As part of the biennial Performa goings on in NYC, some friends asked me if I'd do something for their 12 hour radio broadcast of feminist-inspired audio performances, going on right now, even as we speak/gaze. I came up with this piece, a comment on how informed the current musical landscape is by the contributions of feminist figureheads, and as tribute to some of my faves. The piece samples songs of some particular performers (Kate Bush, Karen Dalton) and leans heavily on the influence of others (Paulina Oliveros, Janice Giteck, Yoko Ono). It aired at about noon, but you should check the link above for more info on Performa, Broadside, the broadcast and to check out the show on an archive of East Village Radio. And also, the song by itself (less momentous) is below.
