A thought…

Food

I have been putting together playlists since starting out 7 years ago and what never ceases to amaze me is how many of us are out there creating all this electronic music  (and I use that loosely) and much of it goes unheard and /or known. Here is a case in mind.

Recently, I had an email from CHEWn!Zine wondering if there were any tracks by female identifying artists on the subject of food? This got me thinking and was challenging to say the least but what this playlist also highlights is that many of the artists on this list were not heard of by many listeners…

” I didn’t realise there were so many….”

Well yes! We are out there. You just have to look  : )

Please excuse –

a) Unfortunately, there was no embed so you have to listen on SoundCloud

b) the very loose food theme with some tracks,(although it probably demonstrates how my mind works) but in the end, I think it’s worth it.

As with all the playlists, there are no prefences to artist or genre and they very eclectic. They are jumping off points to discoveries. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists….

Artists are – Asesina Ilustrada, AGF Antye Greie, Poly Chain, Jenn Grossman, Multa Nox, Anne Lepere, Martyna Poznańska, LaMetaFisica, SHITNEY, Marilyn McNeal, minicomponente, Sifonics, Rumblin_ Cynth_ Rampo, sunmoonstar, Sabiwa, Martina Bertoni, MORITA, Maja S.K Ratkje, Anna Zaradny, La Cosa Preziosa, Petra Kaps, swantje lichtenstein, Marjorie Van Halteren, Ella Guro, Cyanching, brthlns glnds, IhearU, _blank, Karine Dumont, miniature zebra, Hyaena Fierling, Fia Fiell, Blevin Blectum, Furchick, Magali Babin, Tamara Filyavich,Yogo Yolk, Yakui, Helena Krobarth,pinnel.

National Poetry Day gives me an excuse to repost a couple of playlists and a favourite of mine by electronic music pioneer Ruth White : )

#Rolemodels – Sound Art

So you know when I said I had a lot in my draft file, well here’s something I put together in 2015 when I started this journey and forgot to post but fits really well in #Rolemodels.

I have often wondered…

WHAT IS SOUND ART?

This was part of a series on Sound  Art and the women who have been and are, at the forefront of this highly eclectic and diverse art form but I never posted this until now…
