In 1991, Buccino elaborated an original music system called "HN System". The system integrates composition, notation and performance techniques based on the parameterization of physical actions. In 1993 the composer founded the “Laboratorio Aperto Fatti Sonori”, an ensemble devoted to the execution of his scores. In 1997 he extended his application of the HN System to include sheets of steel. His musical activity ranges over a wide variety of fields: beside his research as experimental composer and performer, Buccino also works for the cinema and the theatre as a composer, interpreter, musical consultant, as a rock, pop and jazz composer, arranger and guitarist, and as a singer-songwriter, busker and music journalist.
