A Life in Music

Artistic catharsis as personal growth

Biography


Davide Gullotto was born on May 22, 1975, in Cernusco sul Naviglio, a town in the Metropolitan City of Milan.
His childhood was surrounded by musical instruments thanks to his father Antonio's music school. At five he loved Rossini's Ouvertures, at nine he composed small piano pieces and at eleven he was enrolled at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of Music in Milan in the viola class.

The 1990s

As a teenager he was struck by the energy of Jimi Hendrix, The Police, Sting, and many other Anglo-American artists, so he started writing songs and playing in the first bands, dreaming of becoming a rock star. Thus he suspended his classical studies to fly to London and set foot in the country of rock, riding a visionary and rebellious dream.

A few years later he began working in various Milanese recording studios for numerous musical productions, mainly pop and instrumental, also learning the art of sound engineering. The recording studio environment was like a second home. In the late 1990s, he spent his time writing and producing music for himself and many independent artists and labels.

The new Millennium

With the new Millennium, he started gigging around rock Milanese venues like The Indian's Saloon, LegendClub, Rockhouse, Scimmie, etc. with various musicians and bands, recording his songs in the studio and making his way. As a singer-songwriter, he participated in various national music festivals of the period, and in the meantime, he resumed his academic career at the music conservatory as a private student.


In 2011, after graduating in piano, he began his activity with the Italian brand DaG®, the acronym of Davide Gullotto, which passes from artistic training to record production, which today has more than 150 released songs, and from composition to arrangement up to audio engineering.

Among his latest releases: 'Infinities Collection' (2022), the collector's edition of 16 piano pieces from the album 'Infinities' (2019); 'Silent Movies' (2017), the album extracted from the musical reworking of four silent films by the famous American actor Harold Lloyd, for the new Italian collection published by A&R Productions; the single 'Amore Sbagliato' (2016), recorded at Metropolis Studio and mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London, and many others still present in the Discography section.

Among the various collaborations, he participated as a pianist in the 'Piano City' latest editions (2018-19), produced background music for television commercials for RTI Music of Mediaset Group (2005-07), as a singer-songwriter, he participated in the Girofestival on Rai 3 TV (2004) and held a series of live concert-lessons for the Lombard satellite channel 'Milanow' (2020).

At present

To date, he has written, produced, and performed music in various genres: classical, pop, rock, jazz, ambient, chamber music, and soundtracks. He owns the DaG® Recording Studio and the independent label DaG® Music Production. Member of SIAE and NUOVO IMAIE, to date his discography is constantly expanding.

Quintessence

The musical journey is a path of self-knowledge in the continuous balance between open inspiration and inner discipline, a synthesis between listening to the infinite cosmos in dialogue with human emotions.
