About Feminatronic

I am an electronic musician who, as someone recently said to me, set up Feminatronic to act as "soft PR" for female electronic artists from all genres and styles. If I can give a little helping hand then why not?

Today’s Discovery – Feed Goals by Enchanted Lands

 

“…assemblages, showing intricate weaving and arranging of sound materials. Her tracks form strange scenes or frames where just when the sound seems to settle down a turnover point is reached and a delicate change of balance results in a whole new plateau. Receiving cues from ASMR, impact blasts, and natural phenomena, these elements become sound ingredients that add microscopic texture, sensuality and depth to their complementary sounds. Moving beyond any high or low fidelity, the nature of the sounds blend together into a space where compression artefacts, phone mic’ing and high-tech sound design mingle fluently. From weeping wind harps to whispered confessionals to immense trance reveries, the result is a sound that eludes itself and forces the ear to expect some curious inversion around every corner.”

Couldn’t attempt to describe this any better – A sonic delight.

Web Focus – Between Air and Electricity

Several of the loudspeaker sculptures used in Huba de Graaff’s opera Lautsprecher Arnolt. © Huba de GraaffIn her opera Lautsprecher Arnolt (2004) Huba de Graaff decided to have most roles played by loudspeakers. Only the main character—the writer Arnolt Bronnen (1895-1959)—is played by a human actor, Marien Jongewaard. Arnolt himself is literally a “loud speaker”, screaming…

This site documents examples discussed in my book Between air and electricity – Microphones and loudspeakers as musical instruments. Although most of these pieces and performances are best experienced live, these audio and video documentations might be helpful to get a better understanding of the music.”

Review Reblog – Marta Sap – Breaths

Something different and a breath of fresh air – poor pun not intended.

 

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Marta Sap
Title: Breaths
Keywords: 3city alternative electronic world didgeridoo fox peoples space woman Gdańsk

As long as Marta Sap delivers her breaths we would be musically in for a good ride. Here she explores grooves and moods with the didgeridoo as the staring middle point and when she feels like it; electronica on the side. Let me mumble away about the tracks that this release is the home for: The fiery first one named ‘Jungle City’ sets the mood into a dancing one. With the moving sound of a active didgeridoo as the acidic baseline, the artist named Marta Sap is armed enough to deliver a incredible active expression in rhythm & vibe that feels naturally earthy. It easily connects to the pleasure center of the brain, tricking the endorphins to come out and make us feel happy and gay. ‘Fast Drivers’ is also a great active didgeridoo…

Review Reblog – Mia Zabelka & Asférico – The Broken Glass

Aural Aggravation

Störung – str011 – 7th July 2017

Christopher Nosnibor

I need to work a better filing system for my to-review albums. As it stands, it’s literally a pile, with new deliveries being tossed on top of the pile or otherwise littering the floor next to my desk. The chaotic disorder doesn’t sit comfortably with my innate sense of order and organisation, but the pile has a life of its own. Logically, new arrivals should go to the bottom of the pile, but lifting the pile, precarious as it is, is a risky operation. The teetering stack reached a height and degree of instability this morning that lifting the disc and accompanying press release from the top caused the whole thing to slide in several directions at once. Gathering the strewn and scattered discs and press releases, many of which had become separated from one another, I happened upon The Broken…

Review Reblog – Agnès Pe ‬- Para Ana (music video)‬

I came across Agnes Pe via Yeah I Know it Sucks some time ago and have followed her avant garde, witty and experimental work ever since.
“Wasn’t that a marvellous experience?”
Yes….and recommended too are her radio sound collages – Mitt Pate : )

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: ‪Agnès Pe ‬
Title: ‪Para Ana (music video)‬
‪Keywords:‬ devotional faux-utopian ambience devotional distorted e-stim malfunction muzak muzak-stun Lleida

It doesn’t happen everyday when two intriguing artists collaborate in a audio visual form, but when the odd moons align and such a special thing actually happens it’s for sure something to inform everyone about! Especially when the artists in question are ‪Agnès Pe & Jan Strach. The result is a spectacular experience in the shape of a excellent trip in music video form. Jan Strach heard ‘Para Ana’ by Agnès Pe and must have been incredibly inspired as the good man started to create the perfect visuals to the sounds. ‬

‪With his love for video games and the excellent trained ears for the bizarreness in the music spectrum, Jan Strach managed to make the track come alive. It’s a real trip, one that is best viewed…

Review Reblog – on pauline anna strom’s trans-millenia music, via rvng

It is a sad fact that some artists gain recognition late in their lives, sometimes due to a reappraisal of the “genre” they write. In hindsight some are realising that New Age and Melodic Instrumental music is really worth sitting down and listening to, albeit a bit late for some as in Pauline Anna Strom’s case, or too late for others. Without sounding preachy here – give things a listen, you might be pleasantly surprised.
