Federico De Caroli (born August 7, 1964 in Savona, Italy) is an italian pianist, composer and music producer. Mostly known with his official alias Deca, used for the largest part of his discography, he's considered one of the greatest italian contemporary composers. He's an established producer of electronic music and ambient music who worked in the multimedia, theatrical, broadcasting and advertising field. His productions are mainly published and distributed in the whole world by relevant brands like [APM Music][1] and [KPM Music][2]

Grew up as a classical piano player in the 70’s, he started to experiment his personal style in the middle of the 80’s, playing synthesizer and using the first popular music softwares. He started his professional career as Eugene Deca with a short inroad in [Italo disco], producing one of the most famous songs of this genre: Clock War published in 1985.[3] Then his route began to get inspired by [Kosmische Musik] and electronic composer like [Jean-Michel Jarre] and [Vangelis]. His debut albums Alkaid and Synthetic Lips are very rare and high-valued records, today (over $ 600 each copy)[4]. Furthermore, these albums have been recently reprinted for collectors by various international labels[5] De Caroli's compositions are found in many international commercial spots and multimedia, for famous companies like [Novartis] and for important movie trailers ([Marvel]). He keeps on alternating electronic and experimental music to piano music. He has played live with many known pianists in various festivals (like [Riccardo Zegna]) and he has published solo piano albums. He's a noted independent music journalist, too. He has signed various editorials about electronic music instruments and various interviews to famous protagonists of the '80s scene, like [Lol Tolhurst] from [The Cure], [Clan Of Xymox] and [Christian Death][6]

He has published 15 official studio albums[7] and he has branded many compositions for RAI - the national public broadcasting company of Italy - theatrical productions and film score.[8]
