> CATERINA BARBIERI AT The Long Now, MaerzMusik, Berliner Festspiele

20.03.2016, Kraftwerk, Berlin


“The Long Now” is a place for the enduring present. A space in which time itself can unfold, where the sense of time can take uncharted paths and even depart. With a duration of 30 hours, “The Long Now” is the grand closing event of MaerzMusik − Festival for Time Issues 2016. Surrounded by the monumental setting of Kraftwerk Berlin, the project assembles concerts, performances, electronic live-acts, sound and video installations to form a composition in space and time. Embracing musical worlds, from the avant-garde to experimental electronics, ambient and noise, “The Long Now” is made for sonic and bodily experiences of an exceptional kind. Whether lying, standing, sitting, dancing or eating, you are invited to stay in this chronosphere and give yourself over to “The Long Now”.


Curated by Berno Odo Polzer, Laurens von Oswald and Harry Glass.



Echo La Rocca – The Sound as the Trace of Her Voice

Closing event of Sally Schonfeldt's exhibition about Ketty la Rocca



"Technologies of the Self is an electronic music composition commissioned by Istituto Svizzero  for Echo La Rocca – The Sound as the Trace of her Voice, a special evening of performances, concerts and talks hosted by Sally Schonfeldt’s exhibition “The Ketty La Rocca Research Center” at Istituto Svizzero in Rome. This composition is dedicated to the absence and alienation of female perspectives in the history of early Italian electronic music.


Far from being a nostalgic claim of the missing, Technologies of the Self looks at the “hidden from history” perspective to radically rework gendered patterns in present electronic music-making. Combining instrumental practice on synthesisers with live processing of vocal recordings resulting from research on a variety of texts about sound, technology and gender, Barbieri draws inspiration from the tradition of “analog ladies”, such as Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani and Laurie Spiegel, as well as from the silent voices of the marginalized.


Aiming to stimulate in the listener a proactive role in rethinking constructions of gender, this sonic experiment seeks to free the emancipatory potential of technology and the power of sound as an agent of change, overcoming binary notions of gender deeply embedded in our culture in search of higher fluidity. Alienation of female perspectives then turns into a trigger to imagine new paradigms of sound and re-engineer the male-designed music world we all were born into, exploring self-defined positions able to cross and swap dichotomous archetypes of gender."           (Caterina Barbieri, January 2016)
