You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted much here these past weeks. This is due to me actually getting on with some of my own projects, as I too am an electronic musician who just happens to be female : )
Anyway, time has flown this year, so fast, that I even missed my anniversary for Feminatronic. Yes, time flies and I have been doing this for 6 years.
I have had to adapt and at times find it difficult to keep up with all the new releases and reviews, which is not a bad thing as I feel there is much more visibility of female identifying artists now, but there is still a long way to go especially in changing attitudes. Anyway, I post as much as I can on the Twitterverse and Facebook and I have reached the 160th playlist on SoundCloud.
I need to rethink about here…but this website will remain in some form next year.
In the meantime, here are a couple of posts coming up …
Thank you again for supporting Feminatronic

“Saout Radio, represented by Younes Baba-Ali and Anna Raimondo, explores the universe of sonic arts, including radio, sound art, video and interventions in the public space. It proposes a sonic travel into the universe of sonic arts exploring its different possibilities, the richness of its languages and the multitudes of its sensuous experiences.”

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.”
Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes
Today is International Women’s Day (March 8th 2017) and I put together this playlist of electronic music creators to celebrate as part of a week of Feminatronic overload on all platforms : )

So many groups now exist with various goals, and a collective motivation to support women, girls and all genders who do not identify as cis men. This map has been created by the Yorkshire Sound Wom…
