Artist innovation & Next Gen Music tech

13:45 – 14:25 · Friday 14th September 2018

From Daphne Oram and Delia Derbyshire’s contribution to BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop to Imogen Heap’s trailblazing work on blockchain and mycelia, pioneering women have shaped major developments in music technology. This is in spite of the low representation of women in music, sound engineering and production. 

Will the next generation of music and tech pioneers include more women? or do we need to actively encourage more female artists and innovators to be part of music’s future transformation?
