Caterina Gobbi is an Italian artist based in Berlin.
In my work, I investigate the relationship, mediated through sound, between human beings and their environment. Combining my interests in ecology, feminism and electronic music production I create immersive sonic frameworks, that involve participatory acts of walking and listening. Vocalising both human and natural geographies, I use field recordings to uncover hidden power dynamics, notions of gender/identity politics, and environmental awareness.
My installations are composed of resonating objects where speakers or transducers are incorporated into sculptural and spacial elements. Working alongside the architecture of the space or the landscape I create soundscapes that surround the viewer aiming to engage in a physical and visceral way and not only through hearing. In some cases, the objects are activated through performative actions.
My sonic work spans along with different genre and electronic styles. I work with broken beats and recordings, which I warp and manipulate. I sometimes use spoken word to create a disrupted speech. I also experiment with DIY electronics, building microphones and effects that are operated through body movements, challenging the threshold between body and machine.
