Eris Drew presents OUT OF THE STUDIO Part II: Pioneering Women and Live Electronic Music Performance
Women pioneered electronic music in the 20th century and continue to drive its progress. This workshop will dispel the myth that women are newcomers to electronic music by investigating the lives of several key figures in the development of this music. In doing so, we shall explore the ways in which marginalized voices employed a powerful new medium of expression to radically change the role of the composer and performer.
The session will include a presentation showcasing the work of Pauline Oliveros, Cynthia Webster, Suzanne Ciani, Wendy Carlos, Eilane Radique, Joan LaBarbara, Laurie Spiegel, and others. Eris will demonstrate a live electronic music set-up using her hardware synth rig.
Dancing and live music to follow at NEON FALLS.
