David Frangioni

Few people in the world of music technology can claim the amount of experience and credits that David Frangioni has amassed. When David was just 7 years old he started his musical career as an aspiring drummer. By the time that he was 15, David was playing full-time in clubs around New England, experimenting with electronic drums and catching the music technology bug!

Immersing himself in all aspects of technology, David quickly became a leader in the music industry in digital audio and video technology, computer based workstations, and MIDI systems. David has earned the respect of music industry colleagues across the globe and is considered a pioneer in the surround sound business both as an installer, consultant, and mixing engineer. David co-produced & engineered the first 5.1 digital surround sound music mixes ever on CD for DTS in 1995.

David is a multi-platinum award-winning engineer/technologist for Ozzy Osbourne, Shakira, Sting, Rascal Flatts, Ricky Martin, Rolling Stones, Elton John & hundreds more. In 1989 David began serving as the chief technologist for the group Aerosmith; his relationship with the band has grown through the years and continues to this day.

He has built most of their personal recording studios and high-end A/V systems. He served as their in-house engineer for albums such as "Get a Grip," "Big Ones," "South of Sanity," and "Nine Lives."

David gained worldwide exposure as the official technologist for "The Osbournes" appearing in multiple episodes of their hit MTV show. Ozzy even jokingly referred to David as "The Rocket Man, only happy when he has a fuse box in his hands!"

David co-produced and programmed two best selling Sample CD's (Dance/Industrial I & II) then released follow-up Sample CD's with Steve Smith, Todd Sucherman and Brian Frasier-Moore respectively.

2012 saw the creation of IDA, Inspire & Develop Artists Program, a passion of Rudy Perez, Jon Secada, Mark Hudson & David to develop artists to their highest potential.
