From the cutting edge architecture of each property to the themed scapes and swanky accoutrement, the W Hotels are known for delivering a posh, experience for trendy travelers and party goers. With such a reputation, it should come to no surprise the hotel chain has its own music director to add a unique acoustic flair to the chain's notoriety.
Last week the W-Hotel Buckhead threw an intimate shindig celebrating the release of the hotel's latest music CD, Symmetry - a collection of music compiled by their Global Music Director, style maven Michaelangelo L'Acqua.
Charged with integrating music into the overall brand of the worldwide hotel chain, L'Acqua steps out in bold fashion blending smoky ambient remixes with glam dance tracks for his latest compilation. Symmetry features music from Mike Snow, Little Dragon, Sebastien Tellier and a host of other "Ibiza-inspired" artists.
Before working for W Hotel Worldwide, L'Acqua created atmosphere for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. His production company, Onda produced fashion shows for Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and a host of others.
