Matteo Liberatore

Matteo Liberatore (he/his) is a boundary-pushing guitarist and composer working at the intersection of free, noise, rock and electronic music. Now based in Brooklyn, he spent much of his life in the medieval region of Abruzzo, Italy, amidst dramatic landscapes that are reflected through a performance and composition style of “unsettling beauty” and “striking physicality” (The New York City Jazz Record).
Liberatore is known for his nuanced and precise treatment of timbre, texture, rhythm and gesture—whether through the elegant immediacy of unadorned instrumentation or the affecting dislocation of electronics and preparations. // @matteolibb +
