Today on International Women’s Day, the compilation ‘Music, Awareness & Solidarity w/ Rojava Revolution’ is out on Bandcamp. It contains 12 fantastic tracks by various female:pressure members including my song Noise Machine that I remixed myself for the occasion.
The proceeds will go directly to the women of Rojava to build a women’s village on location called The Village Project.
Have a listen and please consider buying it for the good cause.
female:pressure, a network for women in electronic music that I’m part of, has launched an awareness and solidarity campaign for the cantons of Rojava (located in northern Syria), where women participate on all levels of decision making and building a new society from scratch, with built-in social, racial and ethnic justice, religious freedom, ecological principles and equality between the sexes.
With a series of music, media and sound art to listen, dance and fight to, we would like to send our love and strength to these women and spread a positive message in support of their efforts. I’ve contributed with a remix of one of my own songs.
Also check out the other submissions. And if you’re a musician/producer yourself, why not get involved and contribute as well?
My song Patchwork has been played in a radio show as part of Cynetart, the international festival for computer based art at the Festspielhaus Hellerau in Dresden, Germany. You can listen to the whole show with plenty of great electronic music below.
Recently I was interviewed by WaveDNA about my music and the way I produce music. I also show how I use their software Liquid Rhythm to speed up my workflow for beats on my new and unfinished song ‘Tipping Point’. Here’s a snippet of its last chorus if you’d like a sneak peek…
Recently I was invited as a guest on the radio show Female Frequencies on Reboot.fm. It was a lot of fun and I played my latest song ‘Live & Learn’ as well some great tunes from other artists. If you missed the radio show or just want to listen again, here it is (alas somewhat distorted sounding).
Tomorrow (Saturday, May 24) at 7 pm (CET) I’ll be a guest on the radio show Female Frequencies on Reboot.fm. Apart from playing a few artists I love, I’ll be premiering my newest song ‘Live & Learn’. I just finished it last week. I hope you can tune in.
Tomorrow, on International Women’s Day, I’ll be playing an electronic live jam together with Donna Maya and Aschka. It all takes place at ://aboutblank in Berlin Friedrichshain as part of the Reflecting Perspectives Festival. Plenty of other great acts are gonna play as well: DJ Marcelle/Another Nice Mess, Kat Kat Tat, Lotic, Rona Geffen, Sick Girls, Stellar OM Source and Vinilette.
I hope you’ll come if you’re in Berlin. We’re on at 10 pm and I’m already really excited about it.
I’ll be using the holidays to get started with music again. That’s my Christmas present to myself. 7 days of music making. A great way to end a year. And a promise for the next: 20 hours a week for music.
It took quite a while to move the domain, but here it is… my redesigned website, now fully responsive for your viewing pleasure even on mobile devices. Try it out! Pretty good, isn’t it? I hope you like the new design I came up with as much as I do.
While the summer slump is in full force with major heatwaves washing over us, here’s a little instrumental I recently made. It’s called “Epicycle” and is probably better suited for nighttime listening than on a hot summer day. What do you think?
