Luca Forcucci


Luca Forcucci (CH/IT) is an artist and composer with a focus on perception, subjectivity and consciousness, which he explores through performances, electroacoustic compositions, installations, photography and texts.

He has collaborated with dancers in Brazil and California, with choreographers, with musicians playing indigenous instruments in Southern Africa, with musicians playing contemporary music, with turntabilists, with poets in the previous century (with Jalal of the last poets, opening for Gil Scott Heron, or with Whitman McGowan in San Francisco). He records sonic material during expeditions in the Brazilian Amazon, Shanghai, the Swiss Alps and the Norwegian fjords among others. He also regularly collaborates with neuroscientists on questions regarding the perceptive properties and the field of possibilities of the first-person experience.

Forcucci’s music is published by Subrosa in Bruxelles, Universal music, Cronica Electronica in Porto, Glistening Examples in the USA, Elektramusic in France, Syrphe in Berlin, on his very own label LFO Editions, and now by the Japanese label mAtter.
