Alma Laprida is an Argentinian artist specialising in Electroacoustic, experimental and field recordings.
I know very little about this artist except what is written on her Facebook page –
As you may know, I try to spotlight the SoundCloud pages of artists. Many but not all, 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. I am also posting tracks from the artist on Twitter and Facebook throughout the week as an Introducing strand.
This weeks’ artist is Buffys I know very little about her except the Soundcloud page description is Budding Composer. I like the eclecticism and hope she will continue to write and record in the future.
Feminatronic has been putting together playlists for some time on different platforms. At first, I used the 8Track format but with the recent changes on that platform, I found that I couldn’t continue to put together the eclectic and wideranging playlists any more. Unfortunately, I had to close that account.
Over the past weeks I have been replicating and creating new playlists directly on Soundcloud. I post these each Monday on Twitter and Facebook, where they are pinned for the week. Here is this weeks playlist inspired by a message I received from the artist Alma Laprida, who provided me with a great list of South American electronic musicians. There is a rich heritage of electronic music creation in that part of the world and this is the first part of my exploration. More to come soon.
Due to technical stupidness ( probably on my behalf) Here is the show –
Jessica Tucker (1989, USA), aka FETTER, is an Amsterdam-based multimedia artist, musician, and producer. With her intimate and layered vocal/electronic music, together with her surreal and playfully strange animation videos and poetry, Tucker’s work expresses a kind of optimistic melancholy. In her recent installation work she deals with themes such as narcissism, insecurity, and the concept of ‘maintaining potential.’ In the past Tucker has also explored through sound, video, installation, and performance, topics such as the paradoxical simultaneity of presence and absence in distanced forms of self-expression, the vulnerability and power of the voice, and the human tendency to conceptualize ‘self’ in terms of abstract spatial relations.
