Jason Vitelli

Born:

With three literate singer-songwriter releases to his credit, it might seem paradoxical that Brooklyn-based Jason Vitelli’s newest project presents his music without lyrics. But as he notes, 1. Ambient Corridors is an inaugural instrumental collection that signifies a return to his roots. ​

In 2003, after his composition and scoring studies, Jason created music for student films, documentaries, and short films, all while working in tandem with an accomplished film composer. Much of the music on this project is selected from this previous period, refined and given new life, as he explains. “A return to form; re-establishing work I’d done years ago and building upon it.”
