Valerio Cosi (February 7, 1985 in Taranto) is an Italian saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist who has worked with several international labels in the 2000s (decade). His works have elements of free-jazz, electronic music, krautrock, psychedelic rock and ethnic music.
Cosi began to produce music in the late 1990s, some of his early recordings appeared in the very limited release called "The Three Faces Of Moongod" (2006).
In 2006, Brad Rose, head of the Digitalis Industries label, persuaded Cosi to release a demo master called "Immortal Attitudes" under his sub-label Foxglove, the album came out in July of the same year. Soon after, Cosi launched a long list of releases on different labels: "Pulga Loves You" on Fire Museum Records (a collaboration with Vanessa Rossetto, called Pulga), "The Three Faces Of Moongod" (Ruralfaune), "Conference Of The Aquarians" (recorded with Enzo Franchini) on Last Visible Dog, two albums with the Italian electronic musician Fabio Orsi ("We Could For Hours" and "Thoughts Melt In The Air") on A Silent Place and Preservation, a split 7-inch with Italian experimental duo My Cat Is An Alien, the trilogy of "Freedom Meditation Music" on Ruby Red Editora/Oneiros/Students Of Decay and the acclaimed work "Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock" on Digitalis Industries.
In January 2008, he toured Europe with the Portuguese band Os Loosers.
In 2009, Cosi signed a 5-years contract with Porter Records (USA), which released his first compilation of solo works called "Collected Works". In the same year, due to unspecified personal reasons, Cosi stopped making music.
In late 2011, he announced a new solo work called "Tuinals" through his Facebook page.
