Gender, Education, Creativity in Digital Music and Sound Art
Georgina Born, Kyle Devine, Sally-Jane Norman and Mark Taylor
University of Oxford, University of Sussex, University of Manchester

This panel broadly examines issues of gender in relation to both higher education and creative practices in the fields of electronic and computer music and sound art. The enormous growth of music technology degree provision in British Higher Education since the mid 1990s has been accompanied by a clear demographic bifurcation between music technology and traditional music degrees. Our goal is to set these research findings into dialogue with panelists and discussants concerned with issues of gender in relation to creative processes in terms of technological design and use as well as performance, installation and compositional practices. The workshop will therefore offer a basis on which to reflect on questions of gender within the NIME community and beyond.

Panelists include, in addition to the organisers,
Freida Abtan, Goldsmiths, University of London
Holly Ingleton, City University London
Cathy Lane, CRiSAP, University of the Arts, London
John Richards, De Montfort University
Laetitia Sonami, sound artist
Marie Thompson, Newcastle University
Simon Waters, Queen’s University Belfast
