d/b: “Characteristic for the craft of early electronic (female) composers was their passion for experimenting beyond limits of classical music: they scored films and stage plays, worked with pop musicians under a pseudonym, and developed music software for rock and pop music. Designated target of the event will be, to make the oeuvre of female pioneers accessible to general public. At the same time, historical connecting lines to female composers of contemporary music and electronic performances should become visible and tangible to the audience.”
