#Rolemodels – Jean Eichelberger Ivey

There was a long thread about pioneers of electronic music on twitter and the usual names cropped up but as is often the case  there were names I hadn’t heard of and Jean Eichelberger Ivey is one of those names…shame on me.

On further listening, where have my ears been?

Better late than never for me here –

#Rolemodels – Sound Art

So you know when I said I had a lot in my draft file, well here’s something I put together in 2015 when I started this journey and forgot to post but fits really well in #Rolemodels.

I have often wondered…

WHAT IS SOUND ART?

This was part of a series on Sound  Art and the women who have been and are, at the forefront of this highly eclectic and diverse art form but I never posted this until now…

Hiatus

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 –

Review Reblog – Agnès Pe ‬- Para Ana (music video)‬

I came across Agnes Pe via Yeah I Know it Sucks some time ago and have followed her avant garde, witty and experimental work ever since.
“Wasn’t that a marvellous experience?”
Yes….and recommended too are her radio sound collages – Mitt Pate : )

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Today’s Discovery….

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Electric Elizabeth
Title: FutureConeB
Keywords: experimental, noise, video

Electric Elizabeth’s description of one of her actual music videos online sounds way simpler than what it deserves. She wrote “Some slowed down footage of water with one of my tracks over the top.” Of course that’s what it is, literally speaking, but imaginative speaking there is so much more to it. First of all the ‘one of her tracks’ that she added to the visual video is one that fits the water footage so extremely well, so much so that it might even be a bit frightening in how good it fits.

It’s like every bit of water flow, every wrinkle on top and in it is attached to the sounds generated by her track. It is as if the water knows exactly when to move and is triggered by her sounds, or that Electric Elizabeth had made the track…
