London, UK. July 1976.
Luc Suarez grew up in and around London’s 1990’s eclectic music scene. A prodigious talent on the electric guitar, in his early twenties, his musicianship brought a signature combination of emotion and technical virtuosity to avant-garde, underground cult groups such as Snorkel, Charley Marlowe and Invisibles, in folk-rock-grunge venues like Subterrania, The 12 Bar Club and The Kashmir Klub. As interested in composition and theory as performance, Luc studied at the Thames Valley University/LCM with Adam Gorb, Martin Ellerby and Eddie Harvey. After graduation, he worked as composer’s assistant for multiple Bafta Award winner Murray Gold on many projects including “Clocking Off“, “The Second Coming“, “Dr. Who” and “Torchwood“. He also took on varied session work around the London area, mainly for Film & TV, gaining valuable experience in the relationship of composer to musician and deepening an understanding of the possibilities and rewards of this collaboration.
