This is me
Luca Fagagnini is a music composer for film, TV, commercials, trailers and video games. His musical style blends beautiful acoustic and orchestral instruments with modern unique synthesisers and electric guitars, ranging from hybrid epic orchestral to emotional and delicate drama, upbeat commercial pop and atmospheric, reflective alternative folk, with a common core element: tell a story.
Growing up in Verona, Italy, Luca has been amazed by the narrative power of music from a young age, spending hours and hours listening to soundtrack albums of motion picture scores and eventually deciding that music would be his life.
After many years spent learning to play guitar, writing songs in various bands and an Higher National Diploma in Popular music, he moved to Leeds, UK, where he studied music production at the Leeds Beckett University, graduating in 2017 with Distinction. During these years Luca met and learnt from legendary producers such as Ken Scott, Phil Hardings and Steve Parker, creating contacts that would land him production music placements with Sony/ATV, EMI and Universal.
Luca has worked on various short films, composing original music for the award winning AlGa’Aila in 2019, for the short drama Bruised Reflection, shortlisted at the Nightetc Edinburgh film festival, but also trailers for books, and commercials.
In 2020 he worked with the team of developers at WhippedUP_Gaming, conceptualising and composing original music for the horror video game Prisoner 518.
Later in 2020 he composed the score for the feature thriller/drama Times & Measures.
In addition to composing music for media, Luca is also a producer and, in 2019, he collaborated with American singer-songwriter Melissa Otero in the production of Erotomania, joining her in her European tour as a session guitarist after the release of the album.
In 2019 Luca joined Velvet Green Music’s roster of composers, creating music for their catalog in between projects.
Luca Fagagnini currently resides in Reading, UK.
