Luca PetraccaAdjunct Faculty - Music Production
I was born in Rome, Italy in 1988. I started my musical studies as guitar player, graduating in classical guitar at the conservatory S. Cecilia of Rome. Right after my graduation I began my path in composition, which became very quickly my main interest. In 2011 I moved to The Netherlands to study classical composition and to graduate at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. Here I got in touch with a huge variety of music styles, performances of any kind, people from all around the world that deeply changed my way of approaching music and life in general. Since then, this melting pot of experiences became the core of my musical expression, the starting point of a personal research for a sonic language that could spontaneously represent my-self.
At the end of my student career, after my master degree in composition, I moved to India, to work as head of the music production department at The true school of music and as freelance composer and arranger. Two years in India that represent a milestone in my life path, as professional and as human being. I like to think of my-self and so of my music, as the result of the many different sound influences, life experiences and personal heroes that I encountered on my way; a sonic representation that I always try to bring into my works: film scores, theatre music, orchestral arrangements and music productions.
