Marco Di Meco (born February 5, 1982 in Chieti) is an Italian flute player, composer, music producer and writer.
His interest in music began with a traditional musical instrument handed down to him by his paternal grandmother. He then decided to study the transverse flute and after a year of private study, he was admitted to the "L. D'Annunzio" Academy of Music in Pescara where he studied the instrument with Sandro Carbone and obtained a diploma. In the same year he began his career as a solo artist playing W.A. Mozart's KV313 concert.
During his military service he played the flute in the band of the Livorno Naval Academy. He then continued his music studies at the Swiss-Italian Music Academy in Lugano with Mario Ancillotti where he obtained a diploma in "Interpretation and Performance". At this time he began to write his first verses. He completed his studies at the Italian Flute Academy in Rome with Angelo Persichilli.
He gained important experience playing in symphonic orchestras with illustrious conductors such as Luis Bacalov, Lu Jia, Giorgio Bernasconi, Bruno Tommaso and others playing in many concert hall in Europe. He has attended several workshops of Afro-American music organized by the Columbia College Chicago and the Berklee College of Music.
On November 2013 he signed with Wide Sound label to record his first album 5 Colori as a solo artist. This album was followed by the album Rosalinda released in 2015 for the same label. He is present in the 10 best Italian jazz flutists rewarded by JAZZIT Awards 2015.
In February 2018 he published the album "Against capitalism Première Symphonie". In this work a new form of musical writing is explored which he calls a hybrid form. In fact, different and distant musical genres are present within the three tracks, such as dodecaphonic music, R&b and swing. In November 2018 he published the plaquette of poetry "Rime" (GEDI Gruppo Editoriale).
