THE 7 DEADLY SINS COLLECTIVE RELEASE
Submitted tracks will be included in "The 7 Deadly Sins - collective release" to celebrate 7 years of our activity.
Electronicgirls celebrates its 7 year anniversary by releasing a special collective album and announces a call for works addressed to electronic and electroacoustic musicians/composers.
We are looking for unreleased tracks (Maximum length: 5 minutes) to be included in a collective release in free download from January 9th 2017.
Each submitted track must be unreleased and especially recorded for this call: we ask for original works inspired by the theme of the 7 Deadly Sins.
This call is aimed to create a sound-dictionary whereby sound compositions can describe mental images revealing the relationships between words-imaginary-history and sonic productions. Which ways and methods can be chosen to describe a particular attitude or behavior? :=0
The main inspiration must be that of the 7 deadly sins: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Hubris.
Deadline to submit your track: 25 december
Send to us:
- Your Track (Mp3 Format)
- Title of your Track
- A short text describing briefly your choice & methods (Max. 250 words)
- A short bio of you (Max 250 words)
"Particles, bodies and each aspect of our existence are the expression of information processed by our brain or mind to obtain an interpretation of the physical world. But the physical organs of the brain may be only the circuitry that makes the mind humanly perceptible. In that case, a form of consciousness may remain. We just don't have the apparatus to change the electromagnetic radiation into mechanical sound waves. The brain does for the mind what the radio does for the music". (Gerald L. Schroeder).
"Increase" is the first synthesis of an exploration, it's a study joined by thoughts, hypothesis, visions, passions immersed in a sci-fi world surrounded by quantum physics and literature. The "sonic materials" become concrete thanks to frequencies, morphed memory, transformations and the increase of resonances. The title-track Tricorder come from a medical device used in Star Trek; it's a device that scans the body frequencies to understand illness and therapies. In this very moment a well-known society, a brand leader in the market of the electronics and microprocessors, is trying to realize this device after a technological contest that started few years ago. I thought about S. Hawking presenting with his own voice this new beautiful device capturing our cellular structure...
"My music seeks for radio waves in their endless transformation into memory, words and the body theatricality". (Patrizia Mattioli).

Lusque - fusque
Artistic performance group that works with the Research Group of Sound Creation and the Research Group of Gender and Music, both based at UFRGS. The group creates music from different aspects of sound. The Marrow image brings the relation between material and immaterial, physical and psychic, what stands within or behind the physical structure, an image of the operating concept per se. The group’s productions are artistic and theoretical works which discuss or make use of overlapping and crossing boundaries of disciplinary fields.
Camilla Martini, video maker and documentarist, is following our dive into the electronics, reporting our shows and works. Here you can find a teaser shot on January 9th 2016 at S.a.L.E. Docks, Venice; our Electronic Orchestra is performing the 3rd movement of "Silver River", Pleiadum Constellatio, with the dance interpretation of Marianna Andrigo. Stay tuned, more material to come!
The Electronic Orchestra was made by: Chironomia, LECRI, Belinda Frank, Alessandra Trevisan, Nico De Giosa, Patrizia Mattioli, Aldo Aliprandi, Alberto Favretto, Bertrand Rossa, BEA, Johann Merrich.
Electronicgirls has been happy to be part of Women in Sound Women on Sound Forum - Educating Girls in Sound at Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts on 22nd April 2016.
Electronicgirls took part in the initiatives with a sound artwork, Collage #2.
Collage#2 is a piece of music conceived by Johann Merrich and composed with the collage technique applied to the electronic sounds. It summarizes the activity of Electronicgirls. Twelve different tracks - collected in various Electronicgirls' releases - have been selected and assembled, thus creating a new whole. Now unite in one flow, the sounds trace a path of our collaborations and display disparate acoustic textures and contrasting attitudes toward electronic sounds.
Collage#2 has been made with the music of: Alessandra Trevisan, B.E.A., Chironomia, Gravida, IOIOI, Isabel Nogueira, Kalalunatic, Neutica, Patrizia Mattioli, Patrizia Oliva, Tiziana Lo Conte, Xxena.
Collage#2 is the second piece of a series started in 2010 and it has been created especially for WISWOS 2016.
Ideation/composition: Johann Merrich
Music: Alessandra Trevisan, B.E.A., Chironomia, Gravida, IOIOI, Isabel Nogueira, Kalalunatic, Neutica, Patrizia Mattioli, Patrizia Oliva, Tiziana Lo Conte, Xxena.
