Projects & discography
Libero Mureddu’s ‘Hexad’ is a Helsinki-based ensemble dedicated to the performance of real-time composed music. Hexad brings together professional improvisers coming from a wide albeit often overlapping range of experiences, from classical contemporary to experimental and jazz music.
Chamber Music from Mars
Libero Mureddu (piano and keyboard) and Aino Juutilainen (cello, viola da gamba and electronics) improvise together since 2018.
Tiny & Anxious
Libero Mureddu (piano) and Livia Schweizer (flute) are very good friends. Things they have in common:
being two Italians in Finland
being half from Italy, half from somewhere else (Libero from France, Livia from Switzerland)
irony, especially toward themselves; sarcasm, toward each other
I began working with the Yamaha Disklavier in 2005, and since then I have been active as a composer and as a performer of music written for this instrument.
My first composition for the Disklavier is called 'Déploration sur la mort de G. L.' (2006), an 88-part canon, originally written with Pure Data. In 2017 I began to compose new canons using Supercollider.
Liquid is a music quartet composed of two dancers and two musicians. The group’s particular feature are the dancers thinking and behaving as instrumentalist, producing visual music and interacting with the musicians to create unique sound flavours and to literally project the music in the third dimension of space.
Colombian cellist Sergio Castrillón, Finnish drummer Otzir Godot and Italian-French pianist Libero Mureddu, merging elements of contemporary music and avant-garde jazz, through improvisation. The band was formed in Helsinki – Finland – in early 2015. Their first album TOZCHE consisted of three improvisation sessions during three days at the studio.
My current live setup.
I have been working on this instrument since 2014, first as an attempt to have a satisfactory piano sound when the acoustic instrument was not present in a venue. The initial idea rapidly evolved towards a pianos+synths+effects+loopers workstation.
Libero Mureddu and Moritz Cartheuser started their collaboration in 2013 as the sounding fraction of the multidisciplinary improvisation quartet Liquid and soon began to work in the reduced form of a duo.
Their pieces, inspired by their work with the Liquid Quartet, are homages to spatiality and movement, reflecting the musical background of both performers in jazz and noise-rock as well as electroacoustic and classical music, but being at the same time uncategorizable and never predictable.
Mureddu://:Cartheuser’s debut album is in process and long overdue, a profile of sonic discussion between two improvisors with a rich and exclusive vocabulary.
