Born in Locarno in 1972, Lara has been interested in the world of music since childhood, first studying piano and then classical guitar under the guidance of Dante Brenna. But it is through a meeting with Nick Beggs (Kajagoogoo, Steven Wilson, Steve Hackett, Rick Wakeman…) that Lara discovered a passion for electric bass that then led her to play bass in various local bands.
After moving to London in 1991, Lara graduated as a recording engineer from Media Production, Ltd. Her training experience brought her closer to the world of analog recording (24-track tape and analog direction) which she still prefers today. Lara continued her specialization with numerous master classes and working with international professionals including Bruce Swedien (Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Count Basie, Herbie Hancock…) and Mick Guzauski (Daft Funk, Madonna, Talking Heads, Jennifer Lopez).
Lara founded Lemura in 2007 with the collaboration of RSI (Radiotelevisione svizzera), the Italian language public broadcasting organization of Switzerland headquartered in Lugano, where she has worked since 1998 as a sound engineer. To date, Lara counts among her collaborations numerous recording and mixing projects with international artists and record companies such as ECM.
