Reblog – Teresa Rampazzi’s voice and her unique piece “Taras” — laura zattra

Curious to hear what Teresa Rampazzi’s (1914-2001) voice sounded like? This is a unique opportunity. This audio track I’ve uploaded on SoundCloud is part of a radio programme aired in 1985 “Le nuove frontiere della musica” (New frontiers of music; director: Tonino Delfino). Rampazzi and Delfino are discussing her piece “Taras su tre dimensioni”. The […]

#Rolemodels – Jean Eichelberger Ivey

There was a long thread about pioneers of electronic music on twitter and the usual names cropped up but as is often the case  there were names I hadn’t heard of and Jean Eichelberger Ivey is one of those names…shame on me.

On further listening, where have my ears been?

Reblog – Interview with Kate Carr —

Kate Carr is a sound artist whose work investigates our relationship with the natural world, and explores place and non-place, being and imagining. Her music is often composed using field recordings and sounds sourced from location. Besides her recorded output and live performances, she has contributed to artist residencies that have taken her all over […]

Lovely long interview here….

 

 

This piece explores sonic transmissions and emissions, radio, morse code, sonar, satellite, blue tooth, and wireless. From our efforts to track and transmit into our solar system using radio, to blue tooth connections across the room, this work examines the ephemeral sonic tools we use and the traces these leave as we attempt to reach each other. It is an ode to the fragility, dynamism and determination encapsulated in the ways we attempt to connect.

Contact is an edited version of a live performance at Radiophrenia Festival in Glasgow on May 15, 2019.

Listening to…

Windblow
by Ekin Fil

Artist notes:

“Windblow corresponds to an audible feeling of the mingling of different perspectives of an image or various perceptions of a sound from different angles.”

Thanks to A Closer Listen I came across Longform Editions an Australian distributor of longform listening tracks from a diverse range of artists.

“Longform Editions is a collective for deep listening – an ongoing series creating a space for extended, immersive music pieces from around the world”

Music that demands you sit and really immerse yourself in the soundworlds created.

Reblog – International Women’s Day 2019 — MAKING WAVES

There is always just so much posted on IWD and increasingly I feel overwhelmed by all the sheer amount of articles and playlists. However, here’s one that covers mostly Classical artists, some who use electronic processes but also covering several platforms such as Vimeo, Bandcamp and SoundCloud, all in one post. Concentrating on Australian composers – Really worth checking out.

The theme for International Women’s Day in 2019 is #BalanceforBetter. Happy International Women’s Day! The team would like to acknowledge that lists such as these invariably exclude more composers than they promote. However, we embrace the opportunity to reflect on the striking music featured by female-identifying composer in Making Waves playlists and the Making Conversation […]
