About

Caterina Barbieri

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.

“…one of the modular synth’s brightest and most singular new voices” (Pitchfork)

Myriam Bleau

Ballistics (2019) is an audio visual performance for pendulum interfaces, drawing inspiration from popular science fiction and mysticism. The wireless luminous objects are equipped with motion sensors allowing for handheld manipulations, oscillations, spins and high momentum trajectories. An exercise in sonifying sharp movements and pendulum physics, this performance uses digital modular synthesis to reveal a corroded and textural landscape of uneven rhythms.

Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montreal. She creates audiovisual systems that go beyond the screen, such as sound installations and performance-specific musical interfaces. Her hybrid electronic practice investigates music performance as a codified cultural manifestation and recontextualizes pop culture elements and music history tropes. Her work has been recognized and presented internationally : Prix Ars Electronica (AT), Sónar (ES) and Sónar Hong Kong, Sonic Arts Award (IT), Elektra (CA), Mutek (MX), ISEA (CA), Transmediale (DE), ACT (KR), Laboral + Lev (ES), Scopitone (FR) and Cafe Oto (UK), to name a few.
