Gio Lobato

Hi, my name is Gio. I am a commercial music and sound producer currently working as a Senior Producer, Lead Engineer, and Head of IT at duotone audio group.

I grew up in Denver, CO, where I produced my first track at the age of 13. Starting with a microphone from the segunda, a used desktop computer, and a bad case of insomnia, I taught myself the basics of music production and mixing. In 2009 I was accepted into the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University.

At NYU I discovered a talent and passion for audio post-production, which led to an internship, then job, at duotone audio group. Since then I’ve worked with countless artists and brands to create some awesome (and award-winning) pieces of music and sound for advertising, film, and TV. I've recorded the cast of the Lion King on Broadway, been credited on an Oscar-nominated film, and found the best way to record a horsehair fiddle (stringed instruments need space!).

I currently live in New York City, where I enjoy reading speculative fiction, shooting analogue cameras, collecting unique instruments, and making Latino-Futurist podcasts… on the rare occasion that I have free time.
