Caterina Barbieri, Adam Asnan, and Carlo Maria at West Germany / Thursday 04.08.2016
The electroacoustic concert series presented by Care Of Editions continues with Caterina Barbieri, Adam Asnan, and Carlo Maria: this time, celebrating the final album in the label’s Negative Money series, with the release of Jib Kidder’s New Works for Realistic Mixer on August 1st.
Caterina Barbieri is a composer and performer of electronic music now based in Berlin. An emphasis on minimalism in composition arises from a meditation on primary waveforms an exploration of the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of voltage-controlled sequencers. Repetition as a technique in both structural arrangement and analogue sound design lies at the core of her current sonic research. She has composed music for the Buchla Modular Synthesizer and has researched and produced music at the renowned EMS in Stockholm.
Adam Asnan (1983, UK) is an electroacoustic musician and location sound recordist, based between London and Berlin. His work promotes the aesthetic potential of recorded, amplified sound, the auditory ‘image’ and the virtues of spatialisation.
His compositions, live performances and collaborative projects have been presented across Europe, with recordings published by Entr’acte, Senufo Editions, Foredoom, Porta, 1000füssler, Consumer Waste, Second Sleep, Holidays Records, Wasted Capital Since 2013, Reductive Music, Organised Music from Thessaloniki, Intonema and Mappa.
Carlo Maria Amadio is a composer and performer of electronic music currently based in Berlin. His music is influenced both by minimalism and contemporary club culture related music genres. The feedback process between humans and machines in music making, considered as a primary trigger not only for creativity but also for a wider knowledge of the self, is one of the main inspiration of his current sonic research. He studied at the Conservatory “G.B. Martini” of Bologna where he obtained a degree with honor in Electronic Music and at the Institute of Sonology of The Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
Care Of Editions is a label that explores new approaches to music distribution. Under our first model, Negative Money, we use the profits from selling vinyl records to pay people for downloading the same albums. The amount one receives, in dollars, is equal to the download edition number.
