Caterina Barbieri

Repetition and pattern permutation lie at the core of Caterina Barbieri’s current sonic research. She has composed music for old and new synthesizers as well as for string instruments.Her focus on minimalism in composition arises from a meditation on primary waveforms and exploration of the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of sequencers. By means of synthesis, pattern-based operations and additive canons, her music draws severe geometries in time and space.

Her work explores themes of machine intelligence and object-oriented perception in sound through approaching music practice as an integrative cognitive feedback between humans and technology. She has performed major shows at festivals including Berlin Atonal, Berliner Festspiele’s Maerzmusik, and Norbergfestival as well as compositions for theater and multimedia presentations. The Wire magazine has described her music as “a trip deep within the mothership — hypnotic and beautifully disorientating.”
