The third of three special sessions for this month’s show is a first listen to the new release from the new album by The Nomadic Female DJ Troupe. Tune into NTS from 1am to 3am on 28th March, or check the archives here. You can also listen to and buy the new NFDJT tape from Lumen Lake here.
The Nomadic Female DJ Troupe are Francine Perry, Lisa Busby and Ruthie Woodward, who converge as a collective through the shared use of found sonic materials within their work.
Initially formed as a live ensemble in 2015, they explored ‘roaming’ outdoor performances, working site-responsively and in an improvised way. They’ve popped up at festivals and gigs with live mixes, performing off stage and often without mains electricity, also led workshops and undertaken other interventions/actions including aerobics and karaoke.
The group’s unique methodology blurs the lines between experimental live improvisation and more traditional mixing practices; using live sung voices in the mix; investigating plurivocal and collectivized structures inspired by feminist activist histories.
