TODAYS DISCOVERY – Hyaena Fierling

Hyaena Fierling

Develops work in the field of sound action since 1999 as composer and investigator in the field of sound structuring; dedicates herself to experimental/improvised music since 1996.

Her work is based on improvisation and exploration, involving the capture of sounds and soundscapes (field work) as well as programming and editing (based on the canons of film sound) of sound sequences originated from unorthodox sound sources – wood and metal objects, stones, different instruments (prepared bass guitar, Hexluth – electrified luth, Moog and Micro Korg synths) or the exploration of sound possibilities in spaces with uncanny acoustic characteristics – the same sound sequences at a later time edited and sequence according to soundtrack assemblage composition, breaking the borders of experimental sound and music in cinematic space.

WEB FOCUS – Many Many Women – About

Here is a fantastic index of innovative composers, improvisers, and sonic artists which if you fulfil the criteria as an artist you can request to be added. Follow the About link –

The focus of this index is on women in experimental/avant garde music: contemporary classical/post-classic composition, free improvisation and avant jazz, electronic/ electroacoustic music, sound art, sound installations, radio art, sound poetry, etc. A few of these artists may also work within relatively mainstream forms, but they are included here because of their other work that is more challenging (example: Yoko Ono)

TODAYS DISCOVERY / SOUNDCLOUD SPOTLIGHT – Phantasm Nocturnes


INTERVIEW REBLOG – Phantasm Nocturnes (Betty Koster) interview

Phantasm Nocturnes has been on my Artist page for sometime and her music is on the Noise playlists. It’s pretty powerful music and so glad I can post this interview from Yeah I Know it Sucks

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Hello dear reader; good to see you here! I’m KN and on my way to the house of Betty Koster for an interview. In case you have been hiding away under a gravestone; Betty Koster is the music producer fairly known for her work under the Phantasm Nocturnes (and PN-lobit) moniker. Her music is pretty special and in general pretty damn spooky too!  I’ve always wanted to meet her, so recently I just asked if she would be up for an interview. She agreed and now I’m on my way to her home.. How exciting and glad you can come along, as I’m probably too excited to pull this one off all on my own.

Luckily it’s been a wonderful day weather wise, maybe she has a garden to sit and sunbathe for a bit.. We are close now.. A nice and posh looking neighborhood..

a nice looking neighborhood Betty Koster lives in a…

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…

ARTICLE REBLOG – Ritual, Noise, and the Cut-up: The Art of Tara Transitory

I first came across the artist Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation when I put together a season on African and Asian Electronic artists, so I have been looking forward to reading this article ( also recommend the series ). Just as an aside – I posted the article on the Feminatronic Facebook page and it has had a very positive response.

Sounding Out!

Sound and AffectMarginalized bodies produce marginalized sounds to communicate things that escape language. The queer body is the site of sounds that engage pleasure, repression, rage, isolation, always somehow outside of dominant language. Sound Studies tells us that we should trust our ears as much as our eyes, justifying our trust in sound, and of the resonating body. Affect Theory goes further, saying that all senses play into a body that processes input through levels of response, experience, and anticipation. Affect is the vibrational space that is both bodily memory and anticipation. So where do sound and affect meet in queer bodies? How do marginalized peoples use sound and the body to express liberation, objectification, joy, and struggle?

Our writers in Sound and Affect tackle these questions across a spectrum of the marginalized experience.  I opened the series by offering the concept of the tremble, a sonic form of affect that is…
