So, It’s IWD tomorrow and the theme is #ChooseToChallenge. Well, I’m choosing to challenge the norm and not getting involved with anything on the day.
Hello – we’re here everyday
In the meantime, here are some playlists I put together for 2018 of about 150 artists but as I keep saying, this is just the tip of the iceberg –
Over the years I have lived in hope that there would no longer be a need for #IWD and that I wouldn’t have to keep posting about this.
I am a dreamer.
I’m not going to put a negative slant on this as it does give a chance to genuinely support and give three cheers to many women ( and I mean anyone who identifies as female) around the world who work tirelessly to improve the lives of all people culturally, economically, politically and any other spheres that I’ve omitted.
I just wish that the world would get a move on and get it’s act together and just recognise that we all deserve to be heard and deserve to have parity, equality and visibility.
I’m an inherent optimist.
When I’m in this sort of mind I like to listen to this –
In lieu of posting playlists for IWD….

FEMALE IDENTIFIED PRODUCERS
by International Compilation
Experimental, ambient, electroacoustic, industrial, noise, ritual
In lieu of IWD playlists, I will be posting this week, compilations and various artists releases, that may be of interest or in case you missed them.
In no order of preference, I am beginning with this compilation of electronic artists based in the Hague, which I found out about via a Yeah I Know it Sucks review
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.
Website – Making Waves – Discover New Australian Music
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 […]

To try to get as many artists some visibility I have been posting compilations. Again, this is not an exhaustive list and are just suggestions of starting points . I may add to it in future.
In no real order or preference and yes, some are diverse….
Latin American sound explorations.
Experimental noise, noisecore, speedcore, harsh noise, noise wall, power electronics Vancouver
A monstrous compilation but only a fraction of french contemporary sound creativity.
Inspired by the new scene of independent female artists and electronic music producers from South America.
An experimental music compilation featuring ten female composers from far east Asia (Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, China).
This multi-genre compilation was inspired by Ionesco’s play ‘Rhinoceros’ with various artists voicing their protest via sound.
Experimental, ambient, electroacoustic, industrial, noise, ritual.
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 : )
