‘A half an hour with Marta De Pascalis’, delving into sound, talking about the creative process from her sessions at Worm Sound Studio.
Senta, Pasolini. [The School of Radio].
Marta De Pascalis is an Italian musician and sound-designer based in Berlin. Her solo works employ analog synthesis and a tape-loop system, whereby she creates patterns of repetition that shape a sense of a dense, dynamic and cathartic distance.
Her sound touches a wide range of electronic music genres, such as ambient, Berlin school first excursions, psychedelic, and tape music.
She has produced three solo albums: the self-released Quitratue (2014), Anzar by the Touch-affiliated The Tapeworm imprint (2016), and Sonus Ruinae, released on September 2020 by experimental Berlin label Morphine Records.
She has performed in different festivals and venues, notably Museo Reina Sofia, Biennale di Venezia, Berghain, Funkhaus, Café Oto, Mutek Festival.
