Pierpaolo Lucchesi - Studio Assistant / Composer
Born in 1984, I started to learn music at the age of 14 with Antonio Berenato (currently teacher at Monder Music Institute of Messina).
Five years later I moved to Rome learning music theory lessons, exercises, ear trainers at Percento Musica for one year. Then I decided to improve my sound recording knowledge following a sound engineer course at Biplano Studio Recording for two years.
I grew up in music environment playing rock/blues music with several band, taking inspiration from artists and musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and more.
My passion for music was enriched by different styles like funky, electronic and classical music.
If my past was influenced by rock/metal music, now I’m writing and listening to modern music, especially electronic tracks made by synthesizers, loop and samples.
I do love to compose music with different styles mixed together, writing guitars and synthesizers arrangements, being always open-minded according to the kind of music and inspiring feelings.
