Pink Noises: Women on Electronic Music and Sound
"Pink Noises is an extremely well informed, informative and inspiring discussion of some of the most crucial aspects and developments in electronic music. The innovators and actors behind these developments happen to be women and Pink Noises thereby highlights the astounding male centeredness in standard accounts and representation in electronic music."-- Anna Gavanas "Dancecult"
"Pink Noises" is a breath of fresh air when you look at how many electronic music books are about more of the same: boys with toys. From the Middle Eastern-inflected electronica of DJ Mutamassik, to the Punjabi rhythms of DJ Rekha, to the academix of Pamela Z and Pauline Oliveros, Tara Rodgers's examination of women as central figures in the creative processes of twenty-first-century art and music is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of music in our hyper-connected and hyper-post-everything contemporary life."-- Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky
