To inspire and empower the next generation of women in audio.
Our mission is to create a supportive community for women in audio and music production, providing the tools, knowledge, and support to further their careers.
Is SoundGirls.Org for women only?
No, SoundGirls.Org is for anyone who has a desire and drive to succeed in professional audio. The ratio of women to men members is approximately 65% women and 35% men.
Why does SoundGirls.Org exist?
SoundGirls.Org exists to provide a support network for women working in the professional audio industry and to assist those with a drive to be successful in audio. Women make up only 5% of the professional workforce in audio and music production. This profession thrives on word of mouth and networking. SoundGirls.Org gives women working in the industry an opportunity to meet and network with other industry professionals, creating a strong support network.
FAIR_PLAY is a network designed to promote the visibility to the practices of women, cis, trans and sociocultural minorities ignored by the mainstream visibility systems in the fields of sound art, experimental and alternative music and related arts.
The aim is to set up spaces for creation and fair representation through organising events, workshops and mentoring schemes, relaying calls for projects, and sharing tools for boosting visibility and the dissemination of information.

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, one of the sound effects units of the BBC, was created in 1958 to produce effects and new music for radio, and was closed in March 1998. Daphne Oram was a true pioneer of electronic music and this great gallery of photographs gives some great insight into the work being done at BBC.
