EQLovesFestival ONLINE2020 – SAMMANFATTNING

Spread the love

Website: www.eqlovesfestival.com

För fjärde året i rad anordnades EQLovesFestival den 25:e och 26:e september. År 2020 fick vi verkligen tänka om, och festivalen skapades så vis i ett nytt online format på grund av den rådande pandemin. Fokus låg fortfarande på jämställdhet inom musikproduktion och under årets festival valde vi att lyfta och fördjupa oss i musikskapandet och musikproducentens personliga processer.

I år lyfte vi de göteborgsbaserade artist-producenterna: Sea Lion, MANX och Vanessa Liftig som även blev intervjuade av musikjournalisten, fd. radioprataren och författaren Hanna Jedvik. Vi intervjuade även producenterna: Erin Tonkon(NYC), Gloria Kaba(NYC), Dajana Indy(STHLM) och musikstuderande producenten och musikjuristen Sara Idani (GBG/UMEÅ) samt Anya Trybala (AUS). Vi lyfte även våra samarbetsparter från tidigare årets festival som var: Beats by Girlz (NYC) samt Synth Babes (Malmö)

Utöver detta fick medlemmar ur vårt eget nätverk ta mer plats än tidigare år och berätta om sitt musikskapande. Vi berättade också om hur vi arbetat fram en ny logotyp tillsammans med QueensLab i Göteborg.

Nedan följer vår sammanfattning av projektet.

Syfte och Mål:

EQLovesFestival är en inspirationsfestival för att skapa skillnad för yrkesutövande musikproducenter, ljudtekniker och låtskrivare som inte tillhör normen. Festivalen är återkommande och har gått av stapeln årligen i Göteborg sedan 2017. Arbetet kring festivalen har hittills lett till många nya nätverk och byggt broar mellan olika systerorganisationer och samarbetspartners.

Festivalens huvudsakliga syfte handlar om att på ett inspirerande vis öka medvetenhet, lyfta förebilder och skapa nätverk mellan producenter, musikskapare och musikorganisationer för att bygga en jämställd framtid. Modellen är unik på så vis att dess huvudsakliga fokus ligger på musikproduktion/musikskapande och inte enbart på artisteri.

Målet med festivalen är att lyfta och belysa kvinnliga förebilder inom musikproduktion och göra det på ett inspirerande sätt, genom liveintervjuer på scen där musik- och kulturjournalister modererar, detta varvas med musikinslag av artister/producenter. Vårt fokus för festivalen är att skapa inspirationsseminarier, upplevelsekonserter/liveproduktion, samt nätverksträffar för aktiva inom branschen.

EQLovesMusic arbetar mot tre huvudsakliga mål:

1) Att vara en levande förening för musikproducenters möjlighet till nätverkande/ samverkan, utveckling och stöttning.

2) Ett årligt arrangerande av EQLovesFestival för att sätta jämställdhetsfrågan på agendan, samtidigt som vi vill bredda bilden av en musikproducent genom att lyfta och dela med oss av nya aktörer som faller utanför normen.

3) Vi har som syfte att samverka och skapa länkar mellan olika organisationer runt om i Sverige och övriga världen som arbetar mot samma mål. Som förening har vi regelbundna nätverksträffar online och arrangerar då och då workshops där vi utvecklas tillsammans.

Medlemsantal 2020 är 45 st.

För att skapa mer intresse för våran organisation online gjordes även ett beslut om att uppdatera organisationens logotyp för att ytterligare lyfta föreningens och festivalens syfte. Samarbetet gjordes med Pia Olsson på QueensLab, den nya logotypens mål var att tydligare förmedla att vårt arbete står för jämställdhet inom musikproduktion.

Documentary premiere “Women in Music Production” by Rebecka W. Fagerberg.

The Documentary – “Women in Music Production” highlights the challenges within the music industry today. The main focus is production and the people behind the music –

professional engineers and producers who want to share their story and experiences. To aspire to a career within creative technology is common, however, somewhere along the way, people are phased out in a way that reinforces gender stereotypes. The industry has been like this for years, yet far from everyone is aware that it is something that still happens every day, all around the world. To inspire a change, music creators from both Sweden and the United States share their goals and achievements, and discuss how to create a sustainable future that includes everyone.

Medverkande samt tillhörande biografier:

Maria Nyström refererades för några år sedan till som ”sveriges okrönta loopdrottning” under namnet The Naima Train.

2019 startade hon om och släppte sin debut-EP “Shell” under det nya epitetet MANX.

En skiva med ett tydligt tema kopplat till havet som togs emot med otroligt mycket kärlek av lyssnare och press.

