Lucio Menegon is an improviser, composer, guitarist and sonic artist. Born to Italian American parents and raised in the shadow of New York City, he has been playing professionally and on a DIY basis for over 25 years. An intuitive musician, he is comfortable mashing styles, reconciling extremes and dispensing with genre. Recent creative collaborations include improvisations with Danny Frankel, Janie Cowan, Chris Unck, Jason Victor, Steve Shelley and performances with CA based songwriters Myshkin, The Adobe Collective, Spain and Victoria Williams. Described as “Morricone composing surf music on Laudnum, performed at a secret opium den in the basement of CBGB’s”, he continues to find a home for twangy riffs, head scratching noises, quirky pop, trashy rock and layers of ambient sound in his own projects and film soundtracks. He is a member of the Immersion Composition Society, holds a degree in Economics, has a sharp eye for photography and loves a good story. He spends a fair amount of time in Joshua Tree CA, New York City and on the road.
