AUGUST 2022 LISTENING

During this long hot summer, like many, I have been preoccupied with other seemingly more pressing things than my website. Indeed, I am still trying to work out what to do with this site and also how to continue with Feminatronic.

That aside I have had a month of listening to music at night-time when it’s been cooler and often watching the sun set.

Here is Augusts listening, mostly (but not all) introspective, meditative and go well with the setting of the sun –

PLAYLIST JULY 2022

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
Sometimes tracks are just too long for the usual playlist I put together so I decided to put together bite sized playlists for longer tracks.
Bite sized in number of artists but not scrimping on the length and quality of the listening : )

As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. 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 Katharina Hauke & Nguyễn Baly, Nadia Struiwigh, Christi Denton and Cruel Diagonals.

Take some time and immerse in the sound waves.

LISTENING TO THIS MONTH

It’s been a bit quiet here at the moment. Having a rethink about this site and how to continue with Feminatronic but here are some recent releases and listening I have come across in the past month.

I have been concentrating on Night Listening on Twitter, so some of the releases are quiet and reflective but not all.

I’ve always added this short note to all the playlists –
As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists….
but I thought I’d put it into practice myself.
I started with the first artist and then followed the sound trail to other connected artists.

There is no preference on first choice or the sound trail but the playlist is always eclectic and it does give a chance for artists to be heard who may slip through the net : )


Beginning with Susan Campos, artists are jjjolll, Concepcion Huerta, Mabe Fratti, Slvj, Taticocteauselfie, Itzel Itzel, Teixido, Montse Perez Lima, Ana Mora, Klang Reverie, dibuk, S Ø M A , Marcela Lucatelli and Carmen Canale.

“I wanted to contribute to the conversation around women pioneers of electronic and electroacoustic music in this mix, showing the Latin American composers’ elegance and complexity around the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. These works are in dialogue with the avant-garde movements of the twentieth century, but they are not simply reverberations from the Anglo-European traditions; they condensed a unique and particular spirit.
