Interviews with Pioneering Women in Sound


I have embarked on a new project this past summer, a collaboration with Australian sound artist Majena Mafe on her burgeoning web project girrlsound archiving and calling attention to women working in the sonic arts. The particular piece I am starting with is an ongoing series of interviews beginning with female pioneers in the field of sound. I imagine later the interviews will branch out to other categories: sound sculptors, composers, improvisors, etc. but for the moment I am really enjoying conversing with these amazing and groundbreaking women. The basic format I am using is a standard set of 10 questions I ask each pioneer plus 2 individual questions specific to the individual artist’s practice.

You can see the first 2 interviews featuring Annea Lockwood and Pauline Oliveros up online.
