I am a professional contemporary and classical music performer (www.lucapiovesan.it). I entered the world of audio engineering following the inner necessity of recording myself. I got my technical training at the audio engineering school Audiofficine under the precious guide of Alessandro Rorato (producer, teacher and Ableton Live trainer), and gained experience for some years at Magister Recording Area. Then… a continue discovery, through DAWs, plugins, Ableton Live, multichannel audio, installations, and very recently Max MSP.
My high musical training and international experience (Harvard University, Berklee College of Music, Bayreuther Festspiele, Boston University, Opéra de Lille, Tokyo Opera City Hall, Teatro la Fenice, Teatro Massimo, Ictus Ensemble, Metropolis Ensemble, Neue Vocalsolisten, Brussel Philarmonic Orchestra) help me to deal with the most refined necessities of performers, with the deepest understanding of the music I am working on: I am particularly appreciated for my ability of tailoring sounds to the needs of the performers, from capturing the peculiarities of the sources to the final design of the space.
I have worked for the labels Kairos, Stradivarius, Col Legno, Acte Préalable, as well as with many international artists (see the page “collaborations“).
I am also active in recording and mixing for images (both in stereo and surround), working for commercials, short movies, and cinema. I gained experience as a sound engineer for live situations, sound design, live electronics and live recordings.
I teach Music Technology at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and accordion at Conservatorio di Cosenza.
