Caterina Barbieri

Italian modular synth composer Caterina Barbieri and her Buchla 200 synthesizer form a dynamic duo that cannot be overlooked. Crushing the linearity of time, the Berlin-based artist draws her audience into an extended, hypnotic wave that fractures one’s consciousness and exposes layers of perception never used before.

In her work, Barbieri mostly focuses on minimalism, patterns and repetition, using sequencers to create immersive geometries in time and space. She approaches the practice of music as a cognitive feedback between humans and technology, exploring topics such as machine intelligence and object-oriented perception.

Barbieri applies her eye for detail in the most literal sense, shaping her compositions mathematically on an almost microscopic level. The final result: compelling soundscapes that are most certain to intrigue any audience.

This performance is presented in the framework of SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe).
