Beatriz Ferreyra ~ Echos +

At the moment, like many, I find myself taking a step back and reflecting on how to move forward but not sure how my little journey in sound will progress.
In the meantime I am using my time to catch up and revisit sites and reviews I have missed, this being a case from A Closer Listen.
Actually, I spent this afternoon listening in full to Echos+ and it seems sonically to reflect the mood.

a closer listen

There’s a memorial aspect to acousmatic sounds that can lead towards a conceptual end-point usually avoided by Schaefferian humanism: the severing of the sound from its source is a kind of death. Echos + is an in-depth exploration of their afterlife, the composer turned into a caretaker (without the apocalyptic overtones of the famous project of the same name) dedicated to the consideration of sounds’ new state. Like a written document, the recording marks an aural element’s transition from life into its other, a technological aid that turns preservation into an art of re-signification. To care for these sounds in death is not to simply reproduce them, nor is it to circumscribe them in a narrative about mourning for the loss of a certain world, but to help reconfiguretheir meaning in a context that is no longer their own.

Hi Everyone…Whoever, Wherever

To support musicians during the Covid-19 pandemic, Bandcamp is waiving our revenue share on all sales this Friday, March 20, from midnight to midnight PST.

Unfortunately, I can’t post everyone’s links here as there are just too many artists, labels and collectives – luckily.

However, we can all help a little, if we buy something via Bandcamp today. Go on…. You know you want to

I realise not everyone is on Bandcamp, so like many others out there, I will continue to do just what I’ve been doing so far, highlighting electronic artists on as many platforms as possible.

Speak to you all soon and in the meantime I send all my best wishes wherever and whoever, fwiw : )

#IWD2020

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 –
