    The studio is very comfortable and the acoustic is excellent! The staff is very professional, FRANCESCO and RIKY are really nice people. The strong point of the studio is how everything sounds, specially if you are looking for a warm acoustic sound, due by a very amazing mixer. Recommended!

    We are Skunk Anansie cover band and we recorded some songs in the recording studio "Musica per il cervello". The place is comfortable, stylish , professional and serious. Frank Matano, sound engineer, is a professional person with clear ideas for each project. Ricky is an excellent person, writer, guitarist. Both extraordinary people. BIG PASSION

    by Ivan

    Massive experience in Musica per il cervello, Riky and Francesco built something that goes over the standard idea of a recording studio: the moment you take a step among that walls is the moment which you realize that you are sourrounded by a family, all you can see there is at your disposal: super equipment and a great professionalism.
