Today, Southend-on-Sea’s multi collaborative project Liberez release the projects 8th birth Way through vulnerability on Luke Younger’s London based label, Alter.
.

Liberez is the long term collaborative project of musician and recording engineer John Hannon. Formed in 2003 Liberez took their name from the cover art of a French bootleg MC5 7” which demanded ‘Liberez Wayne Kramer!,’
who was incarcerated at the time of release. This early line up consisted of Hannon, Pete Wilkins, Mick Cain and Kev Hutchins and recorded and self-released three CD-r albums, Liberez 1, Liberez 2 and Paint the Light Black. This line up disbanded in 2009.
.
In 2010, Cumbria-based multi-instrumentalist Tom James Scott met Hannon at the latter’s No Recording Studio in Essex, and soon after relocated to join the Liberez fold, his expansive style and use of space and field recordings bringing about a new direction.  
.
Close friend Nina Bosnic was brought in to the line-up on vocals, and consequent recordings based on Bosnic’s texts became the first official Liberez record, The Letter, a vinyl only release on Luke Younger’s (aka Helm) label, Alter.
2011 The next record, with the same line up ‘Sane Men Surround‘. Originally a limited vinyl press on the label Savoury days was later released on cd by Alter, 2013.
Scott relocated back to Barrow-in-Furness to focus on his own music, and the line-up proceeded to continue as a three piece, resulting in the record All Tense Now Lax for Night School Records in 2015.
.
In 2016, they release This Earthly Difficulty Ep on Humane Pyramid Records. A limited vinyl edition of 50 copies that is A parallel to the album ‘All Tense Now Lax’, a twenty eight minute piece created from unused material, footage and field recordings. It is less concerned with structure and song, and ventures further into landscape and themes generated by it’s counterpart.

.
For Way through vulnerability, John Hannon’s project refreshes the line up and in doing so, expands and further strengthens the multicultural aspect of the project, that is today composed of John Hannon, Matthew Reay ,Iñigo Ugarteburu  and Sylvia Maria Saunder. The new Line-up seeds a new direction by icluding Basque language, Hungarian dialect and ancien Russian.
.
.
The John Hannon signature strings, that have distinguished the project from the beginning of their experimental venture, along with the tempestuous spirit that has certainly taken it’s roots in his taste for the Latino culture, are still undeniably there.
But this release, and without doubt this new Line-up, have been able to contain and master the emphasis of it’s fiery experimentalism.
This is what allow the discovery, or re-discovery of the project today by neophite listeners or ears unaccustomed to projects that have their roots in the pure experimental world.  And only those projects that rely on such sources are able to deliver a unique signature such as this release.
