Born in Rome in 1986, Edgar Iacolenna began his career path with humanistic and musical studies.
He has more than ten years of experience in the film and audiovisual industry as production sound mixer and boom operator, collaborating with several film and television productions in Switzerland and Italy.
Edgar made several recordings of solo concerts, chamber music, choral and symphonic music, solo and ensemble of jazz music, as well as theater shows, editing the audio post production as well.
Since 2014 Edgar Iacolenna has been “sound technician” instructor in the course of Audiovisual Reportage led by Daniele Segre at the “Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia”(National Film School) in the Region of Abruzzo headquarters.
In 2016 he also edited and wrote the preface of the Italian edition of “The Location Sound Bible” by Ric Viers, for Dino Audino Editors, which has been published into two volumes with the title “Registrare il suono per Cinema e Tv”.
In 2022 he published the book titled "Production Sound Mixer: notes&thoughts" that presents the figure of the production sound mixer through seven interviews with seven internationally renowned sound engineers (several Academy Awards) from different countries.
The book represents the "journey", in a figurative sense, to discover the various ways of understanding this profession, the various ways of approaching the profession of production sound mixer and, therefore, the recording of sound on set.
He has been living in Lugano (Switzerland) since 2015.
