Tresor 30 presents: Carlota Marques
Carlota is an electronic music producer, live performer and DJ based in Berlin, Germany. Raised amidst the natural environment of the Balearic islands, she incorporates a highly visual approach to production, weaving the subtleties of emotion and memory into vivid sonic excursions. After obtaining a degree in sound engineering, Carlota gravitated towards modular synths as her machines of choice. Since then, she has devoted her workflow to exploring the outer reaches of generative sound production, intuitively guiding her tools with both a refined sense of control and respect for their autonomy.
Following a number of highly acclaimed appearances on Трип Recordings - which culminated in her 2020 debut solo EP The Bow - Carlota continues to interrogate the artistic potentials of sonic machinery with boundless curiosity. Aesthetically, her sound reflects the infinite power of the machines used to make them. Radiant melodic leads wander through complex rhythmic structures - much like colorful wires spiraling around a modular synth - whilst zoning in on a particular combination of cross-rhythms and looping motifs. Drawing upon a compositional approach that sits somewhere between live improvised jazz and phase-shifting minimalism, her focus on synthesis and it’s transcendent potential will be thoroughly explored as part of this year’s Superbooth program.
