bio

Classically trained composer, Caio Amon engages as musical director in artistic projects of diverse areas.

Contemporary music, along with Brazilian and non-Western influences, go together with a strong background in sound design and engineering.

Based in São Paulo (Brazil), explores the creative connection of different musical genres, sonic and visual media. 

He pursued formal education in composition at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, where the study of contemporary techniques and non-Western instruments met his practice of Brazilian popular music, resulting in collaborations with the Atlas Ensemble and Nieuw Ensemble.

Early education in sound engineering at the Musicians Institute (Los Angeles) greatly imparted a sonic dimension to his vision, developed in extensive work in sound design and music production for over 80 projects in film, TV and the performing arts.

The expansion of his research to the visual media led him to found EROICA, a creative producer in which he directs audiovisual and graphic content for the cultural and musical environment .–> eroicaconteudo.com
