Why do we do it?
Our vision is to create an environment in which artists can express themselves calmly and creatively, dialoguing with each other, actively participating in projects.
Why do we do it? Because we believe in the power of music, because we know that art is a dialogue.
The experience that looks to the future
Founded in 2005 under the name of Kafer Records in Rome, the studio moved to Austria in 2016. Colosseum Sound Factory gave birth to the sounds and words of many „champions“ of international music.
But we don’t like to stop and contemplate the past.
While sinking the roots in our great experience, we look straight to the future, to the new projects, to the great works that have not yet seen the light.
Come to us today and come to see the studio, you could be in our future.
