Luca Petracca was born in Rome, 1988. He starts his musical studies as guitar player, graduating in classical guitar at the conservatory S. Cecilia of Rome. Right after his graduation, begins his path in composition, which becomes very quickly his main interest. In 2011 Luca moves to The Netherlands to study classical composition at the “Conservatorium van Amsterdam”. Here he gets in touch with a huge variety of musical styles, performances and starts to partecipate in several projects which combine different genres or forms of art. This melting pot of experiences becomes the core of his musical expression and continuous research. Luca’s works are the result of his many different influences, life experiences and personal heroes; from Bach’s counterpoint, to late romantic harmonies, Thom Yorke, folk Italian music, rock and electronic. His strong will to explore new environments, cultures and to work together with different people, brought Luca to be involved in various projects; scoring for orchestras, chamber ensembles, theatre music, soundtracks and collaborating with several artists as composer, arranger and producer.
Along his career Luca always combined an intense teaching activity, working in several music academies, such as the “True school of Music” in Mumbai, the “GuitarAcademy” of Amsterdam and “Arte2o” in Rome.
