A thought…

Food

I have been putting together playlists since starting out 7 years ago and what never ceases to amaze me is how many of us are out there creating all this electronic music  (and I use that loosely) and much of it goes unheard and /or known. Here is a case in mind.

Recently, I had an email from CHEWn!Zine wondering if there were any tracks by female identifying artists on the subject of food? This got me thinking and was challenging to say the least but what this playlist also highlights is that many of the artists on this list were not heard of by many listeners…

” I didn’t realise there were so many….”

Well yes! We are out there. You just have to look  : )

Please excuse –

a) Unfortunately, there was no embed so you have to listen on SoundCloud

b) the very loose food theme with some tracks,(although it probably demonstrates how my mind works) but in the end, I think it’s worth it.

As with all the playlists, there are no prefences to artist or genre and they very eclectic. They are jumping off points to discoveries. 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 – Asesina Ilustrada, AGF Antye Greie, Poly Chain, Jenn Grossman, Multa Nox, Anne Lepere, Martyna Poznańska, LaMetaFisica, SHITNEY, Marilyn McNeal, minicomponente, Sifonics, Rumblin_ Cynth_ Rampo, sunmoonstar, Sabiwa, Martina Bertoni, MORITA, Maja S.K Ratkje, Anna Zaradny, La Cosa Preziosa, Petra Kaps, swantje lichtenstein, Marjorie Van Halteren, Ella Guro, Cyanching, brthlns glnds, IhearU, _blank, Karine Dumont, miniature zebra, Hyaena Fierling, Fia Fiell, Blevin Blectum, Furchick, Magali Babin, Tamara Filyavich,Yogo Yolk, Yakui, Helena Krobarth,pinnel.

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 : )

Words translated from Charles Baudelaire, “Brumes et pluies” (Mists and Rains) Cover artwork by Henri Matisse.

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

 


Reblog – International Women’s Day 2019 — MAKING WAVES

There is always just so much posted on IWD and increasingly I feel overwhelmed by all the sheer amount of articles and playlists. However, here’s one that covers mostly Classical artists, some who use electronic processes but also covering several platforms such as Vimeo, Bandcamp and SoundCloud, all in one post. Concentrating on Australian composers – Really worth checking out.

Website  –  Making Waves – Discover New Australian Music

 

The theme for International Women’s Day in 2019 is #BalanceforBetter. Happy International Women’s Day! The team would like to acknowledge that lists such as these invariably exclude more composers than they promote. However, we embrace the opportunity to reflect on the striking music featured by female-identifying composer in Making Waves playlists and the Making Conversation […]
