Catarina Barbieri (IT) – Thursday 25th October / Driv
Caterina Barbieri is a Berlin-based Italian composer who explores themes related to machine intelligence and object oriented perception in sound through a focus on minimalism.
Barbieri’s work explores the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of synthesisers to draw complex and severe geometries in time and space, aiming to reveal the integrative, cognitive feedback between humans and technology as well as the psycho-physical effects of repetition and pattern-based operations in music.
Barbieri holds a diploma in classical guitar and a bachelor’s degree in electro-acoustic music from the conservatory of Bologna, Italy, alongside a bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Humanities and Philosophy with a thesis in Ethnomusicology about Hindustani music and Minimalism.
