MIRA CALIX (1970 – 2022)

“…she pushed the boundaries between electronic music, classical music and art in a truly unique way.” – Warp Records

Mira Calix in an interview with Dr Tara Rodgers in Pink Noises



I am absolutely beside myself to hear of the death of Mira Calix.
She was one of the rare artists who supported my little venture through the years and for that long distance online connection, I am grateful. Thoughts go out to her family and friends.❤

ICYMI 2021

I’m trying to do some of the things that have been left for a while, so here’s the latest recap on releases of 2021…

I DON’T DO LISTS…PT5

Ha ha…I don’t do lists except on here🤣🤣

OK, I do do lists but not in the sense I started this a coupe of years ago. I post things individually on twitter and Instagram to give the releases space in their own right but I suppose when I put them together in an overview here, they consist of a list 😂😂

…but there’s no preferences, order, rank and that’s what is important to me.

Right…now I’ve got that out of the way here’s the next collection and due to other comitments I am going to continue the icymi non lists for this month of January.

Which brings me to the important bit – Happy New Year and all the Best for 2022 and thanks for sticking around.

I DON’T DO LISTS…PT 3

Actually, despite being in the middle of a pandemic maelstrom there have been some wonderful releases in 2021 as this next round up shows : )

I DON’T DO LISTS..PT2

Here are some more eclectic releases from 2021…

I DON’T DO LISTS BUT…pt1

Every year sites, reviewers, podcasts and media, post long lists of the best of this years releases and I find this problematic for many reasons but a major one is they often miss those well under the radar releases concentrating on particular popular genres, artists and labels, as well as creating subjective lists that cause divided opinions.

I’ve always just tried to post as many of the years releases that I’ve come across during December and this year is no different. I will be posting them here, on Twitter and Instagram.

My posts are not exhaustive and omit unwittingly many many releases but given that, without any preferences, rank or order here are the first collection…
