Feb 2020, Brighter Sound, British Council, MUTEK, Bridge_48, Barcelona
Alongside the fantastic CHAINES, I was invited by Brighter Sound and British Council to take part as a guest artist mentor for #WEAREEQUALS electronic music initiative for Mutek Barcelona 2020. Open to future leaders of the electronic music sector, this was a two day participatory programme where we gave talks and shared our personal experience of music making reflecting on our professional practice and UK networks and collaborative scenes. The aim of the programme is to support and promote women identifying artists within the sector and readdress the gender imbalance here specifically within electronic music. Brighter Sound’s Kate Lowes and Debra King curated the event and shared their expertise from their vital work from the Both Sides Now project. We were joined by the wonderful Jayne Styles from Music Managers Forum who shared her insight and expertise with the cohort around artistic development.
I was thrilled to perform on a NEON STAGE on the Saturday evening for the Mutek Soiree at the abaixadors10 club for the programme participants to kick off pre-festival. Thanks to Bridge 48 and Brighter Sound for this amazing opportunity, it was great to test out some of my new work in Barcelona.
