Ex Eye: Sounds and Visions Session Five with Caterina Barbieri (London, UK)

  • Milton Court Concert Hall Silk Street London, England, EC2Y United Kingdom (map)

Sensuous minimalism gives way to total maximalism in this double bill, bringing together the synth of Caterina Barbieri with the avant-Metal of Ex Eye, saxophonist Colin Stetson’s new project.

Meeting at the crossroads between Metal and Jazz, Ex Eye unites Stetson with drummer and regular collaborator Greg Fox (Liturgy), multi-instrumentalist Shazad Ismaily and guitarist Toby Summerfield. Together, they make music of extremes, Stetson’s baritone sax a muscular central pole around which knotty riffs, throbbing drones and incessant drums spin, creating a feverish and almost euphoric noise.

Caterina Barbieri’s set is a different proposition entirely. The Italian-born, Berlin-based composer draws from diverse influences, including Kosmische, classical Minimalism and medieval lute music, creating a layered, slowly-shifting and totally mesmerising type of synthesizer music.
