Paolo Ciro

Redattore

Si occupa di recensioni e cura la serie di approfondimenti dal titolo "Storie di Produttori", che spiega dischi importanti attraverso la storia di altrettanti personaggi dietro il vetro dello studio di registrazione.

Scrive di musica da quando è nata la sezione spettacoli del giornalino d'istituto alle scuole superiori, affiancando incidentalmente la passione patologica per gli strumenti a corda e l'hard disk recording (fino a gestire uno studio di registrazione a Torino nei primi anni duemila).
Molto più che incidentalmente, è informatico.
Scrive di sè in terza persona perchè ama i biopic.

È autore del libro Pictures Of Me - L'adolescenza di un dark di provincia.
