Lucio Tasca (Palermo, Sicily) is a composer and guitarist.
His music explores micro-differences such as oscillations, imperfections, and cracks that occur within the execution of the musical material, focusing on their potential to act as a form of spontaneous microscopic emergent ornamentation.
He studied composition with Bryn Harrison and Aaron Cassidy at the University of Huddersfield, where he is now undertaking a Ph.D.
Recent pieces have been performed by Francesco Dillon, Ensemble Impronta, Funktion, International Contemporary Ensemble, Christopher Redgate, Dejana Sekulic, OHHe Supercluster, Philip Thomas and Kathryn Williams among others.
Recent album releases include One Breath for solo Flute in Kathryn Williams CD Coming up for Air (Huddersfield Contemporary Records), and as guitarist, music by Ryoko Akama, recorded with Apartment House (Another Timbre) and music by Federico Pozzer (Another Timbre).
