This is a community for women who are working within the area of art music to come together, discuss issues they feel are relevant to women in art music and post information about gigs, current cd's for sale etc.

I wish to bring women who are creating art music to the forefront and to show that there are a number of talented and highly creative women working in this medium. The term “art music” is a broad one, but my definition of it includes classical, electro-acoustic, experimental and noise genres. The reason I’m concentrating on this genre of music is firstly because I create art music myself, and secondly because this music has very few outlets for people to get their work heard. And so women creating art music are at an even greater disadvantage than our more popular counterparts. To this end I will be posting a different female sound artist each week to help spread awareness of our existence. I'll add each artist profile to the memories to make a database of females composing art music.
