WOMAN WAS THE WORD | A Mix
Woman Was the Word is a very cool multi-media project put together at Absent Fever, a free digital-release label started by Eloise of verb/re/verb and Tyler of Flashlight Tag. It’s meant to shed light on the fact that women’s roles in music could be much better than they are. Absent Fever represent a few bands written about here at Their Bated Breath, including Galapagos, Wonder Bear and KYNAN. This particular project started with three female bloggers writing pieces, stories or poetry — which would get passed on to three female musicians who were to use the writing as inspiration for a new track. Elizabeth Rose created “Throw Me To the Stars”, Rachel Levy wrote “Pierced” and Yohuna and Adelyn Rose made “All the Slow Songs (Waiting)”. But it didn’t end there. All three tracks were sent to videographer Heather Daniels, who pieced the music together into video format.
