Series: City Summer Sounds Music Festival

Technology is now central to many music-making practices across all sectors. Yet, men greatly outnumber women in the field of music technology, and because it is vertically separated by gender, men also occupy most of the positions of authority. Higher education courses featuring music technology are also dominated by men and gender segregation in ‘technical’ courses at high-school level is widespread and pervasive. What can be done to address gender balance and gender bias within music technology? What kinds of radical interventions and new ways of thinking about the ways we interact with and teach music technology might make a difference?
