Although it is very difficult to get hold of Teresa Rampazzis’ music you can hear samples of her work here.

Thanks to Laura Zattra  for highlighting the Italian Pioneers of Electronic Music on her blog.

HOLLY HERNDON – BODY SOUND

I was thinking about the Sounding Out post and about the Fluxus movement and here is a wonderful modern piece utilising the body as an instrument.

If you visit the Infinite Greyscale site here, you can read further about the release.

There is a great review at A Closer Listen and worth a revisit (as I did today).

EXPERIMENTAL SEASON – TWO COMPOSERS

As part of the season highlighting the huge variety of experimental electronic artists I came across this piece by Elizabeth Veldon and it connects well with a pioneer of experimental electronic muisc – Eliane Radigue.

The Reach of ResonanceSteve Elkins’ thoughtful, fascinating film about experimental music and musicians has been making the festival rounds for the past few years, and is finally available to screen on demand.  It’s exactly what our site is about, and is highly recommended to all of our readers.

One need not be familiar with our site, or even with experimental music, to be familiar with one of the names: last year, John Luther Adams won both a Pulitzer Prize and a Grammy for Becoming Ocean.  In a coup of sorts, this film captures the composer as he’s becoming inspired to create that very work.  It’s a perfect starting point for the film, because Adams’ music, although intensely creative, is still accessible to mainstream audiences.  Meanwhile, Misa Masaoka interacts with the natural world while Jon Rose and Bob Ostertag explore the porous line between music and politics.  Their subject matter could not be…

Spending an afternoon looking through the Experimental artists as part of the season I am doing on Experimental Electronic Music and Fractal Meat on Spongy Bone is a good place to start.

Fractal Meat

Phantom Chips plays live this Friday 28th November – tune in via NTS, 8-10am

Phantom Chips performs with an array of home made electronic instruments, samplers and wearable noisemakers. Concocting rhythms from manipulated found and recorded sounds Phantom Chips invites the audience to wear and play her costumes and join in with the audio. The costumes create sound through movement and allow audience members to experiment with a brand-new form of musical expression. The deliberately clumsy and awkward interfaces invite playfulness and improvisation.

Australian-born Tara Pattenden works in the field of analog electronics, noise performance and soft circuitry. She has been making noise and mess for over 15 years performing with kunt, monster zoku onsomb and as schmelfhelp.
