Marta De Pascalis is an Italian musician and sound-designer living and working in Berlin. Her solo works employ analog synthesis and tape loops, incorporating free playing into steady, repetitive patterns. 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 piece Her Core has been published in Spring 2018 by The Wormhole.
Marta 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 shared the stage with the likes of The Necks, Demdike Stare, William Basinski, Jerusalem In My Heart and collaborated with Carlos Casas. She founded and curates the infamous Marina di Neukölln Festival.
Her next album Sonus Ruinae is due next August 28th on Morphine Records.
