'Knot Of Spirit' is the debut release on Barbieri's new label platform, light-years

Caterina Barbieri is launching her own label, light-years, and its first release is a collaborative track with Lyra Pramuk, titled 'Knot Of Spirit'.

Out today (July 22), the 10-minute track sees Barbieri pair her distinctive arpeggiated synths with Pramuk's vocals. You can watch a video for the track above.

Offering more detail on her new label, Barbieri says: "After a period of unprecedented isolation, I am personally really inspired by the idea of exploring a more collaborative and independent format, where diversity, inclusivity, co-creation and mutual support are primary values to define a more sustainable landscape for its artists and creators."

The label is intended to be a multidisciplinary platform, which will span music releases as well as visual media, art and fashion, while Barbieri plans to consider the environmental impact of releasing physical objects, by using recycled or consciously resourced materials wherever possible.

The label will also be expanded into a live setting this year, with Barbieri hoping to create a "continuous enveloping environment" for performance, which will involve collaborations with associated artists. Among those artists are Bendik Giske, Nkisi, Kali Malone and Pramuk. The first of these shows will take place on July 30 at Italy's Nextones Festival, and a further one is scheduled for September at Draaimolen in Tilburg.

'Knot Of Spirit' is out now on light-years.
