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.

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 […]

Reblog – Furchick – Live on Blurred and Obscured with Jonathan Herweg, 8/23/2015

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Furchick
title: Live on Blurred and Obscured with Jonathan Herweg, 8/23/2015
keywords: noise, experimental

Furchick’s live performance as situated and safely tucked away on the Freemusicarchive is a feast for the headphone wearing lot that needs something to slide down through their ears easily but risky. It’s not going to be soft and will possibly mark its territory in your tissue as it cuts through time, but see it as a beautiful tattoo that you could proudly show off to all the other sounds or music pieces that might fall down your ear holes. Furchick applies her wizardry in a way that the combination of mystery, pleasure and perhaps even slight pain is coming at you in such an adventurous way, that experiencing it feels like spending sufficient time in a piercing shop that you haven’t visited before & the overcoming of pure excitement that overrules the possible action…
