Launch of the new website HER NOISE
Her Noise Archive is a resource of collected materials investigating music and sound histories in relation to gender, bringing together a wide network of women artists who use sound as a medium.
Whilst Her Noise exists as a physical archive, key elements of the original project, including video interviews with a number of artists and musicians, are available on this site, as well as documentation of more recent events and responses including 'Her Noise: `feminisms and the Sonic' at Tate Modern and 'Sound:Gender:Feminism:Activism' at LCC earlier in 2012.
The site will also see a series of guest ‘curations’ over the course of the next few years, whereby people have been asked to make selections from and for the archive, in an effort to keep the archive alive.
The first curations that are available on the site are from:
Ain Bailey - sound artist
Nina Power - philosopher, writer and broadcaster
Tara Rodgers - musician, composer and feminist technology scholar
This is a wonderful resource and inspiration for women working in sound/noise!!!!
