Her Noise Archive
An ambition of Her Noise was to investigate music histories in relation to gender and to bring together a wide network of women artists who use sound as a medium. Her Noise Archive was developed by the curators, in collaboration with Emma Hedditch and Irene Revell. Made public initially during the exhibition at South London Gallery, the archive contains the collected research materials, interviews and performance footage recorded by the curators and a number of guests during the development of the project. The archive includes books, fanzines, records, CDs, catalogues and other ephemera, as well as a growing number of on-camera interviews with artists including Pauline Oliveros, Maryanne Amacher, Diamanda Galas, Else Marie Pade, Jutta Koether, Marina Rosenfeld, Thurston Moore, Jim O'Rourke, Kevin Blechdom, Kembra Pfahler, Kim Gordon, Lydia Lunch, Peaches and others.

The symposium focuses on the role of gender in sound-based arts and experimental music. The aim of the symposium will be to continue and expand upon dialogues and discourses related to feminism and sound, and to contribute to a growing network of researchers and practitioners working in these areas. It is a follow-up the "Her Noise: Feminisms and the Sonic" symposium at Tate Modern in May 2012. This third edition will feature presentations, performances and more about White Noise.
