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.”

Friday Focus – Polyphones

Polyphones

“Polyphones is a space of visibility created for women in the field of sonic and musical experimentation. This is a network born out of the reality of the Parisian scene with national and international offshoots…. Polyphones aims to promote an artistic practice, through concrete actions, such as, organising concerts, events, workshops, skill sharing, pooling resources and promoting independant labels and micro­publications.
Polyphones is present locally and virtually and manifests itself as a regular fixture in different contexts and proposals.”

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.
