Luca Sigurtà was born in Biella, Italy, in 1976. Due to his passion for field-recordings and found sounds, he approached experimental music during the late 90s.

In 1999-2000 he made his debut with three self-released EPs which were soon followed by "La Sindrome di Stoccolma" (The Stockholm Syndrome), a work distributed by S'Agita Recordings.

In 2002 he started his collaboration with director Manuele Cecconello. Their interesting multimedia CD-Rom entitled "Terre" was released in a 100 copies limited edition.

Luca Sigurtà also created many soundtracks for Cecconello's short movies, which are often showed during his live sets based on laptop abuse, multiple portable CD players and other electronic gadgets.

He took part to some exhibitions in Biella presenting some of installations and creating soundtracks. His regular live activities include twin laptop-sets with long time friend and collaborator Fhievel.

His music has also recently appeared on theme compilations relesead by Deterrent Industries, Aleatory and Homemade Avantgarde.

Along with Patrizia Oliva (formerly a member of Allun) he is part of the electronic/impro duo Macaya.

His latest full lenght work entitled "La Vera Macchina D'Argento" (...or "The Real Silver Machine", if you prefer...) was co-released as a friendly joint-venture between Afe Records and S'Agita Recordings in June 2004.

"Pocket Progressive", a collaborative work recorded with Claudio Rocchetti and Fhievel, was released on CD by the portuguese label Creative Sources Recordings in February 2005.

In late 2005, along with Tommaso Clerico he founded the weird noise band Harshcore.
