Another ‘find’ from YIKIS and a lovely Sunday afternoon listen. Reposting some YIKIS posts here as they have an interesting take on sounds, as well as a platform that actually supports artists that would never get a lot of attention otherwise. I’m all for that : )

On Monday, I discussed some of the TV show music cues I liked from this year. Today I’m providing a list of my favorite albums. I’m not really one for hierarchies. There is a top three (kinda), but after that it’s unranked because what does it mean to be the seventh-best record of the year really? That said, it’s no accident that many of these entries interrogate citizenship in a year profoundly defined by malevolent structures and forces that unequally restrict and allocate who gets to be a citizen and under what conditions. It’s also quite deliberate that many of these albums were self-produced by women resisting the pressure to justify themselves. It’s not a comprehensive list, as undoubtedly soon I’ll unearth a treasure or someone will recommend something.

Feminatronic is on Soundcloud,linking with as many artists from around the world, creating electronic music from as many genres as possible. Every Monday, I put together a playlist of usually 8 tracks, around a general theme and this week the focus is on Duo’s. Whatever your musical interests, there’s bound to be something waiting to be discovered.
I’ve put together an album, rereleasing some of the tracks I love that I feel are perfect for an album that helps put you to sleep. I’m calling it the Dreamtime Collection. On it you’ll find tracks like Asleep Next to You, Entering the Shell and Falling. While it could be argued that most of my music could put you to sleep, these tracks have been put together with that purpose in mind. The plan is to have several editions of the Dreamtime Collection, volumes, that include new material. This is the new project. Dreamtime Collection. We’ll see how many volumes we come up with. Enjoy!
Rhythms and Song is a new text published in the Reductive Four book . It’s in five parts: 1 and 5 are recordings of inner voices as well as prompts/scores for reading, 2, 3 and 4 were born out of very specific moments and materials: remembering a statue of Martyr Saint Vittoria in Rome during a gig (bones and wax), counting/listing some books of mine that got burned in a fire earlier this year (paper and fire), mixing the voices of Twin Peaks’ Nadine and Breton’s Nadja (silence and voice).
