Arch. Dario Paini
Dario Paini complete its professional education at the PhD between the Politecnico of Milan and the DTU of Lyngby (DK), with a thesis on the acoustics of squares (agorà acoustics), and specializes in the acoustic and architectural design of environments dedicated to music (recording studios / production, mix, mastering, etc.), concert halls, churches, etc.
The first real assignment arrived 10 years ago from Pino Pischetola, one of the well-known sound technician in Italy, for its Studios Pinaxa. “He said he wanted a studio that doesn’t look like a studio but a living room, because musicians have to feel at home. So you’ll listen as the people that will buy that disc. Less surgical but more realistic listening. Lesson that I have always carried with me”- Said Dario Paini in an interview.
