REVIEW REBLOG – Eli Gras (a amazing multidisciplinary artist, performer, inventor,entertainer, musician…)

The creativity and pure inventiveness of Eli Gras :)) An artist well worth watching all the videos and checking out more. Courtesy to Yeah I Know it Sucks for this overview.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Eli Gras is a multidisciplinary artist active in lots of creative fields, but mostly known for her excellent career in experimental underground music since the early eighties. Her experimentations have covered all kinds of musical paths, from pure experimentalism to electropop, minimalism, funk, and so much more. What is striking to me from this artist is that she invents her own instruments, which of course brings a completely new and unique sound perspective to the ears and minds.

There are lots of videos of her live performances playing her inventions, which of course is an exciting thing to see and hear on the digital highway; but its even better and more exciting when you can hear and see her performing live in front of you. In a couple of days (upcoming Saturday 14th November) she will be doing her magical thing on the experimental cozy toxic grounds of Gifgrond.

REVIEW REPOST – Furchick’s stop motion animations

Furchick – Ever ready to shine a light. This has brightened the Monday gloom. Thanks Yeah I Know it Sucks.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

1Not very long ago we featured the new ‘Chris Cunningham’ of the next generation Jan Strach, but it’s only fair that there should be a female counter part to claim this precious throne of video art. Without all too much extravaganza I would like to inform you that our team of reporters and researchers did find the female ‘Cunningham’ of our next generation. Strangely this creative video artist had been sitting right under our noses, camouflaged as an experimental sound musician. Let’s give you a hint; it’s furry and has feathers?

Furchick!

But how is that possible, how on earth can Furchick be the female next generation ‘Cunningham’? Well, ladies and gentle males as you must know by now; everything is possible! And I might even make the remark that besides everything being possible; nothing is impossible!

Many scientists did take a good skeptical look at the proof that…

REBLOG – EKHO: Women in Sonic Art – Ingrid Plum

Here is a great short overview about Ingrid Plum.
Courtesy to Ekho: Women in Sonic Art for this post.

:::::::::::: Ekho :::::::::::: Women in Sonic Art

Ingrid Plum is a Brighton-based Composer/Musician www.ingridplum.com

“I find that feminist context emerges as part of my practice through my eschewing of boundaries that would be projected upon my choice of roles, rather than by making work that individually and specifically addresses feminist issues… I do not usually frame my work as feminist in itself. I am a feminist who makes work and my practice infers these issues – not by addressing them directly by subject, but by making work that exists despite and in spite of any gender gap that would deny me a contextual space for my work.”

Submission to ‘Ekho:: Toward a Repetitive Sounding of Difference’

“I followed Alvin Lucier’s example in ‘I am sitting in a room’, using the piano instead of a room and Nils Frahm’s ‘Mi’ as the source…I set up 2 Neumann 183 microphones to capture the sound of a Yamaha C6 grand piano…

MIXCLOUD SPOTLIGHT – Fractal Meat on a Spongy Bone with Ingrid Plum

Due to technical stupidness ( probably on my behalf) Here is the show –

REBLOG – Fractal Meat on a Spongy Bone with Ingrid Plum

I haven’t gone mad but posting this for two reasons. Firstly it links in with some items about Ingrid Plum and gives Fractal Meat a plug as it is a radio show that gives space and promotes experimental, noise and sound music being created today. Well worth visiting.

Fractal Meat

On Friday 18th September Ingrid Plum will join me in the studio to perform live and play some tracks from her forthcoming album, Plangent. Tune into NTS from 8-10am.

Using extended technique and improvisation, Plum combines her voice with field recordings and electronics to create layered soundscapes blending spoken word and song. Her recordings and live performance have the honesty and intimacy of a confessional alongside the sonic scope of the forests and open coastlines of her native Denmark, a landscape that inspires much of her music.
