The figure is of Kore (Persephone), the goddess in charge of the Four seasons in Greek Mythology. The Wallace Cut allows the formerly singular image to be reflected in four sides.
For a friend who relies on FurAffinity for most of their income; that big old blue site that takes more vacation days than most people. I figured it doesn’t hurt to make a post for those who never thought to make a spreadsheet for their info.
I think the ‘World Music’ is a label that doesn’t fit anyone. I don’t feel very comfortable with that label. People have already an idea of what world music is. I may be completely wrong, but when I hear ‘world music’ that’s what I have in mind—music from some tribes anywhere in the world or very small groups of people doing their thing. That’s what I understand by ‘world music.’ And I don’t think it’s a good label for anyone, because sounds that are made with similar instruments in different parts of the world sound totally different. It’s like the label of ‘folk.’ Sometimes I get labeled as a folk musician because I’m playing with an acoustic guitar. If I played exactly the same music with an electric guitar, then there would be no room for me in folk. Sometimes it’s necessary to label music in order to help people to know what it is. But honestly, I think that confuses them rather than help them to know what’s about. I’m talking about everyone, not only what I do.
Juana Molina on music genres (interviewed by Araceli Cruz for The Village Voice, 2008)
Juana and genres… that is a complicated theme. What kind of music does she play? As she said, World music can’t fit anyone, because it’s so vague and makes artists look like exotic species from Narnia. Let’s not even talk about Latin as a genre – as a geographical reference it’s of course acceptable. But what about Folk? That seems to fit her sometimes, especially if we consider Argentine folkloric music. I actually think that when she complains about being tagged as electro-folk, is against the idea of folk as “anything that involves an acoustic guitar”, but she sometimes recognizes the folklore – “Zamba corta” is the clearest example, but notice also all the nature that her music encloses.
But what happens now that she plays electric guitar? Does the folklore still fit her? Does it go beyond the instruments? Sometimes I can feel the folklore in Wed21, but to say the truth, I don’t know if it’s really there or if it’s just my ignorance.(via oneweekoneband)
