Corciolli is a Brazilian musician. He was born in the city of Sao Paulo, and begun his musical studies at 13. Besides the organ and classic piano classes, he developed a deep interest for electronic synthesizers and their wide range of sound possibilities. Two years later, he formed his first band, where he performed his compositions and arrangements.
In 1986, working as a musician, he went to the architecture and urbanism college, graduating in 1990. During these years, he played with Celso Pixinga and with the band Espírito Cigano, and composed the pieces that would be part of his first CD All That Binds Us. With this album, he established the Azul Music record company, in 1993.

In the following years, he produced albums attached to the magazines Planeta, PlanetaNovaEra, IstoÉ, Áudio News, MotorShow and Inside. In 1995, he released the CD Unio Mystica, a musical suite in seven movements that presented alchemical texts in Latin, Gregorian Chants and orchestral arrangements. This album brought him international projection, being blessed by Pope John Paul II and released in several countries.

In 1996, he was invited by the Tibetan Monks of Gaden Shartse to perform at the Latin America Memorial, in São Paulo. Afterwards, he recorded the album The New Moon of East, an unedited meeting between the Tibetan sacred music and the work of a Western musician. In 2000, he released the Tudoazul collection: ten CDs inspired in the main alternative therapies and ancestral systems of knowledge. The collection became a best seller, being widely recognized and consolidating Azul Music as a reference in the phonographic market.

With albums released all over the world, featuring in international collections side by side with Vangelis, Yossou N´Dour, Dead Can Dance and Sarah Brightman, Corciolli’s music is inspired and unique. His work is revealed in the rich subtlety of details which unite the traditional to the contemporary; the acoustic to the electronic. To Corciolli, music must not be imposed by limits, rules or styles. It’s got to move, and to charm, by its own.
