Jessica Aszodi ~ Prayer for Nil

The extremes of an instrument such as the voice have been relatively less explored than those of most others that do not potentially involve, well, ruining a part of the self and the body. Thankfully, experimentalists such as Jessica Aszodi

Various Artists ~ Monika Werkstatt

One persistent, hydra-headed problem of warped gender perception is as deep as the internalization of the bias that perpetuates it. The media underrepresentation of women normalizes pre-existing prejudice.  Half of the population is visible in disproportionately smaller measure, bolstering the
