Women in electronic music

December 19, 2008

What a find! Here is a video with brief pictures of various women who have worked in [classical] electronic music. There are a LOT of women missing, young and old, but hey, it’s a start, and an interesting document. The music is by DELIA DERBYSHIRE and is called “The Wizards Laboratory” (1972) — quite catchy I think, but you might want to be ready to adjust the volume if it doesn’t fit your ears quite right.

Thanks for the clip. Too bad Eliane Radigue’s name is mis-spelled.

And what about Laurie Anderson?? Elaine Barkin?

I should be linking to this video as well. Off to figure out HOW to embed YouTube in a Blogger blog.

Copy the code under “EMBED” and paste it in and see what happens. I use WordPress so I can’t help….

That works on Blogger too, and the posting has a hat tip to you. Thank you for finding this.
