While a student at The Hill School, Jerzy’s first co-invention was Cygnet: a virtual orchestra product that was marketed and sold to the Broadway / Touring / Live Theater industry. Recognized for his early business success as a teenager, Mr. Gangi was the first undergraduate ever admitted to Johns Hopkins University for the hybrid computer science and music major — a field previously reserved for masters and PhD students only. While a student, he received the world-recognized Provost’s Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) for music technology research. His work has been reviewed by the New York Times, Wired Magazine, Yo-Yo Ma, Synthtopia, and others.
Mr. Gangi then built a successful advertising boutique in Baltimore, MD, where he oversaw dozens of web-based software development projects, as well as print, direct mail, online advertising, SEO, billboard, radio, TV, and email campaigns.
Long dissatisfied with tools used to make and teach music, in 2011 Jerzy launched Sonic Labs – a music products incubator – with the objective to massively disrupt the market.
In the startup space, Mr. Gangi has previously represented angel investors and negotiated deals with major intellectual property holders. In his spare time, Jerzy enjoys consulting, exercising, fine dining, and spending time with friends.
