We need no swords

yyyy

With a new work released on her Bandcamp almost every day, the Scottish sound artist and poet Elizabeth Veldon has amassed a vast and almost overwhelming discography. But those releases, ranging from immersive drones, free improvised piano jags and tough scrubs of noise, are rarely less than compelling. In this episode, Elizabeth and I discuss creativity, political music and a whole lot of other stuff. We also premier two new works – a series of piano improvisations and a long-form slice of ominous drone.

Reblog – The Tape Escape #10

Listening tonight to…

JO KALI

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 😉

REBLOG – Fractured Air 46: Moon Ate the Dark ‘Moon Over Blood Mountain’

Courtesy to Fractured Air for the reblog and suggest you listen to Moon Ate the Dark, who I have featured previously on Feminatronic. Great playlist : ))

FRACTURED AIR

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.
