As Caterina Barbieri furthers her light-years imprint with a reissue of her landmark album Ecstatic Computation, (Bleep's album of the year in 2019) she unravels some musical threads that have been creeping around her live performances and compositions. Myuthafoo was written around the same time as Ecstatic Computation, teased and transformed through extensive touring, and now sits alongside it as a sister album of complex patterns exploring the uniquely entrancing space Barbieri has created.

Detailing similar themes of perception, time, and cosmology, Myuthafoo’s slippery and levitating songs are swept into a cosmic ballet between modular synth and composer. As sequences of synths float through each track, Barbieri lifts singular notes into the air, straying them from their course so they frantically scatter, bellow, and glide. One must strain their neck to trace the height of these soaring motifs; in the title track they ascend like flares in pitch and altitude, while tiptoeing celestial sparkles rhythmically decay at the edges.

‘Memory Leak’ is a visceral entrance, an instant rush of electricity raging inside a storm cell, after which clouds of electrons in ‘Math of You’ oscillate in intensity, like corkscrewing sparks and colliding atoms its pinprick melodies are restless and ever changing. Previously included in the 2020 compilation More Light from boundary-breaking festival Berlin Atonal, ‘Sufyosowirl’ glitters as its modulated synths dance with each other, transmuting from starlight to elastic snaps as the sonic material metamorphosizes.

Myuthafoo offers more of the fractal structures coaxed throughout Ecstatic Computation, holding a magnifying glass to Caterina Barbieri’s sonic philosophies and processes.
