Caterina Barbieri IT, Cassauna

Caterina Barbieri (b. 1990) is an italian composer and performer of electroacoustic music. Mostly interested in modular synthesis, three-dimensional spatialisation and psychoacoustic aural sculpture, her music arises from a meditation on primary waveforms, microtonality and the polyrhythm of harmonics, on the boundary between drone, minimalism and techno  in multichannel listening environments. Her minimalistic focus is also rooted in the exploration of the stratigraphic potential of voltage-controlled synthesizers,  in terms of polyrhythm and 
Barbieri's music  "reveals the potential present in each singular tone- as well as the movement of a piece as a whole- to envelop the listener with little regard for linear time. Each sound is both a piece of a larger whole- an ever-fluctuating stream of techno-inflected minimalism- and a world unto itself, rich with texture and resonance that draws the listener in with a magnetic pull."  (Adhoc Magazine)
Caterina Barbieri  holds a diploma in classical guitar and a bachelor’s degree in electroacoustic music from the conservatory of Bologna, Italy (plus an exchange programme at the Royal University of Music in Stockholm, Sweden) with a thesis about 3D spatialisation and the perception of time, space and sound spectrum in vertical music. She also got a bachelor’s degree in the Faculty of Humanities and Philosophy of Bologna with a thesis in ethnomusicology about Hindustani music and minimalism. She’s active as audiovisual artist, acousmatic composer, guitarist and music teacher. Her work has been commissioned and performed in festivals and venues of experimental music in Europe. Her debut album Vertical, composed for Buchla Modular Synthesizer and vocals, was produced between EMS and KMH in Stockholm and was released on the american label Important Records/Cassauna (8 October 2014). Her music projects have been released also by the labels Oma333 and Trovarobato.
