Plum (Shona Maguire) hosts the Femmecult January 2014 podcast showcasing some of the musicians that have been influential on her work along the way.
Plum is an electro-pop producer & multi-instrumentalist who became the first female artist ever to win a Scottish Alternative Music Award, securing “Best Electronic” award in March 2013, having been heralded “One to Watch for 2013” by Best of British Unsigned in January 2013, and with her album The Seed in the ‘Best Albums of 2012’ list for many bloggers home and abroad.
An hour of new discoveries (Ellen Fullman, Christina Kubisch, & Jocy de Oliveria) and some Buchla pieces that I’ve been listening to since Don Buchla’s recent passing. Including a track which is apparently Buchla & Keiji Haino, although I can’t find anything online to suggest they ever met or worked together – but it sounds good 😉
I met with multidisciplinary artist and improvising musician Blanca Regina, and two of her collaborators Steve Beresford and Karel Doing, to discuss her practice and a selection of recordings. Tune into NTS.live for Fractal Meat on Monday night / Tuesday Morning 11th/12th April to hear the interview and tracks, 1am-3am.

Moon Ate the Dark is the neoclassical-infused drone collaborative project between Welsh pianist Anna Rose Carter and Canadian producer Christopher Brett Bailey. The London-based artists’ two full-length releases – 2012’s self-titled debut and this year’s highly-anticipated follow-up (‘Moon Ate The Dark II’), both released on the prestigious Berlin-based imprint Sonic Pieces – forges a deeply affecting experience for the heart and mind: the rich, dense textures of Bailey’s production is masterfully interwoven with Carter’s stunningly beautiful piano-based compositions.
