My Story

My story begins many years ago during those wonderful years! In few months I became one of top artists with the pseudonym Vanethian and featured in famous FLASHBACK2000 compilation! Then more than 100 videogame soundtracks, commercials, short films and more! Now I’m working as Film Music Composer, first film is Hell Trip but I continue to produce albums! After ‘Music in your Soul‘ (Electronic Music Album with different styles and moods) and ‘Beyond Orchestral‘ (an instrumental trip of an hero into a new world, his fight, his love and his redemption) I’m back, this time with Disco Music! Album name is ‘Disco Vibes‘ released on 29 March 2019, followed few weeks later by ‘Funky Sensation‘ a Funk Music trip crossing different styles and ideas but with a Funk rhythm in common.

Manuel Marino


Manuel Marino is a truly exceptional music
composer. His ability to take direction and
compose incredible piece of music makes him a
truly valuable asset to any production company
or studio requiring fantastic music. During my
time working with Manuel, I found him to be an
incredibly patient composer, always willing to go
the extra mile to get the motion picture
soundtrack perfect. His turnaround time is also
exceptional, and produces music very quickly
and accurately. As a person, Manuel is a very
likable man, very kind and considerate. I would
not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
