Corciolli was born in the city of São Paulo and begun his musical studies at 13. Besides the electronic organ and classical piano classes, he developed a deep interest on synthesizers sound possibilities. Two years later, Corciolli formed his first local band which performed some of his first compositions and arrangements.


In 1986, working as a professional musician, Corciolli went to the architecture college, graduating in 1990. During these years, he played with brazilian master bass player Celso Pixinga and with the blockbuster band Espirito Cigano. Also, he produced his first album ALL THAT BINDS US. With this album, Corciolli established the Azul Music Record Company, in 1993.


In 1995, Corciolli released his second album UNIO MYSTICA, a musical piece in 7 movements that presented alchemical texts in Latin, Gregorian Chants and orchestral arrangements. This album brought him international projection, being blessed by Pope John Paul II and released in 27 countries.


In the following years, Corciolli was invited by the Tibetan Monks of Gaden Shartse to perform two remarkable nights at the Latin America's Memorial, at the city of São Paulo. Afterwards, the artist recorded with the Monks the album THE NEW MOON OF EAST, an exquisite meeting between Tibetan Sacred Music and western music. In the year 2000, Corciolli released the collection named TUDOAZUL, that included ten albuns inspired by the main alternative therapies and ancestral systems of knowledge. The whole collection became a national best-seller. Also, Corciolli released the albuns EXOTIQUE (1998), UNIO CELESTIA (1999), ART OF SEDUCTION (2001) and UM OLHAR (2004), THE ASTRAL CITY (2008) and ILUSIA (2008)


With several albums released all over the world, featuring music in collections with Vangelis, Yossou N..Dour, Dead Can Dance, Hans Zimmer, Secret Garden, Era, Enigma, Sarah Brightman, Luciano Pavarotti, Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo among other stars, Corciolli's music is inspired and unique. His work is revealed in the rich subtlety of details which unite the traditional to the contemporary; the acoustic to the electronic and the sensibility to the quality.
