“Perennial Fantas” coincided with Caterina Barbieri’s inaugural performance alongside Space Afrika on Berlin Atonal’s main stage. This follows her successful sold-out performances at renowned venues such as London’s Barbican and New York’s Pioneer Works.

Following the reissue of “Ecstatic Computation” in July and the release of its sister album “Myuthafoo” from the same 2019 sessions earlier this Summer, “Perennial Fantas” arrives as the next musical gem in Barbieri’s illustrious career. This release follows the impressive 2021 releases of “Fantas Variations” and “Spirit Exit,” showcasing Barbieri’s penchant for collaboration with experimental talents like Lyra Pramuk, saxophonist Bendik Giske, and acclaimed composers like Kali Malone and Kara-Lis Coverdale. 

“Perennial Fantas” takes listeners on an otherworldly journey, capturing the essence of witnessing the birth and fiery demise of a celestial star. Barbieri’s spellbinding transformation of “Fantas” propels this eerie melody towards a spectacular supernova climax, welcoming us into an entirely new dimension.
