Luca Mauri was born in 1977 near Milan, Italy. From the age of sixteen he has played guitar in different band hardcore-punk/noise (Città Sotterranea, Idioti, MMK…) and approached experimental avant-garde music in the late 90s, with his solo-projects “00” and “looke”.
Luca has also played guitar in “I/O” (2000 – 2010), an improvisation quartet with avant-garde/free-form rock/minimalistic influences, by which he has released two records and has played live with a lot of bands (Liars, William Parker, Giuseppe Ielasi, Zu, Cul de Sac and so on…).
In 2005-2007 he has played bass/guitar/drums in “Two Dead Bodies” duo, devoted to tribal/noise improvisations. Between 2001 and 2006 he has played drums in a post-punk/funk band called “Kokoro Mayikibo”, and recorded a cd co-produced with the Italian label Mila Record.
Today, Luca is playing guitar in the electro-acoustic band “Luminance Ratio”, with Gianmaria Aprile (Ultraviolet Makes Me sick, Fratto9under the sky records), Luca Sigurtà (Harshcore) and Andrea Ferraris (Airchamber 3, Ur,Ulna, John Russel, Sil Muir); in the same time he also collaborates with the artist Eleonora Rossi in video/multimedia performance and installation.