Jonathan Eklund på podcasten Singelfesten uppmanade sina lyssnare att varsamt lyssna sönder låten “Im giving u art” och Elin Strömberg i P3 kallade den beroendeframkallande.

MANX är byggd av drömmen och tanken om full konstnärlig frihet. En dröm som blir till världar där varje intro är en dörr till något nytt och oväntat. Maria använder sig av allt hon samlat på sig under åren; heta darbukas samsas med bl a jazzinslag i en elektronisk och lo-fi ljudbild.

Ljuden och samplingarna skapar en känsla av en nostalgi du inte riktigt kan sätta fingret på.

Det är musik med många passager som får lyssnaren att både koppla av och vara på tårna samtidigt.

Sea Lion är singer/songwritern Linn Österbergs musikaliska alias som är känd för att producera melankoliska och atmosfäriska låtar och för sina intima live-spelningar. Efter en uppväxt nära naturen på västkusten valde Linn vid nitton års ålder att flytta till Melbourne i Australien för att se något annorlunda och bo i en större stad. Det var där hon började göra sina första spelningar och skriva den musik som sedan skulle bli de första inspelningarna.

I tidig tjugo-årsålder flyttade Linn tillbaka till Sverige och bosatte sig i Göteborg där hon satte ihop en egen studio och började intressera sig för produktion. Hon spelade in ett antal låtar och la ut online som resulterade i att hon blev kontaktad av det Brittiska indie-bolaget Turnstile som

bland annat släppt artister som Perfume Genius, Girls och Cate le Bon. De ville ge ut Linns debutskiva och 2015 släpptes egenproducerade ‘Desolate Stars’. Under de kommande åren följde turnéer runt Europa och i USA. Två år senare kände Linn att om hon skulle orka och vilja hålla på med musik så behövde hon ändra om hur hon jobbade med det.

År 2017 lämnade hon skivbolaget för att börja ge ut sina egna skivor och fokusera på inspelningar istället för turné. Hon gjorde enstaka spelningar i Skandinavien medan hon spelade och gav ut de två akustiska albumen ‘Moonlight Here’ (2018) och ‘Pass This Way’ (2019).

Under vintern 2020 är Linn aktuell med nya skivan ‘I Heard there’s Music on the Town’. Första singeln ‘Some Kind of Angel’ finns ute att lyssna på nu: https://open.spotify.com/track/1clzUFU9Bjakdh83AeeZXa?

Hanna Jedvik är kulturjournalist och författare. Genom åren har hon jobbat på bland annat Sveriges television, Sveriges Radio och Göteborgsposten. Hon bor i Göteborg och tidigare i höst kom hennes senaste ungdomsroman “På andra sidan bron”.

Vanessa is a singer/composer/arranger/producer and lyrical writer from Gothenburg SWE. She has appeared in various constellations and in different contexts over the years. Her musical history and work varies over a broad field of genres, from solid roots in jazz to classical to electro to hip hop to soul and singer/songwriter.

Currently Vanessa finished producing jazz vocalist Alexander Lövmarks soloalbum “Perfect Storm” released in Januari 2018. In may of 2018 she released a new soloalbum called “Göteborgs Pyramider”. website: http://www.vanessaliftig.com/

Zukie is a soulfull Neosoul singer while she writes heartbroken countrysongs and producing funky dance beats. She is a reflection of a multiartist with a passion for playing live and creating a feeling of joy and celebration of life.

Shadi G is a Swedish songwriter, producer and singer whose soulful voice and unique RnB/Soul sound is striking the attention of some of Swedens biggest music magazines. Being schooled in classical music from a young age, growing up with music all from jazz, RnB, soul, hip hop to Persian music, where she has her roots, Shadi is crossing borders with her own soulful sound, both in style and language. Straight after high school she went off to London to learn music production and in 2016 she released her debut single “Lost”, which got her on to some of Sweden’s biggest playlists. In 2017 she started her own record label, Goldamin Records, from which the second single “Where We Go”, was released. From the label followed her first EP “No Fear” and singles “Disconnection” and “Mind”. A new artist but already carving out a clear space in her field, and as stated by Soundlooks Magazine – “Discussions are quietly surfacing aboutwhether Shadi G may become an important face of contemporary R&B”.

Adée är en artist med lång resume som bara under 2019 fick öppna för superstjärnan Koffee, var huvudakt på Veckans Affärers gala för kvinnliga företagare på Grand Hotel, var inbjuden att spela på i Kenya och släppte sitt andra album där hon samarbetat med flera up and coming artister från England som Vital, Call Me Unique and Thomas Seminar Ford. Hon har tidigare bla. spelat på SXSW, Midem och Mondo NY, gjort anthem låten till en av världens största jämställdhets konferenser Nordiskt Forum och spelat flera gånger för kungafamiljen och mer.

