Marta De Pascalis is one of a kind.
She creates densely layered collages of glowing melodic shards and growling bass lines, her hypnotic minimal synth figures warping and whirling around each other before dissolving into entropic oblivion. For her compositions she uses improvisation on a tape-loop system, in which patterns of repetition create a sense of a dense, dynamic and cathartic distance. She has produced two albums of Berlin School minimal synth excursions: the self-released Quitratue (2014) and Anzar by the Touch-affiliated The Tapeworm imprint, 2016. ‘Her Core’ was published in Spring 2018 by The Wormhole, while her debut album “Sonus Ruinae” dropped on Morphine late August 2020.
Last year, before enchanting the Berghain with her loop spells at the Morphine Modern/ Morphine Contemporary night, I invited her in the Attuned Refuge to introduce us her life path through sound with a beautiful selection. She’s back today with a profound and blasting set for your ears delight.
