 Curriculum Vitae

            I was born on 25th October 1964 in Győr. I was christened Vince Zoltán Laczó, but my Vince first name I used only later as a composer. I completed my primary and secondary schools in my home town. Firstly I started to learn playing the piano and guitar, but officially as music school student contrabass became my main musical instrument. At that time I started playing the bass guitar as well. In my teens I played music in jazz-rock bands and paralel in the school chamber orcestra. In my later musical carreer the genre duality has been renaining.

Since 1982 I continued my studies in Bartók Béla College of Musical Art, Budapest so I took my final exam in College of State Ballet Institute. Between 1984 and 1988 I was a member of several bands, eg. the Rock Theatre Band, and other jazz and rock bands. I did my military service in Philharmonic Orchestra of Zrínyi Miklós Military Academy.

In 1991 I obtained a graduation as jazz artist in Liszt Ferenc College of Musical Art at Jazz Faculty. My master subject teacher was Balázs Berkes, I learnt orchestration from Károly Friedrich. At the field of theoretical studies I thanked the most to János Gonda.

Since 1991 I worked as theatre musician in Germany - intermittenly - to 1994. At the end of the 80’s my interest turned to composing, I started post- colt-college trainings, I thanked the most - besides János Gonda - to István Bogár’s professional guidance. In 1994 I obtained a composing scholarship of Berklee College of Music so I could expand my knowledge at a short course in London.

My first important art-work which was arranging of „Jónás könyve”(Jonas’ Book) titled rock-opera shown in 1991 at Budapest Spring Festival was published and recorded in CD format in 2000.

My first „real” performance in 1995 „ Éjszaka” (Night) titled choral work was composed for a poem by Miklós Radnóti was performed int he Music Academy Hall sang (introduced) by the choir of the Institute.

Between 1994 and 1997 I was a composer of nature and instructional films and series of Vi-Dok Studio and to 2001. The films made in Vi-Dok studio were shown in Szív Tv and M-Sat channels. When the two channels went bankrupted, my working possibility discontinued. Because of it I became a music teacher at Lisznyay Szabó Gábor Music School Veresegyház since 1997.

Between 1997 and 1999 I completed the 5 semestered wind band upper master course organised by the Hungarian Institute of Adult Education. There- beside István Bogár, László Marosi conductor was my most important teacher, moreover I could attend on more international courses held by famous foreign professors (eg. Bob Gifford, Ronald Johnson, Jan-Magnus Dahle).

Between 1999 and 2002 I was the artistic leader and conductor of Red One House Big Band consisted of amateur musicians from Gödöllő, Dány and Veresegyház, and jazz teachers of  F. Chopin Music School of Gödöllő.

After 2000 I got involved deeper into religious music and paralel the Catholic Church, so I applied for being a teacher of religion major of Sapientia Theological College in 2003. I got my degree in 2007. The topic of my thesis was the history of and the possible teacing methods of religious music lead by Dr Lukács Áment.

From 2004 - when it was founded - I became musical editor and producer in the Hungarian Catholic Radio.

I’m a member of Hungarian Composer's Union,  Hungarian Jazz Federation, Artisjus, and Society of Creative Musicians.
