We knew that the last event for our dBs Dialogues 2016 series had to be big enough to match the importance of our topic. If you forgot the topic was ‘why aren’t more women studying music production?’ Interestingly enough however, when we were hearing the captivating stories of our final guests Electric Indigo and Emika, the word women slipped into the background of our focus. Instead we just listened to the journeys of two different people towards success.
For our first dBs Dialogues series, and in conjunction with female:pressure, we’re addressing the issue of low female to male student ratios in music production education. Why aren’t more women studying music production, what effect does this have on the learning experience and what can we do about it? This series aims to open up conversation with the hope of bringing about positive change.
