Reblog – on palto flats and wrwtfww’s reissue of midori takada’s seminal through the looking glass

I have loved this record for so long and over the years have visited it on many occasions. It is “a masterpiece failed by its own time”. – like so many that I could name. While other artists are feted and gain all the publicity, there are many who deserve as much accolade and praise – and finally, Midori Takada is getting the recognition she long deserved.

Although it doesn’t quite fit into the electronic field as such, please try and listen, and take in the 40 minutes that demonstrate how often gems are lost due to fashion in music, lack of distribution, knowledge and being in the wrong time and place.

It is sublime.

Friday Focus – Women’s Audio Mission

Women’s Audio Mission addresses two critical issues:

  1. Less than 5% of the people creating the sounds, music and media in the daily soundtrack of our lives are women.
  2. The alarming 70% decline in women/girls enrolling in college STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) programs since the year 2000.

Women’s Audio Mission uses music and media and an incredible “carrot” of a training environment –  the only professional recording studio in the world built and run by women –  to attract over 1,200 under-served women and girls every year to STEM and creative technology studies that inspire them to amplify their voices and become the innovators of tomorrow. WAM’s award-winning curriculum weaves art and music with science, technology and computer programming and works to close the critical gender gap in creative technology careers.

Multa Nox’s Dreamy New Drone Explores the Loneliness in Human Connection   – Thump

 

” under the umbrella of ambient music, she works with damp synth patches, blustery vocals, and foggy effects processing. Her pieces move slowly and deceptively, producing an illusory stillness—a respite from the world where you can stop and think for a second.”
