Caterina Barbieri

Minimalist electronic composer Caterina Barbieri is set to release two new albums this week. One a split LP with kindred spirit Eleh, the other an entirely solo effort titled ‘Born Again In The Voltage’.

On the split album, each artist fills one side of a twelve-inch with slowly unfurling sounds. You can listen to excerpts from each composition here:

‘Born Again In The Voltage’, meanwhile, is a collection of compositions recorded by Barbieri between 2014 and 2015. The sounds on the record are drawn from 1970s synth the Buchla 200 as well as cello and voice.

Your next chance to catch Barbieri live in the UK will be at the Wysing Polyphonic Festival in Cambridge on 1 Sep. Meanwhile, listen to ‘How To Decode An Illusion’ from ‘Born Again In The Voltage’ here:
