In addition to collaborating with Tuvan throat singers Huun Huur Tu (dubbed "a milestone recording in Tuvan musical tradition" BC Blog Critis, and "one of those rare projects where different cultures beautifully collide" Global Noize), Rizzo also co-founded the groundbreaking world/electronic act Niyaz (with three #1 iTunes albums), and contributed original music to the David Lynch Foundation album alongside Moby and Peter Gabriel. Rizzo has released his own solo electronic albums: Lost Art of the Idle Moment and The Space Left Behind. His music can also be heard in numerous movies and hit TV shows from CSI Miami to True Blood.
As member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, Rizzo served on the board of Governors & Trustees (Grammy) and is on the Producer & Engineering Advisory Board.

On September 23rd Rizzo will be the special guest for the Animal Collective with Flying Lotus and Huun Huur Tu concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
