Spotlight On…

I have been having a giant clear-out and I found loads of scraps of paper accumulated over the last 8 years with artist names on them.
So I’ve decided that for 2020 I will post a few here at a time and add them to the artist directory, as well as posting on Twitter and Facebook.

There are many…

As usual, no order – no preference

Longlistens

Eclectic Electronic Soundscapes
Sometimes tracks are just too long for the usual playlist I put together so I decided to put together bite-sized playlists for longer tracks.
Bite-sized in number of artists but not scrimping on the length and quality of the listening : )
Take some time and immerse in the sound waves.

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 on this playlist are tfarhad, ramsha, Alina Moldonado, Trinh Hue Luong,Theremidi Orchestra with Irena Tomazin and Liz Helman.

 

Also if you wish another suggestion of a longlisten, you cannot fail with this –

National Poetry Day..at least here

National Poetry Day gives me an excuse to repost a couple of playlists and a favourite of mine by electronic music pioneer Ruth White : )

‘late autumns, winters, springtimes steeped in mud,
o drowsy seasons i love and i praise you…’

 


Reblog – Teresa Rampazzi’s voice and her unique piece “Taras” — laura zattra

Curious to hear what Teresa Rampazzi’s (1914-2001) voice sounded like? This is a unique opportunity. This audio track I’ve uploaded on SoundCloud is part of a radio programme aired in 1985 “Le nuove frontiere della musica” (New frontiers of music; director: Tonino Delfino). Rampazzi and Delfino are discussing her piece “Taras su tre dimensioni”. The […]

#Rolemodels – Lena Platonos

Lena Platonos and the secret sound of Greek electronica

Thanks to reissues by labels like Dark Entries and Into The Light Records, this electronic pioneer is reaching new audiences. Sarah Souli tells her story.

Wonderful overview here on Resident Advisor


Released in 1984, ‘Μάσκες Ηλίου’ (‘Sun Masks’) was Lena Platonos’ first record to feature her own words and vocals… “I began to reverse my thought process, to let melodies fade out, to turn to minimalism, to experiment on my Yamaha C60 synthesizer and a variety of “boxes” which I used to change the sound of my voice as well as the sound of the synthesizer” says Lena. The album featured experiments with different sounds and a new batch of electronic equipment, such as the legendary Roland TR 808 drum machine.


Lena Platonos – Shadow Of Blood



The album is made exclusively using analog synthesizers and heavily features the iconic Roland TR-808 drum machine. Lena narrates each song, reciting her own surreal Greek poetry with unique skill.
