Federico Bonacossa is a composer and classical guitarist based in Miami Florida. He studied classical guitar at the Conservatorio Statale G. P. da Palestrina in Italy before moving to the U.S. in 2001. He holds a master’s degree from the Peabody Conservatory and a doctorate from the University of Miami in classical guitar performance and music theory. He also holds a master’s degree from Florida International University where he studied composition and electronic music. His recent work as a composer explores various forms of interaction between live performers and the computer, the relationship between pitch and rhythm, and the transcription of spontaneous vocal gestures with the aid or the computer. He is the company composer for Dance NOW Miami and is a member of the Miami Guitar Trio.
As a performer he is involved in promoting new music for guitar, especially works that feature electronics. He is currently an Instructor of Music Theory and Musicology at Florida International University.

His music has been performed over one hundred times across the USA as well as in Canada, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, Germany, Thailand, and Cambodia. He was awarded a Fulbright Senior School grant to research in Taiwan and teach National Chiao Tung University for the Academic 2015-16 Year.
