Listening to…

Here are a couple of releases that really caught my ear when on a journey into sound art.

Obviously this influential piece …

7704A – Tiger Balm
by Annea Lockwood

Experimental, chants, folk, meditation, traditional…and cat purring

“Each piece is concerned with evoking a force-sound, making this force/energy materialize and become quite clear to all there. The players then can’t just simply ‘learn to play’ my pieces, They’ll find themselves going through a training course to discover what is meant by sounds and their energy. To discover how to transcend through themselves. To learn the fine edge of sound as a destructive or misapplied force (un-perceived tone perhaps) and sound as transformer or as something wholeness making.”


Secondly this beautiful strangeness to the ear which is on my Christmas list –

Realm
by Realistic Monk (Carl Stone & Miki Yui)

Abstract, electronic, experimental.

#Rolemodels – Sound Art

So you know when I said I had a lot in my draft file, well here’s something I put together in 2015 when I started this journey and forgot to post but fits really well in #Rolemodels.

I have often wondered…

WHAT IS SOUND ART?

This was part of a series on Sound  Art and the women who have been and are, at the forefront of this highly eclectic and diverse art form but I never posted this until now…

ICYMI – Heejin Jang – Trouble in the Camp — Yeah I Know It Sucks

At the moment, I am in semi offline state trying to get some projects of my own finished. However, I will not be abandoning things completely and anyway it gives me a good chance to finally post things that have mysteriously been left in my drafts, for a long time.

Let’s begin with this excoriating in a good way release from 2017 –

#Rolemodels – Daria Semegen

An occasional series where I try and shine a little light on some of the women at the forefront of electronic music who I think should have more acknowledgement.

Daria Semegen

Daria Semegen (b. 1946) is a composer of instrumental, vocal and electronic music. She is a recognized authority on electronic music composition.

This article in New Music USA set me on a journey to find out more –

The Nashville artist’s work has the slippery strangeness of electronic music from the late ’70s and early ’80s.
