In this paper, we investigate a continuous family of notions of independence which interpolates between the classical and free ones for noncommutative random variables. These notions are related to the liberation process introduced by Voiculescu. To each notion of independence correspond new convolutions of probability measures, for which we establish formulae and of which we compute simple examples. We prove that there exists no reasonable analogue of classical and free cumulants associated to these notions of independence.
