‘Children of the Universe’ - first release for her own ambient label Silent Frequencies - is the new work of Ibiza-based Italian
composer Costanza Francavilla. Inspired by the Original Motion Picture soundtrack she wrote for the docu-film by Camille Budin
where a NASA astrophysics guide a group of children on the Swiss Alps to discover the Universe.
Reverb drenched synth melodies and evocative cellos float between the cosmic sounds of vibro-acoustic instruments - such as Crystal
Pyramids, Tibetan Singing Bowls - and the use of music toys of the composer’s little girl, bringing the listener into a dreamlike
interstellar dimension. Born in Rome and based in Ibiza, Costanza Francavilla is an Italian composer and music producer. She combines the
use of analog / modular synthesizers and sound manipulation mixing electronica with classical music, with an evocative
and minimalist approach.
Her sultry vocals and electronic dreamlike compositions fascinated Massive Attack member Tricky, with whom she
collaborated for several years as a singer and co-producer. He would referred to her as 'the female version of me’
.At young age she studied classical guitar at the Santa Cecilia conservatory of Rome.
She holds a bachelor degree in Architecture from the Westminster University of London and University La Sapienza of
Rome, with a thesis in Acoustic Physics.
Throughout her carrier she's been performing with many acts in prestigious festivals and venues around the world
including Royal Festival Hall, Glastonbury (UK), Sonar (ES), Montreaux Jazz Festival.
In the mid 2000 she moves to Brooklyn where she founded ZEROKILLED MUSIC - a record label and artist's collective -
home of a sound that floats between electronic, contemporary classical and experimental music specializing in
compositions for film and visual media. While living in NYC she’s been producing and collaborating with several
underground Brooklyn artists including No Surrender, Apollo Heights/ The Veldt from the Tv On The Radio afropunk
scene.
She produces and writes music for movie trailers and her credits include “Blade Runner 2049”, (starring Ryan Gosling
and Harrison Ford), “Counterpart”, (Starz TV Show with Oscar winner J.K. Simmons) “The Hunger Games”, “The
Beguiled” (by Sofia Coppola).
As a film composer her recent works include “Friedkin Uncut” (official selection doc-classics at Venice Film Festival

Coppola, Damien Chazelle; “The End of Time” by visionary film-maker Peter Mettler (TIFF Selection - featuring music by
Robert Henke and Richie Hawtin); “S is For Stanley” about Stanley Kubrick (winner at Davide di Donatello); “Free
Men” about death row inmate Kenneth Reams premiered at the International Festival of Human Rights;
Her music has been featured in advertising campaigns such as Cadillac, Netflix and US TV Shows such as Emmy
Awards winner CSI among others.
Since she moved in Ibiza in 2016 she’s been exploring ways of vibroacoustic & sound-wave therapies that include the
use of meditation instruments such as Tibetan Singing Bowls, Chrystal Pyramids, Hand Pans.
Her ambient live set includes such instruments combines with her vocals and modular synthesizers, guiding the
audience into a dreamlike atmosphere through Binaural Beat stimulation in Theta brainwave frequencies.
With the use of wireless headphones, Costanza’s live performance becomes an intimate sound-journey exploring the
pulsating beat of Theta Waves, waves that are generally associated with deep relaxation, meditation, creativity
and intuitive awareness.
She’s launching a new record label that will be the home for her experimental /ambient works (including the upcoming
releases “Children of The Universe” and “Encoded Dreamers” out in Winter 2019) and sound-art projects dwelling
in the contemplative electronic and contemporary-classical realm.With her family she lives in the country-side of Ibiza
where she founded IbizaBloomStudio - a recording studio/ film editing suite and artist residency.
