Corciolli (born 8 January 1968) is a Brazilian composer and producer of electronic, ambient, contemporary progressive, world and orchestral music. He plays piano, keyboards and synthesizers and he is best known for many successful albums of meditation and ambient music. Some of his work has been featured on international compilation albums, with artists like Vangelis, Hans Zimmer, Sarah Brightman, Luciano Pavarotti and Diana Krall, among others.


Corciolli was born in São Paulo, Brazil and began his musical studies at the age of 13. While taking piano lessons, he developed a strong interest in electronic synthesizers, playing in local bands where he introduced his very first compositions and arrangements. In 1986, he attended the Architecture College, while playing with Brazilian´s bass legend Celso Pixinga and with the rumba flamenco band Espirito Cigano.

In 1993, Corciolli established his own record company, AZUL MUSIC, releasing his first solo album ALL THAT BINDS US, followed by the album UNIO MYSTICA, inspired by medieval alchemy texts, blending Gregorian chants and orchestral arrangements. The album was released in several countries and received Pope Joannes Paulus II blessing. In 1996, he performed with the Tibetan Monks of Gaden Shartse in 2 memorable concerts at the Memorial da America Latina, in São Paulo. Together with the Monks, he released the album THE NEW MOON OF EAST, an unprecedented meeting of the Tibetan sacred chants with western music.

In the following years, Corciolli produced and released many successful albums; EXOTIQUE (1998), UNIO CELESTIA (1999) and the TUDOAZUL (2001) best-seller series of ten albums inspired by holistic therapies and ancestral knowledgement. Highligts include his song Oratio, which was chosen as the main theme of the Brazilian soapbox Essas Mulheres and Toledo, which was the 2007´s Pan-American Games performance theme of renowned gymnast Angelica Kvieczynski. Invited by Caras magazine, Corciolli produced 2 successful series: Caras Zen and Caras Music From the World, totaling sales of over 8 million CDs at newsstands nationwide. Other releases include ART OF SEDUCTION (2001), UM OLHAR (2004), NOSSO LAR (2008) and LIGHTWALK (2009), which features Tony Levin on bass, Naná Vasconcelos on percussion and Andre Matos on vocals.

In 2007 Corciolli performed in the epic concert at Marco Zero, an open-air stage at the main northeastern city of Brazil, Recife. He was also featured in a 12-page interview and appeared on the front cover of the Teclado & Audio magazine.

With more than 2 million album sold in Brazil alone and albums released in 40 countries, Corciolli´s music is featured in many compilations with Vangelis, Hans Zimmer, The Alan Parsons Project, Kitaro, Dead Can Dance, Secret Garden, Era, Sarah Brightman, Enigma, Luciano Pavarotti, Andreas Vollenweider and Diana Krall, among others.