The Gothenburg-based Singer/Songwriter, Producer and Arist Maria Bohm has loved singing and playing the piano ever since she was alittle toddler. Searching for new ways to play instruments and exploring sounds has been her leader ever since.

Maria’s etherial style will haunt you, the subversive comments she makes with her music and lyrics may haunt you even more. Flirting with the genre where Kate Bush and Tori Amos have left their mark, but never copying, her artistry is unique and hard to forget. A serious, but at the same time, dreamy and captivating art pop soundscape.

She has studied several music educations in both Sweden and in England, including music production which has been a favourite topic of hers. The core of her inspiration has most often been revolving round equality, human and animal rights, which is also why she single handedly produced an album as an introduction to her artist career, completely made by women, from the instruments, to the layout and photos and even the printing.She has six releases under her belt, the most recent one being the EP ”Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires” responding to, among other things, sexism, racism, the petty men in power and the

wrecking of the environment. The earth shaking video ”Me Too” has her filming her own panic attack due to PTSD, as women in the intro say the words out loud that they have only used as hashtags before.

Dajana — a Singer-Songwriter and Music Producer from Sweden. She’s half Nigerian and Serbian, born in former Yugoslavia in 1983 but adopted to Sweden at the age of three. Dajana Lööf was a promising athlete during her teen years. But she also grew a passion for music, and pursued that career instead.

Dajana was one of the participants in the Swedish Fame Factory 2003, and after that, she had a career as TV-host in different shows, entered Eurovision 2012 as a songwriter and toured around singing and rapping behind the Swedish rapper Cleo.

Eventually, Dajana left the spotlight for a while, as she was struggling with mental health issues. She was diagnosed with ADHD and ended up using weed to get by. A combination of addiction to drugs and alcohol and being a perfectionist, she composed a lot of music that never was released.

On the 15th of August 2019, Dajana entered a twelve-step program. She is now sober and ready to make music again. And you can follow her creative journey on her official website dedicated to her youtube channel and her music-production, and above all, her fans.

An intense sound sculptor using Ableton Live as her prime instrument, Anya Trybala AKA Ninoosh has been steadily carving out her unique musical style and production prowess. With Polish roots, and hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Ninoosh has finally found solid contentment and thriving creativity in her new home of Malmö, Sweden.

Ninoosh absorbs and records the intricate sounds of nature, contrasted with those of harsh industry, layering her tracks with bursts of synths, vocals and muted brass. Her live show is equally unique, offering of “music that shifts from intense IDM through to experimental electronic pop music” (hymn.se) and 2018 saw her move bodies at Extreme Chill Festival in Iceland, play Eter Festival in Sweden and support the luminous Zola Jesus.

Through her frustration at the lack of role models in electronic music, Anya founded Synth Babes in 2015 as a platform for emerging women and non-binary electronic music artists. She has since moved back to Melbourne and through these COVID-19 times has been working on a new album Pause Magic as a follow-up to her album Floodgates set for release in 2021.

Rauður is the stage name of Icelandic musician and producer Auður Viðarsdóttir. Formerly a keyboardist and singer of Nóra, a band active in Iceland’s music scene a few years back, she has now emerged as a solo artist. Through the making of her debut album ‘Semilunar’, she developed her unique sound, merging electronic and acoustic elements into an ethereal soundscape. Her voice weaves together with eccentric beats and captivating melodies that take us through highs and lows, while her accompanying lyrics tend to reverberate with different types of disasters – sometimes pretty, sometimes crude – always fascinating.

On stage, rauður usually performs on her own, inviting us into her enticing world of synthesisers, beats and samples – safely guided by her beguiling, almost angelic, voice. She is a versatile performer, easily shifting between electronic and acoustic moods, while keeping the audience captivated and engaged.

Although a solo artist and performer, she thrives best in collaboration. She is a part of the international collective and label Synth Babes, including artist such as Ninoosh (Australia) and Loljud (Sweden). She is also involved in a vast network of ‘girls rock camps’ and has initiated international music projects and collaborations. In Iceland, she works together with her brothers from the duo Andy Svarthol.

Loljud, who has been compared to artists like The Knife, Björk and Sia, is recognizable because of her distinct omni-artistic and unpredictable

approach to electronic music. As a collector of sounds she sieves the world through a hoop-net. With it she catches sounds like water drops, white noise and mobile phone alarms. The Swedish word for noise is “oljud”, and you can literally just pick that word out of her stage name. And the noise is not just unexpected elements of the production, it forms conceptual building blocks ushering the storytelling ever forward.

Spring 2020 saw the release of her debut album The Phases, a triptych divided into three EP:s, by the label Synth Babes. The Pre Phase was released in November 2018, the Acute Phase in December 2019 and the final piece, The Recovery Phase, was released march 27th 2020, together with the whole album available exclusively on vinyl.

