Patterns of Consciousness
Amongst the new blood in modern ‘Made in Italy’ electronic music, Caterina Barbieri develops a study focused on the use of old and new synthesisers and string instruments.
Her minimalism derives from a reflection on the original waveforms and an exploration of the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of sequencers, elements through which she transforms music into severe geometries articulated in time and space.
Her latest and well-received album, Patterns of Consciousness, is here presented live as Barbieri grinds down, decomposes and recomposes an impressive variety of patterns to give life to electronic structures that seem to hypnotise the listener, if not only to surprise with new and destabilising fractures. The environment unites implosive techno to shape an enigmatic and magnetic universe
