fINALLY POSTING…

I’ve been looking through some of my drafts in a bit of a tidy up, and have found many that, for some reason, I forgot to post, like this one…Now’s as good as any…

National Women’s Hall of Fame Induction Sept. 14, 2019 –

Laurie Spiegel: (1945- ) A composer whose work appears on NASA’s “Golden Record,” (shipped out on the Voyager spacecraft) Laurie Spiegel is known worldwide for her pioneering work with early electronic and computer music systems. A cutting-edge thinker, her experience with early analog electronic music systems led Spiegel to innovate musically and instrumentally. She has focused largely on interactive software that uses algorithmic logic as a supplement to human abilities, thereby expanding access to creative expression for a far greater number of people than was previously allowed through traditional methods of musical training. The aesthetics of musical structure and cognitive processes have also been a focus of Spiegel’s work. Spiegel’s work has been re-issued, having appeared in the popular Hunger Games movies, highlighted in the 2018 BBC Proms, and featured in various museum settings where the intersection of electronic music compositions, the machines, and software used to create those compositions, and the visual arts have come together in harmony.

Francesca Heart – Ianassa Alga Miraggio — Yeah I Know It Sucks

Another ‘find’ from YIKIS and a lovely Sunday afternoon listen. Reposting some YIKIS posts here as they have an interesting take on sounds, as well as a platform that actually supports artists that would never get a lot of attention otherwise. I’m all for that : )

Due Matte
by Valentina Magaletti & Marlene Ribeiro

Experimental, uk underground music, concrete, tropical, tropical concrete

“Two of the most important artists of UK underground music: Valentina Magaletti (Tomaga, Vanishing Twins, etc) and Marlene Ribeiro (Gnod, Negrabranca) were invited to contribute to Hysteria, an artistic residency in Porto 2019. “Due Matte” is the fruit of it: an interaction game between styles and sounds, mesmeric in its echoes of distant landscapes and enveloping in its spatiality.
A music exercise in “tropical concrete”.

No. 4

soundtrack, slow light, omnidirectional

I have been revisiting some articles from sites I have followed these past 8 years and came across the Christina Vantzou interview from March 2016 on Sound Propositions / A Closer Listen, well worth checking out here. I had posted it at the time but it spurred me to go check out new releases and here is this afternoon’s listen.

Here’s the review of No4 on A Closer Listen too.

Reblog – Sound Propositions 09: Kate Carr — a closer listen

These are strange times and like many I have been spending time taking stock. How to move forward when you feel like your feet are in concrete?

I decided to revisit and also finally visit other people’s sites and repost some gems here. This series Sound Propositions, in the words of A Closer Listen themselves is ” fusing narrative interviews with music, field-recording, and sound design” and there are some very creative artists doing that.

I thought I would post a couple here, well the start of the articles and interviews but they are well worth clicking through for the rest : )

Sound Propositions is an ongoing, semi-regular series of conversations with artists exploring their creative practices and individual aesthetics, conceived of as a counter-narrative to a dominant trend in music journalism which fetishizes equipment and new technologies. Rather than writing copy that can just as easily have come from a press release or a catalog, this […]

Reblog – Amy Cutler ~ Örö Tape: Fieldtrips of the Damned / Marina Rosenfeld & Ben Vida ~ Vertice — a closer listen

What is the purpose of recorded sound? As music lovers, we live and breathe it. But what is its raison d’être? Recordings transport us into distant places or timeframes. They prompt emotional and intellectual responses. The aural can complement visual and spatial arts. It can be raw material for further sonic explorations. Perhaps multi-disciplinary artists […]
