More Info

"Natasha Barrett is Norway's most prominent composer of electro-acoustic music, rewarded with numerous prizes and awards. Peat + Polymer is a double portrait of her artistic work, showcasing the connections and contradictions beetween synthetic and organic sound. Natasha Barrett is a British-Norwegian composer, performer and researcher of electroacoustic art music. Her output spans instrumental and electroacoustic composition through to sound-art, sound-architectural installations and interactive projects. Barrett completed her Master's Degree at the University of Birmingham, moving on to her Doctoral degree in composition at City University in London in 1998.КIn addition to collaborating with performers, she often involves experimental designers and scientists in her work. Her compositional aesthetics are derived from acousmatic issues focusing on the aural perception of detail, hidden sounds, structure and potential meaning. The composition and manipulation of space is a central element in much of this work." [label info]
