On Monday, May 13th @ 8:00AM, DJ Massari airs his recent MUTEK SF interview with Los Angeles based vocalist and field recordist, Megan Mitchell aka Cruel Diagonals. Together, they discuss Mitchell’s musical theater beginnings, her early influences, and the positives/negatives of field recordings.
A jazz and classically trained vocalist, Mitchell performs and creates in numerous capacities. Some of her current endeavors include acting as proprietor of the left-of-field music index for women/trans/non-binary composers, Many Many Women, and researching, visiting and documenting places of abandoned industry around the Pacific Northwest with her field recorder and camera in tow.
Cruel Diagonals is an outlet for destructive sample processing, vocal exploration, and a palette for inter-media contemplations and applications.
