Lorenzo Masotto

A pianist and composer based in Italy, his musical journey began when he took up the piano at the age of nine. He graduated from the Conservatory of Verona and studied at the Hochscule für Music Liszt in Weimar, Germany.

After years spent studying composition and jazz he continued his journey, diving into prog and post-rock and founding Le Maschere di Clara. The experimental violin/drums/piano trio has released four albums.

He has also worked on original soundtracks for theater and film and composed two original soundtracks for short films: “Giulia” in 2015 (directed by Carlo Perassi) and “Paradox” in 2016 (directed by Nicolò Filippozzi).

His piece Chrono has been selected for a documentary film about Toronto directed by Alexandra Anderson and produced by Ryerson University that was presented at the Toronto Film Festival in 2019.

His music is a journey into a hybrid and complex world and has been acknowledged by international media such as the BBC and KEXP. He is constantly searching and produces tirelessly, inspired by Nature, in which he often takes refuge.

He has released four LPs: Seta (2015, Alfa music), Rule and Case (2016, Preserved Sound), Aeolian Processes (2017, Dronarivm), and White Materials (2017).

His fifth album, Frames, marks a major evolution in piano and electronic instrumentation and was released on Lady Blunt Records in June 2019.

“My biggest source of inspiration is nature, the most beautiful and fascinating artistic work that exists. During my long walks in the mountains I can find the silence that I need to concentrate all my thoughts towards music. The beauty of the landscapes that I find, the clouds that seem to touch you, give me everything I need to compose.” – Lorenzo Masotto
