Reblog – LCNL 085: Your Grace Adrianna Natalie presents Another Side

…and not so quiet start to the week but has led to my Today’s Discovery – The Unseen Shadows (ALRN069)
by Your Grace Adrianna Natalie

 

a closer listen

Over the years we’ve featured several mixes from the Alrealon Musique. This mix comes courtesy of Your Grace Adrianna Natalie, the most recent artist to join the label. Her debut EP The Unseen Shadows was released last November, showcasing her penchant for unconventional techno and dark moods. This mix weaves her own tracks in with kindred spirits (Regis, Dasha Rush, and Orphx), fellow New Yorkers (Chanski), sacred ancestors (Throbbing Gristle) and more. (Joseph Sannicandro)

MINI-INTERVIEW

Please introduce yourself.

I was born and raised in New York, in The Bronx.

I am currently living in Jersey City, but spend most of my time in NYC for work and Brooklyn for technoing with my techno sisters and brothers. Lately, I’ve been spending lots of time in my studio, playing with my sexy toys.

Growing up music was my best friend, its what…

Today’s Discovery #2 – Theda Hammel on Giving Sondheim the Synth Treatment

Sometimes you just come across something that makes you sit up and listen….

Today’s Discovery – Katharina Klement ~ peripheries

Today’s Discovery brings a city to life…

 

 

a closer listen

What comes to mind when you think of Belgrade? Katharina Klement went on a nine-week mission to discover the sound of the city, and came away with a multitude of answers.

peripheries plays like a sonic photo album, the images more important than the flow.  While the album begins with a thump, the field recordings soon settle into a sort of rhythm.  As the set progresses, a tapestry is revealed. The overture of the city is heard from a balcony: dogs, sirens, traffic, street music, passers-by.  A discernible hum emerges.  Is this Belgrade?  Can a single chord, a melange of sounds, sum up the city?  Klement answers with an emphatic no. Her explorations reveal jagged edges and clear demarcations, from Tesla’s gorgeously amplified induction motor to the bells of Saint Sava.

An unexpected poignancy visits during “nijemo kolo (mute dance)”, though one must read the liner notes to detect it…

Today’s Discovery – Music For Candy Shops LP by Poly Chain

 

Thanks to Machine Woman on Twitter, I came across Today’s Discovery –
Music For Candy Shops LP
by Poly Chain

” Brand new Transatlantyk release contains elusive synth works of Sasha Zakrevska aka Poly Chain. She likes to call herself “a Ukrainian ambient chavette” and the title of her debut album is a tongue-in-cheek spin on the Eno’s classic. “Music For Candy Shop” is much more sticky and syrupy than its famous predecessor though. In every track on this record Poly Chain’s rich and warm synth textures are glazed with another layer of radioactive sweeting. From atonal melodies on top to occasional spicing in form of odd reverbs, delays and drum sounds – it’s all there. Let me tell you straight up: this candy shop serves some weird sort of sweets, inducing hallucinations, anxious feelings of omniscience and transcendency. Use with caution!”

Released February 24, 2017

Today’s Discovery – Sound Map

 

Travel the world through mini sound postcards….

 

” Sound Map is an audio project by artists Hannah Kemp-Welch and Lisa Hall, first shown at Tate Modern during Uniqlo Tate Late, June 30th 2017.

Responding to Cildo Meireles’s sonic vision of the Tower of Babel, we invite participants to listen to the most widely spoken languages across the globe, and reconsider the world map by language and listening, rather than country. This series of audio works form sonic postcards — snapshots of each language.
Collecting speech and song from online radio stations, news channels and live web cams, we’ve sought to capture each language in a two-minute mix. The audio was gathered at midday in the respective locations to ensure a chance selection process, free from bias. Where needed, environmental sounds were also sourced from online databases.”

Today’s Discovery – Are Euphoria by Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa

 

“…dreamlike technicolor tapestries their songs have always explored, blossoming forward with each cycle of loops. Completely characteristic of their style, Wong and Minekawa achieve a density of textures, timbres, beats, and harmonies while remaining totally weightless, suspended in the air.”

Today’s Discovery – Angelina Yershova – Piano’s Abyss

Angelina Yershova – Pianos Abyss

Thanks to Aural Aggravation for leading me to Today’s Discovery – Not just playing the keys but the whole Piano as instrument and yes, some electronic processing.

A special care was devoted to the spectral analysis, the resonances and the possible superimpositions of the frequencies of the sounds chosen as starting points for the sonic manipulations.

Twin Paradox – TPR003

Christopher Nosnibor

You might be forgiven for thinking that everything that could possibly be done with a piano has been done. Played, played harder, played drunk like a percussion instrument until the fingers begin to bleed a bit, stood on, worked from the inside, dropped from a high window, freewheeled down stairs, digitised and manipulated in every conceivable way by digital and analogue means, prepared, choked, treated, mistreated in every way imaginable. And then along comes composer, pianist, producer, sound artist and improviser Angelina Yershova. Classically trained, and with a degree in Electronic Music from Conservatory of S. Cecilia in Rome, she’s discovered a ne avenue of exploration for this timeless instrument.

Piano’s Abyss is described as ‘a vertical and progressive immersion within the “abyss” is the piano, an exploration of the expressive soul of the instrument through electronic synthesis, towards the discovery of an evocative…

Today’s Discovery –

I’ve been thinking for a while about these posts. What do I mean by Today’s Discovery?

I don’t want to come across all knowing because I am not.

When I post my Today’s Discovery’s they are releases or artists that I just happen to stumble across and I like what I hear. It’s a personal choice and not an expectation that everyone will like my choices.

Like everything on Feminatronic, it’s just a small way to try and show how much is being created in a multitude of ways….and it never ceases to amaze me.

 

So Today’s Discovery is this split release of experimental noise –
