incredibly talented artist. There's really nothing I can say that will overstate the beauty of his music.

    ALIO DIE - “Deconsecrated And Pure” - The five tracks of " Deconsacrated And Pure " have the inviolable value of the homage of Alio Die with the religious structures of ancient, Romanesque and Gothic, medieval monk: he devotes to the sound hermit hermits spiritual music for the angels of meat, Stefano Musso ascetic of the laptop in so many projects, collaborations, installations, venerated the transcendent music. -.-.-.-. om hari om ..... ॐ
