About Feedback Monitor

Feedback Monitor is a bi-monthly webcast that covers emerging electronic and experimental music with the first half covering kinetic, rhythmic tracks, the second, more ambient-atmospheric, with a seasononing of field recordings. Midway through episodes, we divert into a retro segment with micro-profile of a track from the 1990's and prior. Exceptions to this structure are the occassional artist or band profile accompannied wirth interviews and extended discography. The music we cover tends to be off-the-beaten-path, from independent artists and labels who receive minimal support. Feedback Monitor exists to give coverage to the neglected and enthuse over the overlooked gems. There are already plenty of places that over-celebrate the celebrated.
