Caterina Barbieri (FFO: Oneohtrix, Lorenzo Senni, Hecker)

Not sure if she’s been talked about on DIS but I discovered her record this year and I love it. Definite parallels with Lorenzo Senni’s pointilist trance and echoes of Oneohtrix Point Never and Tim Hecker. Beautifully bridges the gap between wanky computer music and melodic bangers.

Saw her yesterday at Cafe Oto and it was electrifying, almost had a heart attack. Felt like I was seeing one of the big name electronic musicians. She’s playing Max Richter’s Barbican thing and I highly recommend seeing her.

Bump

she’s so good!

I like some of that Editions Mego stuff so will give this a go…

feel like i should really love her music - and her attitude to modular synths etc is refreshing - but it stops just short of that so far and is just pleasant to listen to. With the increasing loud critical acclaim around her music i fear it’s going to seem even more just tantalisingly out-of-reach
