Francesco Buccheri

I was born in Bologna on October 27th 1954.

I believe, I love music since then, for my sister Alessandra, who studied piano as a concert performer at the time, would make me listen while she was practicing and as a spectactor at her concerts.

At 8 years old: my very first guitar and the first music lessons! I didn’t liked these, I preferred to try to play my own music and to play the songs that interested me most.

I was 12 during the “rock age”, my attention was all for pop groups such as: Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull and all the other great bands of the time along with the famous songwriters (Bob Dylan, CSNY, Neil Young) etc...

The turning point came with the listening of Pink Floyd’s Atom Heart Mother. The use of the electronical devices fascinated me incredibly. It was so, that I began my resarch about synt and electronical effects in general, but I was also helped by the listening of artists such as Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze and later on Jean Michael Jarre, Kitaro, etc...

After 4 years with the band (Ex Aequo) that I had set up, I decided to go on as a soloist and so I recorded in 1979 an LP by the title Journey, an indipendent production that had excellent also results outside Italy.

At the same time, I began to work with with Rai (Italian national broadcast television) journalists, I wrote background music for them, this, I still do today along with web music, music for documentary films, for plays and for animation theatrical works.

From 1996 I have my personal studio, where I record my own music, that is now being introduced in this web site.
