Over the years, Simone has meant music as a possibility of communication, as a result of personal inspirations, as a bridge for getting in touch with people. He considers music as a vital source for reaching interior wellness, as a way to communicate successfully, as a means to help others empower themselves through sounds and creative languages. The variety of experiences and musical stimuli has brought Gatto to research the music potential together with the Italian University of Lecce on an ever-increasing
The results have led to the organization
of several seminars and workshops, happening in between Italy, Germany and Holland, in which artists and music industry experts examine the relationship between sounds and emotions from diverse perspectives. The tangible findings and collected depositions has been published in late 2017 on a book where the musical context he’s studied and lived, has been offered to the world of music enthusiasts.
In March 2019 he obtained a master’s degree certificate in Cymatic Therapy from Cymatic Technologies (Atlanta), an advanced sound technology method which applies to identify the precise combinations of frequencies associated with healthy tissue and organ systems. In June of the same year he became a non- verbal therapy technician based on Rolando Benenzon’s Music Therapy model and later in the same year, he obtained the certificate of behavioral technician of the Applied Behavior Analysis method.
The two integrated approaches constitute a psycho- pedagogical balance in the approach that Gatto proposes when working with children who suffer from autism and various behavioral disorders.
