He has worked as a producer, member, and/or engineer with a multitude of signed and independent artists and has worked on sound design for both short and feature-length films. With an abundance of both music and film credits to his name, his releases have been featured in various films, commercials, and TV shows, as well as news outlets including Pitchfork, NPR, Paste Magazine, VH1, MTV, The Onion/AV Club, Stereogum, and Magnet Magazine.
Antonuccio has contributed music and media industry stories for national and regional music stories and regularly interviews national music and media figures.

He oversees the Ohio University South by Southwest experience and coordinates the MDIA Music Production Master Class, an exclusive opportunity which provides a one-week apprenticeship for music production students with Jim Eno, producer and drummer of the iconic band Spoon at his studio Public Hi-Fi in Austin, Texas.
He is also the host of the Scripps Visiting Artist Series, which welcomes leaders in the music industry for on-stage, live-streaming interviews on the campus of Ohio University. Past guests have included Sharon Van Etten, Bob Boilen of NPR Music, Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo, Jim Eno of Spoon, John Paul White of The Civil Wars, and music supervisor Thomas Golubic.

He's helped co-found the Immersive Media Initiative (IMI) in the Scripps College of Communication, made possible through a near-million dollar innovation grant from Ohio University.
