There are not many women working behind-the-scenes in the music industry doing things like production and engineering work. Electronic music, in particular, is male-dominated, even though the genre is starting to break into mainstream pop music.
At this year’s Moogfest, LP Giobbi and FEMMEHOUSE are hosting a discussion about gender representation in electronic music, aiming to answer the question: Why don’t women in music feel empowered to choose behind-the-scenes positions? They will break down the barriers to entry for women, how the genre can be more inclusive and highlight how women on the ground are working to change the industry.
