Caterina Barbieri is an Italian composer who explores themes related to machine intelligence and object oriented perception in sound through a focus on minimalism
Caterina explores the psycho-physical effects of repetition and pattern-based operations in music, by investigating the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of sequencers to draw severe, complex geometries in time and space. Her solo LP Patterns of Consciousness (Important Records, 2017) has received critical acclaim and been named in several ‘Best of 2017’ music round-ups (Fact Mag, The Wire).
Her work has been leaving its impact on stages from Berlin Atonal, Unsound, Barbican Centre Biennale di Venezia. Her current sonic research investigates the creative use of computation and complex sequencing techniques to explore the artefacts of human perception and trigger temporal hallucinations, by ultimately inducing a sense of ecstasy and contemplation. 2019 sees her release the LP Ecstatic Computation on Editions Mego as well as the launch of her Time-Blind AV shows with Italian multimedia artist Ruben Spini.
