Poetry Day 2018

It’s Poetry Day , at least here in the UK and thought I’d post a couple of older playlists based on the connections between sound and poetry –

Listening to…

“Components of local experimental beats and a wide gamut of electronic music draw from Taiwan’s irregular view / architectures and buildings, muggy, emissions-filled air, and hectic streetscapes, while Mandarin Chinese and Japanese influences marry intricate beats and whispering lyrics. All these tiny elements serve as pondering-points on the darkness that underpins the most intense emotions of the city’s aggregations.”

” blistering hardstep gabba/techno” …..Yep

 

 

Listening to Soundcloud Playlists

I have reached playlist #134  and this must be one of my favourites. You have to give it time and it’s not easy listening but it covers all genres and artists and if you like this one there are another 133 waiting for you here

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes –
During the past 5 years of Feminatronic I have been on a bit of a personal sonic journey around the world with the focus on human beings who just happen to identify as women and create electronic sounds /noise /music via a huge plethora of electronic means. This playlist hopes to demonstrate some of the eclecticism that I have listened to this past couple of months but as usual it is just the tip of the iceberg.

As with all the playlists, they are jumping off points to discoveries. They are not meant to be definitive. Just let some of the tracks play onto the next….follow up on “sounds like”….see who’s following, many artists follow other artists…..

Artists are Hallie Smith, Zyklus, Tullia Benedicta, Odio Sis, Alessandra Zerbinati,Skoddie, MG Raconteur, Anna Peaker, Isabel Porto Nogueira, Bana Haffar, Eartheater, Enchantedlands, Yara Mekawei, AGF, Georgina Canifru, Jaclyn Kendall, Monika Ze, Lesley Romano, Flavia Goa, The Lady C Universe, Roslyn Steer, Rachel Lancaster, kobto, BorealNetwork, Cruel Diagonals, Zavoloka, Nadia Struiwigh, Minerva, Laurel Halo and Renu.

Let’s start at the very beginning. Can you tell us how you got involved in composing, and what was your very first piece of gear? I was around 8 years old when I started taking piano lessons. We had an antique Yamaha upright piano in our living room where I often used to sit and […]

XPO 201​-​3
by Les Graciés

Les Graciés (2012-ongoing) is the conjunction of Eric Douglas Porter (Afrikan Sciences) and Gaël Segalen (IhearU), a French – American tandem of sister & brother in sound, a evident and karmic encounter of free spirit music makers, searchers of spectrum and rhythm for distinction in sound, in full sympathy with the unknown.

To try to get as many artists some visibility I have been posting compilations. Again, this is not an exhaustive list and are just suggestions of starting points . I may add to it in future.

In no real order or preference and yes, some are diverse….

 

Latin American sound explorations.


 

Experimental noise, noisecore, speedcore, harsh noise, noise wall, power electronics Vancouver


 

A monstrous compilation but only a fraction of french contemporary sound creativity.


 

Inspired by the new scene of independent female artists and electronic music producers from South America.


 

An experimental music compilation featuring ten female composers from far east Asia (Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, China).


 

This multi-genre compilation was inspired by Ionesco’s play ‘Rhinoceros’ with various artists voicing their protest via sound.


 

Experimental, ambient, electroacoustic, industrial, noise, ritual.
