In the words of the Her Noise Overview:
Her Noise was initiated by Lina Džuverović and Anne Hilde Neset in 2001 with an ambition to investigate music and sound histories in relation to gender, and to create a lasting resource in this area through building up an archive… the initial desire of Her Noise, to ‘create a lasting resource’, that also operates as a starting point for new investigations. This blog is part of this project to invoke a living archive: a series of guest curators, each from different areas within the worlds of sound-based works and experimental music, will be invited to contribute to the blog. Guest curators will turn the dial to artifacts in the archive that have resonated with them and offer personal directions for a future listening-out for people who speak up about gender and talk back with sound.
Unfortunately, I have had to close the Feminatronic Tumblr site, due to some people using it to promote sexually explicit images / sites or followers who blatantly were promoting themselves in a sexually explicit way.
Nuff said : (
Feminatronic is not a platform for porn.
It is a serious site for promoting the electronic music creativity of women.
I am sorry to lose the real followers of Feminatronic Tumblr and hope that you will continue visit the Website, Facebook or Twitter.
Thank you for your continued support of Feminatronic.
I have often wondered…
WHAT IS SOUND ART?
As part of the Feminatronic season on Sound Art, I am focussing on the women who have been and are, at the forefront of this highly eclectic and diverse art form.
