Here is an overview of the artist Caterina Barbieri from Ekho :: Women in Sonic Art, which I recommend you visit. Thanks to Ekho, Caterina Barbieri is my Todays Discovery and her music fits in well with the Friday Culture Fix.
“Caterina Barbieri (b.1990, Bologna, Italy) is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music. Mostly interested in modular synthesis, three-dimensional spatialisation and psychoacoustic aural sculpture, her music arises from a meditative approach to primary waveforms, microtonality and the polyrhythm of harmonics, on the boundary between drone, minimalism and techno in multichannel systems.
Her minimalistic focus is rooted in the exploration of the stratigraphic potential of voltage-controlled synthesizers, in terms of polyrhythm and polyphony.
Synthesis, texture-based forms and immersive listening are three fundamental conditions for her to enhance an advanced cognitive and auditory art, not based on extrinsic links but solely built on the experience of the spectrum, able to develop our very limited ability of perceiving the vertical domain of music, involving us in a holistic way.” www.caterinabarbieri.com
