NEWS UPDATE – SYRPHE – TODAYS DISCOVERY – FAR EAST ASIAN ELECTRONIC ARTISTS

SYRPHE has a new website with articles, gig lists and this piece –

Feminism in electronic and experimental music, the failure of most Westerners.

Interesting perspective here and a wonderful insight into what artists are creating in other parts of the World, namely Africa and Asia. I have cited Syrphe on many occasions as a site that tirelessly promotes the creativity of artists in the electronic and experimental fields and the original playlists that I had on 8Tracks were based on the discoveries that I came across via Syrphe. The 8Track playlists I am in the middle of replicating on SoundCloud but this exhaustive list will add to the roster of artists I have linked with from not only Africa and Asia but also South America.
Finally, I recommend you read this article and discover for yourself. It’s great that there is an index of many of the under represented artists as well as the more known.

Here is a recommendation from last year but it still stands –

Todays recommendation from the Syrphe label is this wonderful sampler of  Far East Asian  experimental electronic artists and I shall be discovering more in the coming season but in the meantime –

TODAYS DISCOVERY – NAOMI KASHIWAGI

Naomi K

Naomi Kashiwagi is an award-winning artist who produces sound works, installations, performances and works on paper, that draw upon her cultural heritage, an intrinsic fusion of two cultures, British and Japanese. Drawing is central to Kashiwagi’s practice and she makes drawings using a range of media including diamonds, typewriters, gramophones and pianos, as well as graphite and pen.


The reason this artist is my Todays Discovery is her work with Gramophone records entitled –  Gramophonica

SOUNDCLOUD SPOTLIGHT – LOMITA

This is a new idea I am trying here, to spotlight the SoundCloud pages of artists, many of which only have their SoundCloud pages as their web presence, especially new or under the radar artists and so this is another means to give a bit of a boost  and shine a light on their music.

This week introduces  Lomita
