Paco Seco

  • Sku PS

You can hear through his music that he was a student of “Chico de Melchor”, his first teacher, with whom he learnt traditional flamenco and a love of the guitar. A promising classical guitar student with Emilio Carrión as a teacher, he developed with teachers like David Russell, Abel Carlevaro, Leo Brouwer, José Tomas and Roland Dyens. His teachers of flamenco guitar were Rafael Riqueni, Andrés Batista and Antonio Bonilla.Throughout his career he has studied several varieties of music: classical, flamenco, medieval, jazz and contemporary. He has also studied musical electronics, music for cinema and TV, music production and computer recording. 

At a very young age he began to win guitar competitions and he received the honorary prize for guitar from the Conservatorio Superior de Música in Sevilla. 

He  won the IV Young Creation Contest, with which he represented Sevilla in the Lisbon 94 European Biennial show for young musicians.  He was later invited as a young composer for the Workshop in Sarajevo 99, where together with musicians from several different countries, created new music for the Biennale de Giovanni 2000 in Rome. 

When he returned to Spain he went to Barcelona where he worked with Dana da Lúa and Riadh Ahmed on the Azuleomar project (a fusion of gaelic, flamenco and Arabic), bringing together the sounds of flamenco with other world music. It’s from this moment on that his music opened up to other musical and cultural genres giving way to diverse projects that continue to evolve now. After a long time in India, where he studied Carnatic music, both Raga and Tala, he incorporated a new style to his playing and composing. 

He composed music for video creations, short films, dance and theatre. For three seasons between 2006 and 2009 he was resident composer for ‘Producciones Imperdibles’, where he composed original music for three theatre and dance shows. 

Up until now he has recorded twelve CD´s, mostly self-produced, with styles from baroque to contemporary, including jazz influenced melodies and world music. 

In projects such as Cine-Oído/Pacoseco, his collaboration with the Slovene double-bassist Sandi Kragelj, or with the electronic music duo Tensión Co, he has shown his work as a musician open to experimental tones with the use of effects, live loops and electronic instruments. 

His music has taken him to the National Theatre of London, Porto Antico in Geneva, Palace of Fine Arts of Sarajevo, Buitengewoon Festival Doetinchem, Holanda, the beaches of Varkala, Kerala-India, Centro Cultural in Belém, Lisbon, Fête de la Musique in Tangiers, Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, Festival Internacional de Música y Danza in Granada, Circól Maldá, Barcelona and the Real Alcázar in Seville. He has played in countries such as Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, England, Holland, Morocco, India and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
