Valerio Personeni

Composer, Sound Designer, Philosopher

About me!

I’m passionate about music, immersion and emotions.
I’ve been learning music since my youth. I’ve learned by myself, professors and thanks to the numerous bands I was in. In parallel, I kept on learning music with a theoretical education in high-school and a bachelor in musicology with a training in harmony and counterpoint at the University of Geneva. At the same time, I always wanted to investigate the relation between fiction (movies, plays and video-games above all) and emotions. That’s why I followed, in parallel of my music studies, a bachelor in philosophy.
More precisely, I studied philosophy of the mind, metaphysic and philosophy of the neurosciences. The purpose of acquiring that specific knowledge is to understand why and how we can have emotions about fiction and how we can improve the emotional potential of a fiction. I use my researches as tools in my compositions and in my sound design.
When I started working with the video-games community I decided to learn new languages. So I took classes at the university in Javascript and Python. To be as independent as possible in my work, I learned Wwise, and Fmod. With that knowledge I can integrate directly the musics/sounds I make and communicate with programmers.
