A very short post to let you know that FACT made a mini-documentary on my live approach while I was at Mutek in Montreal on 3 June, you can see the interview and live footage below and read the article here :-)

Interesting short piece about the tech and processes used by Colleen in live concerts, that combines the old with the new to create new sounds and textures.
If there is one thing the eleven year history of Serein tells us, it is that the Welsh label does not put out a release unless it is something special – just consider records like Pine by Olan Mill, Retold by Nest or Charcoal by Brambles. That makes their first new material published this year a tantalizing […]

The World Listening Day 2016 theme is Sounds Lost and Found. All this week the focus will be on this theme and there will be a concentration on Field Recording.
World Listening Day 2016’s theme, “Sounds Lost and Found,” calls on reminiscing, listening and observing what changes in our soundscapes have occurred in recent decades—be it language, nature, technology, music or even silence itself.
Thinking about this, I have tried in this playlist to convey a theme of sounds associated with the colder parts of the world that are heating up rapidly due to Global Warming. These sounds are gradually being lost or will be, especially with the melting of ice caps. Ultimately, there is the shift from Ice and Snow to Water.
Artists on this playlist are – Nashim Gargari, Kate Carr, Karen Power, Bethan Parkes, Maile Colbert, Una Lee, Jana Winderen and A Rawlings.
The playlist is a loose interpretation of the melting of the ice caps and the transition of ice to water. Here Jana Winderen has sonically expressed this perfectly.
“Jana Winderen researches the hidden depths with the latest technology; her work reveals the complexity and strangeness of the unseen world beneath. The audio topography of the oceans and the depth of ice crevasses are brought to the surface.”
Feminatronic #70 is a playlist of “minimalist” tracks but that does not mean they that have little going on sonically,(sound , noise or voice), you just have to listen for the nuances and there is a lot more going on under the surface. Possibly, you might like to listen with headphones to get the full effect.
Artists on this playlist are –
Hyaena Fierling, Patrizia Mattioli, Miniature Zebra, Queef, Ola Saad, Crys Cole, Rachel Lancaster and Christine Webster.
Artist of the Week is Jo Thomas
“Jo Thomas is an award winning London based composer who choses to work through sculpting electronic sound into an aural tapestry of technological,biological and emotional states. Her work is based around human fallibility, she chooses to represent the human in sound with a discourse of delicate and detailed sonic failure using a sophisticated combination of micro sound, micro tonal and glitch material.
She creates organic complex and beautiful music’s which are written specifically for spaces and different formats of music release.Her works exist in the extreme of large scale and miniature, striving to work with momentary engagement and long listening continuums.”
Looking through the myriad of reviews that I have to catch up on I came across Miss Cutter via YIKIS. The review of Four – Dimensional Dance Floor intrigued me by the title and you can read the review here .I know very little about this artist except she is from Buenos Aires and a brief comment that poorly translates as – I am not an artist, I am only weeping.
I like to listen to other releases if I can and came across her lo fi Baroque album which is Todays Discovery, which retains the original source music but with added other worldliness.
