Duration: about 60 minutes

A journey into deep time with Europe’s leading synth innovator. From her base in Milan, Italy, electronic music composer Caterina Barbieri has created music that travels beyond specific time and place.  

Barbieri’s minimalist, uncluttered music is made with a modular synth setup that she refers to as a mechanical fortune teller or time machine. Her electronic sounds have previously appeared on the labels Editions Mego and Important Records.  
Her latest project, Spirit Exit, is a new album composed and recorded in her home studio during lockdown. In this period she took inspiration from female philosophers, mystics and poets. Spirit Exit is a staged performance specifically created for this new tour, and is part of this year’s Ultima festival. It promises an otherworldly, deeply moving and immersive experience.   

This concert is part of the Ultima Festival (15 – 24 September), where all the diversity of contemporary music can be experienced at venues all over Oslo. The festival is supported by the Arts Council Norway and Oslo City Council. More about Ultima at MUNCH.
