SHAPES - VOL.1 EP RELEASED TODAY
My EP "Shapes vol.1" is finally out!
The work is digitally distributed by Believe Distribution Services and is available on all digital streaming platforms and on www.bluespiralrecords.com.
The EP (the first of two parts in 5 tracks each) takes us along a varied path, in which the forms are revealed through the synaesthetic use of sounds and the alternation of stylistic influences: the latter at moments more classic, others more electronic or "cinematic". The different moods that animate the work lead to a varied sound ranging from a truly minimal piano to pieces in which electronics and beats are intertwined with violin sounds or voices. The conception of the entire work stems from a double influence: on the one hand the Zen philosophy often present in Liverani's work and, on the other, the passion to bring the suggestions derived from a synaesthetic vision back into the musical field. For this project in particular, it was the work of the Chinese photographer “Fan Ho”, with his play of light, that influenced the composition of the songs; an indirect inspiration that is reflected in the use of the material: light as a revealer of forms (hence the title of the Ep), together with a certain photographic texture revived in music.

PRIME NUMBERS RELEASED TODAY
Good morning to all friends! "Prime Numbers" finally comes out today: a song that I had the enormous pleasure of writing together with the talented Andrea Carri. A few months ago we started this collaboration and it was a really stimulating creative process for me that, through the exchange of e-mails and messages in a continuous comparison and mutual stimulation, gave life to this little creature! We decided to propose a trailer dedicated to the world of chess thus creating a link between the numbers, the matrix and the chess schemes. Enjoy!
EAR TO THE GROUND includes TANGLES
among the three neo-classical tunes to help bring calm for winter solstice
"The calm of this track is cathartic. It’s almost like it was written for the express purpose of helping the listener look inward. In a world that has been (for some of us) chaotically boring or, at best, artificially restful, this type of music is exquisite. Spend some time with the easy going, introspective piano work here. Consider meditation."
TANGLES lo-fi piano tapes RELEASED TODAY
A song that I am particularly proud of is out today on spotify! Tangles (lo fi piano tapes) was recorded in my studio on a felt piano. Electronics, which I like to define semi-transparent, rather than decorative, “amplify acoustic structures emerged from the lo-fi recording. It is the first single of an adventure that will lead through the release of two EPs until the release of the physical album in late spring ... but I don't want to reveal too much for now!
ON RADIOAKTIV AS HOT NAME ON THE ITALIAN AND INTERNATIONAL SCENE
Proud to be among the hot names in National and International scene according to Radioaktiv. "Composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Cagliari, Marcello Liverani explores territories of neoclassical music by merging them with sound synthesis. Analog synths, loops and drones in order to investigate the various tonal possibilities. Thus was born a music full of emotions, gentle and refined, result of a mix of influences, from IDM to electronics, passing through the ambient. An artist who will surely delight the listeners of Philip Glass, Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds."
A BEAUTIFUL REVIEW OF “OPENING INNER (B)” BY TOME TO THE WEATHER MACHINE
"The Italian based artist Marcello Liverani recently released an alternate version of “Opening Inner” with this luxurious electro-acoustic composition. An exploration of timbre in it’s various shadings and gradations. “Opening Inner B” allows Marcello Liverani to explore not only the musical landscape opened up but the emotional landscape unfolding between sparse piano notes, aching reverb and strings set to detune heaven. It’s a beautiful and thoughtful piece."
INNER (B) HAS BEEN RELEASED
This is the second work fromthe "Inner" series that investigates the human soul through sound. Deep focuses on sound and its characteristics: the entire piece is an investigation about the timbre, using the spectrum as a genesis of further sounds perceived as reverberations, shades and memories of the principal sound itself. Just as echoes of our inner thoughts. We could say that there's a little bit of French "Spectralisme" inside especially in the first part.
