“Making Waves is a monthly series of curated playlists streaming one hour of quality, new composed music. Founded in 2015, Making Waves shines a spotlight on the music of Australian composers. Fresh playlists are released on the first day of each month and older playlists are made available all year round via our archives; perfect for those with just a few minutes to explore one track or for hours perusing a myriad of diverse sound-worlds.”

Not solely electronic. Much is Classical music and / electroacoustic but increasingly there are electronic elements in the compositions and a great introduction to Australian composers. Really recommend listening to the beautifully presented playlists.

 

 

 

Weekly Theme – Latin American Electronic and Electroacoustic

This Weeks Theme is – Minimalism doesn’t mean Nothing

Feminatronic #70 is a playlist of “minimalist” tracks but that does not mean they that have little going on sonically,(sound , noise or voice), you just have to listen for the nuances and there is a lot more going on under the surface. Possibly, you might like to listen with headphones to get the full effect.
Artists on this playlist are –
Hyaena Fierling, Patrizia Mattioli, Miniature Zebra, Queef, Ola Saad, Crys Cole, Rachel Lancaster and Christine Webster.

 Artist of the Week is Jo Thomas

“Jo Thomas is an award winning London based composer who choses to work through sculpting electronic sound into an aural tapestry of technological,biological and emotional states. Her work is based around human fallibility, she chooses to represent the human in sound with a discourse of delicate and detailed sonic failure using a sophisticated combination of micro sound, micro tonal and glitch material.

She creates organic complex and beautiful music’s which are written specifically for spaces and different formats of music release.Her works exist in the extreme of large scale and miniature, striving to work with momentary engagement and long listening continuums.”

 

Weekly Theme – Rhythms

The theme this week Rhythm and Playlist #37 is a diverse collection of rhythmic tracks, using a whole array of electronic processes. The artists are Pilocka Krach, Andrea Parker, Sarah Badr / FRKTL, Madoka, Leah Kardos, Elodie Lauten, Deena Abdelwahed and Sabina Covarrubius.

Weekly Theme – Nothing but the Stars

Playlist #65 is a journey around the Cosmos.
This playlist focusses on the Stars and Cosmos. It gives a chance to spotlight mostly but not exclusively, Ambient Space, Drift and Drone music where women have been generally under represented, although I am discovering there are more out there than I realised. This is music to immerse yourself in and take time to listen for the nuances and changes.

Artists are – Iotronica, Suzanne Doucet, Zalys, Lomita, Joanne Gabriel, Isabel Porto Nogueira, Patrizia Mattioli, and Katlyn Aurelia Smith,

Artists on this playlist are –
Caroline Park, Marina Vesic, Miki Yui, Delphine Dora and Bruno Duplant, SonicBright, Marlene Radice, Olivia Block and Julia Teles.
