FROM BIRTH TO THE WILD
"I've always believed that music for games or films is the Director's voice speaking directly to the players or audience through my musical notes.
With great sound, people can believe in anything.
Antonio Teoli is an award-winning music composer widely known as a Brazilian pioneer in Game Audio dating back to 2002. Teoli was in the first graduating class for Game Design at Universidade Anhembi Morumbi in Latin America. Since then, he has enjoyed scoring across all screens including over 450 games, animated cartoons and feature films.
Notable projects include the Taikodom franchise, which to date is the biggest MMORPG developed in Brazil. As the Audio Director and sole composer, Teoli wrote 6 hours of music, provided sound design, and recorded voiceover actors in São Paulo and Los Angeles. Other projects include Sonic 30th Anniversary, Marvel Future Revolution Symphony, Nintendo Good Job!, Dolmen, Stormbound, Nailed-It!, Angra, The Sandbox, Finding Monsters, Lottie Dottie Chicken, Felipe Andreoli, Graham Bonnet, Noblesse, Takt Op.

Teoli is the founder of Sounds of the Earth, the world's first company specializing in capturing sounds from indigenous and native communities. His first project in the series is The Amazonic, featuring tribal instruments from the Brazilian Amazon. Teoli and his team are immersed in social causes. They donate a substantial portion of the proceeds to supporting not only the natives, but also neglected animals in need of medical attention and shelter. He is also the founder of Andromeda Sound, a company specializing in audio production for games, movies and TV. He launched Game Audio School in 2017, and established courses to teach game music and sound design for the Brazilian community. The company is now expanding to a global audience by creating new courses in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Teoli is a member of Big Festival Advisory Board Audio Committee, Game Audio Network Guild, Society of Composers and Lyricists, and Composer’s Diversity Collective.
