about

Luca has been writing and performing music since the sixth grade, when he formed a band called Füss with a friend. Now 16, he started this project a little over a year ago, when he had the idea to create a record by marrying music he had been composing at the piano with several poems he had written. Over time he would refine and develop these sketches into full-fledged songs, and string these songs together with instrumental interludes. The result is an engrossing, strikingly original listening experience that owes about as much to Radiohead's In Rainbows as it does to David Bowie’s Low. Pillars, which features Luca singing and playing piano and keyboards, embodies a style influenced by rock, jazz, and classical music alike.

lyrics

The streets which cluttered and clandestine strain,
The air with pandemonium entomb,
And mold the maelstrom matchless but mundane
In car-horn clamor, noxious neon fumes
Do not on any block contain relief
For sentimental screams, or passions blind
Nor does the traffic ever cease and  seize
The seas of shirking man or womankind
With silence sphinx-like slithering between
The ears that dot the countryside of skull
And never does the skyline broad careen
Monotony to ground and structures cull
And yet as I alone do meditate
My mind is shapeless; endless is my state