Collaborating with the performance collective Absurdum Temporary Art, Loljud performed the sold out, captivating concert I’m Out Of Order Until Further Notice, at Inkonst in Malmö. 16 speakers, sub woofers, room acoustics, visual imagery and choreography mesmerized the audience. The performance used the album The Phases as a manuscript and took form during a residency with Inter Arts Center in Malmö. At the Inter Arts Center Loljud experimented with ambisonics – a fully spherical surround sound that sonically travels all levels, including overhead and underneath the listener.

Lotta Fahlén (1990) is an artist and producer based in Malmö. In addition to her solo project Loljud she composes for other artists, and stage art shows. She’s been a live musician for Maxida Märak, toured Japan, and has opened for among others Titiyo, Jenny Vhal and U.S. Girls. As a founder behind the feminist network Synth Babes, as well as a coach at hand for Vem Kan Bli Producent Malmö, she is constantly comitted to inspiring and educating women and trans people in music production, to create more representation in the business.

With her lyrics and short novels about millenials and toxic men, Bara Karin has been described as a singing version of Lena Dunham. Bara Karin iscurrently working on her next album and music video, this time with a feverish sound telling stories about global warming and mental illness.Just like in her previous album, “I changed my voice for you”, Bara Karin experiments with her voice, as less is not always more. Together with synths and percussion, the sound can be described as space pop. Coming up next is a live streaming concert in September, and in December she’ll perform at LOUD Fest in Texas.

SVENSSONJANSSON is an electro indie duo based in South of Sweden, consisting of Sanna Svensson and Tulsa Jansson. The lyrics are about the worries and hope involved in living ones life and living it together with others. The single “Can’t Rewind” is the first single released. It is part of the EP “CODE” released 26 of June 2020. “CODE” is the first EP in the larger project of three. The two following EPs “DEEPEN” and “DENSE” are to be released end 2020 and 2021. The trilogy spells (or rather misspells) Codependence. Tulsa is a member on the board of Popkollo Malmö and has 2019/2020 taken the one year separatistic training Vem Kan Bli Producent in Stockholm. The duo is mixing and producing themselves. The single Can’t Rewind got great reviews and made PSL top 20 list.

Hymn.se writes: Bakom syntpopduon SVENSSONJANSSON hittar vi Sanna Svensson och Tulsa Jansson. I slutet av juni släpps debut-EP:n och singeln ”Can’t Rewind” och dess åttiotalsdoftande diy-produktion är ett smakprov som frestar.

Keep your ears open for this voice. Elsa Esmeralda Hedberg is known at the London underground scene for her vocal collaborations with legendary club music names. She has recently made her debut as a solo artist and producer. As a newly signed songwriting talent at Playground Music, she has a lot of colorful electronic music in the pipeline.

With the solo project Elsiope, Elsa combines her influences from soul, IDM, indie pop and industrial techno to create a new genre she calls Singer-Songwriter-Futurism. Elsiope’s lo-fi beats and synth-based landscapes merge with picturesque lyrics and airy singing – on a playful border between the gloomy and the hopeful.

She joins EQ Loves Music with the premiere of the song Two Fingers in her bedroom together with her Omnichord.

London-based indie electronica musician DANI .ELLA (@daniellalinan) creates an atmospheric, dreamy sphere incorporating influence from alternative, electronic, and indie.

Presenting a new tack in collaboration with the Swiss French Korean singer-songwriter Jinju Uncia(@jinju.uncia). An artist traveling between genres such as alternative hip-hop, cross-cultural music, experimental pop.

DANI .ELLA’s production and Jinju Uncia’s poetry came together and those pieces formed the song MOSAIC. A song about past relationships, still constituting our present. Stories that are stored in our brain’s desks. If you look at the world, you’ll see millions of mosaics flying around, searching for new stories to be built.

Audio embellished with the visual by the Swiss illustrator Wolfgang Wiler (@der_heisse_wolfgang) which elevates MOSAICs perspective.

dolltr!ck is the artist project of Singapore-born electronic musician Claire Marie Lim, who entered the scene as a DJ, remixer, and live experience designer for Grammy-nominated and Billboard-charting artists.

Known for her dynamic live electronic sets with influences from Disclosure, TOKiMONSTA, and Madeon, dolltr!ck’s palette of dreamy synths, punchy drum machines, and crystal-clear vocals lets her seamlessly meld electronica, pop, future bass, and dance music. Her music and arts advocacy endeavors have been hailed as “shattering the glass ceiling of electronic music”, with recognition from industry giants like iHeartRadio, Spotify, and the Recording Academy (GRAMMYs).
