What our clients are saying:
I cannot say enough about the fantastic experience I had in working with MarcoCo. during the production of my documentary film. The original score that Marco composed and recorded for my film was nothing short of breathtaking. His music is filled with emotion and intimacy, and it turned out to be a perfect fit for my film. I'm also grateful to Terri for her expert work as musical supervisor, which she handled with just the right amounts of grace, diligence and good humor. MarcoCo is a class act from top to bottom, and I can't wait to work with them again on other projects.– Steven Pressman, Director and Producer, 50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus
Marco and his partner, Terri, aren't just a talented team capable of handling all things sound and music with the highest level of professionalism...over many years of working together, they have become some of my most trusted creative collaborators. I look forward to working with them on projects for years to come. –Jacob Kornbluth, Director, "Inequality For All" & "Haiku Tunnel"
The challenge in writing how I feel about working with Marco and Terri is that I might run out of superlatives! Through movie, theater and television projects, working with them has always been a joyful, magical experience. They do such brilliant work, and they work so incredibly hard, that I get inspired to make my own work better. If I could wish only one thing for my fellow artists, it would be that they have a chance to collaborate with the d'Ambrosios! (And don't get me started on Marco's mom's cooking...) –Josh Kornbluth, Monologuist, Producer/Director, "Haiku Tunnel", "Red Diaper Baby", "Love & Taxes", "Andy Warhol: Good For The Jews?", "The Mathematics of Change", "Sea of Reeds", "The Josh Kornbluth Show"
Marco is just a dream to work with. Which is why I've trusted him with my films Blink and This Dewdrop World. In both cases, he immersed himself in the rhythm, texture and themes of the films and created stunningly beautiful musical scores. Marco possesses singular depth and originality -- and warmth and wit on top of that. I can't recommend him highly enough.–Elizabeth Thompson, Producer/Director, This Dewdrop World
Outstanding company to work with - really knew their business and coupled this knowledge with a personal and intimate service. It was so cool, MarcoCo. Studios created a demo for us, track by track then mixed the demo to a vehicle equipped with our Sony audio system.–Ian Hubbard, Global Director, Sony Automotive Entertainment Solutions America
