Luca Calabrese is a musician, researcher, composer, experimenter. In recent years, he has worked diligently on the sound of ambience.

Over the years his vision of music has gradually moved away from traditional and academic classical stereotypes, embracing a minimalist and strongly intimate vision.

The productions created letting themselves be inspired by the places, tell stories, blend with the spaces, taking on cold colors or warm shades in relation to the surrounding environment.

 

For over 30 years on international stages from Chicago to Mexico, from Canada to Japan, France, England, Spain, Portugal, Sweden. The musical research has become more and more personal, the influences of the places have contributed to create a contemporary language, the acoustic instrument, the trumpet and the electronic and electroacoustic sounds become real multimedia and multisensory sound installations.
