“It remains to be seen what Renzo Spiteri would be coming up with next, but if one were to gauge his recent shows here and abroad, it seems as if this quiet, unpretentious musician is broadening his horizons incredibly. He seems to have a vision of dynamic change through keen observation of things that may be or may not be around him. After all, his compositions have been featured on BBC Radio 3. Such a feat is a great certificate in itself; but then, Renzo isn’t one to rest on his laurels.” The Sunday Times (Malta)
Renzo Spiteri is “an artiste who constantly surprises” and whose music “touches the soul directly”. An internationally respected experimental electronic artist, composer and musician, Renzo is renowned for his artistic versatility, creative use of sound and unlimited modes of expression. He shares his work base between the UK and Malta, although his own projects as well as collaborations with artistes in all genres of artistic expression take him to different countries around the world. His on-going concern with expanding the musical vocabulary of his performance practice and compositional technique has led to in-depth study of modern technology and techniques to create music that has a strong sculptural and dimensional aspect to it.
In 2004, Renzo spent a 5-week work intensive at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) in Belfast (N. Ireland) as musician in residence, and in 2008 he was appointed National Ambassador to the European Union’s “Year for Intercultural Dialogue”. Renzo is co-founder and co-curator of the new media collective Open Works Lab; artistic director of Għanafest Malta World Music Festival; Cultural Ambassador to Le Meridien Malta; artistic director of the annual music event Teatru Unplugged held at Malta’s National Theatre Teatru Manoel, and an endorsed artiste for Yamaha Drums & Hardware, Paiste Cymbals & Gongs, Tycoon Percussion and Schlagwerk Percussion.
