Respirano Records


is a music production and publishing company established in 2020 in New York City.

Yes, we’re born in 2020, when nobody was printing albums and no bands were performing. Our artists should show the same kind of bravery.

We are based in upper Manhattan, but focused on acts and bands coming from all across the globe, living between the realms of psychedelic rock and avantgarde.

Composer, performer, sound designer, Luigi Porto was born in Italy and currently resides in New York City. His musical production spans from rock to electronics, from film music to orchestral and opera. 

Other than Respirano Records, his solo and band albums are released on Cold Current Prod., Snowdonia Dischi, Cineploit, and distributed on Audioglobe and Light in the Attic. 

His notated music has been performed at venues worldwide (Carnegie Hall, Cannes La Croisette, Casino di Sanremo, Opera America to name a few) and films he scored have been screened at most major festivals worldwide (Cannes, Shanghai, BAFTA Santa Barbara and others).

Luigi also founded Respirano Studio in New York City, a film post production company working exclusively on sound for art cinema.


A native New Yorker, Ray Lustig is a genre-fluid composer-performer creating for live stage, recording and live internet performance.  The central ethos of his work is connection—from the collaborative connections that energize and invigorate creative work to themes of connection in his work. 

Ray’s production contains orchestral works, chamber, solo and the opera Semmelweiss. He teaches Composition and Advanced Composition at Juilliard Evening Division.
