Listening to…

Today’s ambience. Nothing can be added to this comment –

“weightless, blissful, but also flightless – always connected to the body whose aurality must be blocked to survive its seduction. This tender voice calls from far away yet from a place we all know, stretched on filaments strung through clouds of condensation, the clinking jigsaw of melting ice, soft flows of breath and dawn mists that speak through water insects and dreaming.” ––David Toop

See Headphone Commute coverage here. “Inspired by the true story of Laika, a stray dog sent into space by Soviet Russia in the fifties, Perpetual Journey speaks of the emotional journeys and strange fates that entangle our lives.” This is definitely a […]

Listening to…

Instead of playlists this Summer, I’m going to highlight and post compilations that may be of interest to listeners, covering all electronic genres and diverse in sound. Although this collection is not solely electronic, it does spotlight some of the artists creating experimental music.

Listening to Soundcloud Playlists

I have reached playlist #134  and this must be one of my favourites. You have to give it time and it’s not easy listening but it covers all genres and artists and if you like this one there are another 133 waiting for you here

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
During the past 5 years of Feminatronic I have been on a bit of a personal sonic journey around the world with the focus on human beings who just happen to identify as women and create electronic sounds /noise /music via a huge plethora of electronic means. This playlist hopes to demonstrate some of the eclecticism that I have listened to this past couple of months but as usual it is just the tip of the iceberg.

As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists…..

Artists are Hallie Smith, Zyklus, Tullia Benedicta, Odio Sis, Alessandra Zerbinati,Skoddie, MG Raconteur, Anna Peaker, Isabel Porto Nogueira, Bana Haffar, Eartheater, Enchantedlands, Yara Mekawei, AGF, Georgina Canifru, Jaclyn Kendall, Monika Ze, Lesley Romano, Flavia Goa, The Lady C Universe, Roslyn Steer, Rachel Lancaster, kobto, BorealNetwork, Cruel Diagonals, Zavoloka, Nadia Struiwigh, Minerva, Laurel Halo and Renu.

Review Reblog – Thembi Soddell – Love Songs

“….resides in a zone of unrelenting darkness and physical affect.

Working at the nexus of raw emotion, sound design and musique concrete, she creates sound worlds that are effortlessly dense and abyss-like”

 

Aural Aggravation

ROOM40 – RM491 – 12th April 2018

Christopher Nosnibor

It’s not even as much as a distant rumble. It’s barely the sound of air. An uneven hum eventually creeps into the realm of audible perception, but it’s still so quiet as to be questionable: is my mind playing tricks? Am I imagining sound to fill the silence. The whir of the disc in the player is still louder, and stands to the fore because of its higher pitch. But no, the rumble is growing now. I’ve been sitting here for three minutes or more, but now, the sound is upon me, and it’s like an approaching helicopter, thick, beating the air. It reaches a point of sustained crescendo, from whence if continues to grow, from a low roar to an excruciating multi-tonal blitz that fills the room and fills my head. Treble whines and drones above the gut-clenching low-end and…

Review Reblog – Valentina Villarroel ~ Mares

Since first hearing “Paisajes Sonoros” near the beginning of this personal sonic journey, I’ve had a love for the quiet, understated sound of Valentina Villarroel, so was so pleased to see this new release, thanks to ACL.

a closer listen

Valentina Villarroel is one of the most unassuming artists we’ve even encountered.  Content to let her work speak for itself, she provides only sparse descriptions. In a single sentence, she writes that Mares was recorded at “different locations around the region of Bio Bio, Chile.”  The rest is up to us.

This is her second release of the season on Sonospace, arriving on the heels of the recently reissued Pequeñas Composiciones, an experimental set comprised of field recordings, found sounds and studio manipulations.  Mares is more straightforward, a collection of crisply mastered recordings captured where land meets sea. It’s the best recording of its kind since Chris Silver T’s Salty Spots, and pairs nicely with Simon Šerc‘s Bora Scura: one set wind, the other one waves.

For those who can’t get to the beach, Mares makes an evocative sonic companion.  The nine numbered tracks rise in…
