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.”

Listening to…

” 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.

hashtag Everyday is International Women’s Day

I’ve been neglecting here recently and today is no exception as although it is International Women’s Day, I’ve spent a lot of time recently doing what I love.. creating electronic music.

Anyway, everyday is IWD here but I did try a little experiment.

How much electronic music of all genres is being created by artists who just happen to identify as female?

So the following playlists are made up of  tracks that i’ve listened to but not all, in the last month. I haven’t included some due to their length and for that I apologise if you are one of those artists. Of course, there are many many artists that I haven’t heard as yet.
As always, these are in no way an exhaustive list. I’m always just skimming the surface of creativity and as ever they are just starting points…it really is the tip of the iceberg of some of the music I’ve listened to this past few weeks and doesn’t cover all the artists I am following or who follow.
I  just wanted to see for myself how many artists are out there creating a huge range of sounds and I’ve deliberately not put them in any order to underline how eclectic they are. Brace yourselves for IWD2018 playlists –

Today’s Discovery – Feed Goals by Enchanted Lands

 

“…assemblages, showing intricate weaving and arranging of sound materials. Her tracks form strange scenes or frames where just when the sound seems to settle down a turnover point is reached and a delicate change of balance results in a whole new plateau. Receiving cues from ASMR, impact blasts, and natural phenomena, these elements become sound ingredients that add microscopic texture, sensuality and depth to their complementary sounds. Moving beyond any high or low fidelity, the nature of the sounds blend together into a space where compression artefacts, phone mic’ing and high-tech sound design mingle fluently. From weeping wind harps to whispered confessionals to immense trance reveries, the result is a sound that eludes itself and forces the ear to expect some curious inversion around every corner.”

Couldn’t attempt to describe this any better – A sonic delight.
