As some of you may know, I am an electronic artist myself and sometimes I need some time to create things. It’s been a bit quiet here, I know, and my presence elsewhere has been pared back a little as I try to work on some music.
I will be posting but not as much, although I am trying to maintain the playlists, Twitter feed, Facebook and Instagram as best I can.
In the meantime, here’s some Furchick that made me smile today –
Ludmila Frajt (December 31, 1919 – March 14, 1999) was a Yugoslav and Serbian composer. She wrote choral, orchestral and chamber works, music for films and radio-dramas, electro-acoustic works, as well as music for children.
A pioneer of female writing in the domain of Serbian music, she often wrote ‘female’ vocal genres such as lullabies and threnody (music for mourning the dead) .
