Caterina Barbieri - Gravity That Binds

Here's some amazing modular synth work from Italian composer Caterina Barbieri. Gravity That Binds is the final track from her 2017 album Patterns of Consciousness, and it's powerful demonstrates of the uses of repetition. It starts with a simple pattern, subdued and rather churchy, and then starts to gradually modulate the timbre. By the time it's in full flow the sound seems to be crashing about everywhere, despite Barbieri's restraint with the number of active voices. It closes with a fade that lasts several minutes, like a piece of space junk floating away into the distance, still and peaceful and lost. A real emotional journey.
