Hello my friends,
I’m so very happy and proud to share the 10th episode of Something Like with you!
This episode is dedicated wholly to the voice, and particularly the female voice: to our breath, to our speech, and to our songs. Thank you to Luzie Meyer and her class at Weissensee Kunsthochschule for the fascinating seminar on situated feminism in sound I get to sit in on. I’m excited to put a couple of the musicians we’ve spoken about in another sonic context here. I also want to thank Kate Brown and Ben Marvin for asking me to contribute to their occasional mailer, S.W.I.M. (http://swimpubs.com/articles/the-borderlands), which includes a text and sound piece corresponding to this episode. Finally, I want to thank Elif Saydam, artist, roommate/domestic life partner and all around friend, who is responsible for the gorgeous cover image of this episode, as well as many joys in my life. Wow, friends, right?
- The music behind me is from Joanna Brouk’s 1981 “The Space Between”
