Cory Milano is a second-generation music editor who got started in post production in 2006 after completing the Recording Artists Program at Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, California. A California native, Cory’s interest and passion for music started from an early age. As a teen and young adult, Cory enjoyed the challenges of composing, creating, recording and performing his own music at venues around Los Angeles, California. Cory’s electronic/folk music project, which released under the moniker Chloroform Days, allowed him to develop his editing skills and discover ways to manipulate audio to create unique sounds and styles. Cory also spent many late nights as a radio DJ at KPCC, 90.7 FM, where he helped cultivated the Mood II Swing radio show. These experiences served as a natural transition to music editing. He quickly honed his skills using Pro Tools, Abelton and Logic.
Cory’s early career focused on film post production where he served as second music editor on several high profile films including The Grudge 2, Moneyball, Ghost Rider, Lucky You and Spiderman 3, for which he earned a Golden Reel Nomination. In 2010, Cory transitioned into television music editing starting out on the ABC shows Mistresses and Mixology. More recently, among numerous pilots, shows and independent films, Cory was the music editor for 3 seasons of USA Network’s Shooter and 3 seasons of BET Network’s Being Mary Jane. Cory also had the privilege of working with up and coming Director, Joe Penna on his debut feature film, Artic released in late 2018.
