XLR female. Women in electronic music

Broadcast by Friederike Kenneweg


Musicians, composers, producers, programmers, DJs... Women occur in all fields of musical production. There are more and more women working with electronic sounds, beats, laptops and machines. 

On stages, in label programming, in clubs and festival line ups, they are still underrepresented. Also in history of electronic music, women pioneers often remain unmentioned.

In her broadcast, Friederike Kenneweg puts those women into focus and presents their aesthetic positions.

Dalia Grinkeviciute was born 1927 in Kaunas. Her father, a math teacher, belonged to the intellectuals of the young republic of Lithuania. In 1941 during the stalinistic occupation, the family was deported from Kaunas. Dalia, her mother and her brother were taken to the Lena river at the Arctic circle. Her notes about that period were found after her death. Now they are one of the most important documents of Lithuanian history.

Translator and editor Vytene Muschick will read from the manuscript which was released in 2014 for the first time in German.

On mermaids and the drowned

Reading by Friederike Kenneweg and Annika Scheffel

 The human body is made out of 80% of water. From the water came life. Under water, things sprout, germinates and rot. Both writers of the evening are impressed by the moist element: puddles, ponds, rivers - and especially the sea. Sands, sludge, slime. And what is covered by water. What disappeared under the floods and what was lost in there for ever.

"Alles. Dazwischen. Nichts." Everything. In Between. Nothing.

A broadcast about noise in contemporary music

Noise is a phenomenon of nature. And one of the primary matters of electronic music. 

We listen to it as an acoustic fullness or as a blank. It is always in between and fills the acoustic background. Noise is everything and nothing at the same time. And noise always effects our communication.

When we listen to it, we are confronted with the borders of our perception and cognition. 

In contemporary music, especially those composers work with noise who want to shake up their listeners and disappoint listening expectations. 

Friederike Kenneweg explores possibilities and meanings of noise.
