Liz Helman is a London-based artist and independent curator working across different media, including sound, video, photography and painting.

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…

I have enjoyed reading the series these last weeks and recommend this highly informative and positive series of posts. Sounds like there are big plans for the future and I hope they come to fruition. More of the series here

Listening to…

Instead of playlists this Summer, I’m going to highlight and post compilations that may be of interest to listeners, covering all electronic genres and diverse in sound. Although this collection is not solely electronic, it does spotlight some of the artists creating experimental music.

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.

10). Unlearning Black Sound in Black Artistry: Examining the Quiet in Solange’s A Seat At the Table

Kimberly Williams

On May 18th, 2017, Solange Knowles took viewers on an expedition as she glided, danced and “agonized” in a “joyful praise break” on the floor of New York City’s Guggenheim museum. Drawing from the museum’s narrative of introspection and multi-sensory connection, Solange’s performance of “An Ode To. . .” prompted viewers to relearn and reorient the melodies of A Seat at the Table (2016). Solange’s performance in this setting hearkened listeners to new concepts and emotions in the record they didn’t catch before as they consumed it. This begs the question– what other sonic elements have we neglected to identify in A Seat…
