Dario Buccino (Roma, 1968) is a composer, instrumentalist, vocalist, teacher, theorist and designer of musical instruments. His research focuses on the most experimental forms of composition and extends all the way to music for theatre, dance, visual art and cinema, also embracing improvisation, the song form, music teaching, street performance and collaborations with artists in the rock, jazz and pop scenes. He created the HN System®, a musical system based on the parameterisation of performative process. The HN System enters into the corporeal and mental act which constitutes the performance, breakes it up into parameters and recomposes it into polyparametric strata: in this way, performative power becomes compositional architecture. He designed the HN Percussion® (HN Steel Sheet, incCubo, Grande incCubo), a family of musical instruments that involve the performer’s entire body in sound creation.
