Pink Noises

Tara Rodgers

Duke University Press

March 2010

What does it mean to be a female electronic musician? This seemingly simple question lies at the heart of Pink Noises, Tara Rodgers’s compelling exploration into the relationship between technology and gender.  Over the course of twenty-four interviews—ranging from pioneers like Pauline Oliveiros and Eliane Radigue to contemporary noisemakers like Bevin Kelley and Mira Calix—Rodgers’s book serves as both an introduction to the world of music and technology, even providing an extensive glossary, and inspirational manifesto, revealing that to succeed as an artist is to follow one’s own unique path, no matter what.
