Luca Ricci (*1992) studied flute, musicology and composition in Italy. Going beyond 20th Century European post-avant-garde, he looks for a synthesis between pitch-based composition and sound sculpture: his technique of “sonic shaping” rethinks the Italian poly-vocal heritage (from Monteverdi to Federico Incardona), turning the expressive power of linear “polyphony” into “multiphony”. Half academic and half self-taught, he developed his syncretic approach by confronting with many different personalities: Riccardo Dapelo, Carlo Alessandro Landini, Aureliano Cattaneo, Stefano Gervasoni, Alessandro Solbiati, Claudio Ambrosini and Dario Buccino. His works are programmed by various institutions and ensembles: Milano Musica, Festival Pontino, Teatro La Fenice of Venezia, Orchestra of Teatro Comunale di Bologna, Ex Novo Ensemble, Divertimento Ensemble, Ritsumeikan University (Kyoto), Mdi Ensemble, Collettivo_21. Finalist in the competitions "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space" (Kyoto) and "Donald Aird" (USA), he won the XXV International Competition "2 august" of Bologna, the Composition Prize of Milano Conservatory and the "Breaking Music Composition Competition" 2020. His works are published by Da Vinci Edition (Osaka) and broadcasted by Italian radio and television (Radio 3 Suite and Rai 5).
