On September 28, 2013, women and girls from around the United States will come together for a free, day-long event on the Barnard College campus in New York City to discuss the state of women in music production, how to get involved in the technical side of the music industry, and the relationship between music production and commerce. The festival will feature live performances by artists including THEESatisfaction, Alluxe aka Laura Escudé (Electronic Creatives), and Genesis Be, industry panels, and instructional workshops geared to high school youth to encourage them to pursue studies in music production and technology.

Instructional Workshops

  • Music Production for Film & TV: Come learn the ways in which music and sound editing are used to enhance the moving image. Learn about the concept of syncing sound to images and the production technologies associated with the field.
  • Turntablism 101: DJs are the center of today’s music culture. From DJ Rheka to DJ Havana Brown, women are gaining an international following as masters of the mix. In this tutorial, festival participants will have a chance to observe the basics of scratching vinyl records and mixing 2-3 pre-produced songs together. Topics covered will include: turntable anatomy, basic scratch techniques, set composition and popular DJ software.
  • Music Production on Smart Phones: An Introduction to Music Production on Mobile Devices for Girls: Today’s youth are attached to their mobile devices. From the iPad to the BlackBerry, sophisticated mobile technologies enable users to create music anywhere and everywhere. The aim of this workshop is to expose young girls to the power of their mobile devices and the ever-changing landscape of music technologies. Some mobile applications that will be presented include: BeatMaker, Maschine and FourTrack.
  • Making the Connections: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math in Music Production: Producing music may seem divorced from standard school curriculum, but there are many concepts in music production that connect to academic subjects, and lots of schoolwork that can provide an excellent foundation for working in music technology. Learn how to make your schoolwork work for you in the studio and apply your passion for music in the classroom.
