Searching for equilibrium between classical harmony and the sound of modern music, Rule and Case is a sequence of chords and effects that arrives at the counterpoint between tonal precision and “atonal” freedom – between acoustic instruments and electronics, between the past and present. “Every piece I write comes from a particular moment of my life, an emotion, a meeting, a walk, a picture or a photo that I’ve seen,” says Lorenzo.

Lorenzo Masotto’s journey with music began at the age of nine when he started playing piano. Graduating from Conservatorio di Verona, he consequently started studying composition and jazz. Lorenzo also plays in a prog/post rock band called Le Maschere di Clara, directs a male voice choir, writes music for film and theatre, and teaches piano and composition. “I’ve never only thought about writing in just one music style,” he says, “I love all music, and everything I write increases my confidence and ability to write from a wider perspective.”
Lorenzo Masotto is an Italian pianist and composer from Verona. Rule and Case is his first album on Preserved Sound.
