Vincenzo Lamagna

Vincenzo Lamagna is a musician, composer, and producer. Born and raised in Naples, he has lived in London since 2008. 

His work pushes the boundaries of conventional music, combining raging guitar driven rock with minimalistic ambient soundscapes, fierce pulsing drumming, and elements of classical music.

He has worked with artists including Mysteries of the Revolution, Twisted Tongues, Sean O’Brien, Esther Dee, and Reena Green. He has also recorded two albums with his band After They Left (After They Left, Little Sheep).

He recently finished recording his sixth solo album. Solo discography includes The World At The End Of The World, Ki, A Thousand Shepherds, Requiem, Until The Lions (yet to be released), Kingdom (yet to be released).

Vincenzo works extensively creating sounds for contemporary dance. He joined Hofesh Schechter Company in 2010 and toured Political Mother worldwide until 2014, playing in venues including Sydney Opera House, Théâtre de la Ville, Sadler’s Wells, La Villette, and HKCC. He also played guitar on Sun.

He began collaborating with Akram Khan in 2014, writing music for The Rashomon Effect (National Youth Dance Company). He composed and sound designed One Side To The Other (The Lowry), and composed the score for Until The Lions, a full length piece that premiered at the Roundhouse London in January 2016, and will tour worldwide until December 2018.

Additional collaborations include Scottish Dance Theatre, Phoenix Dance Theatre, ACE Dance and Music, Beijing Contemporary NINE Dance Theatre, Carlos Acosta, John Ross, and Jose Agudo.

Vincenzo is currently co-directing and scoring a new experimental dance piece called Through & Out² with choreographer Jorge Crecis, which began an underground tour in October 2016.
