Description

The field of popular music production is overwhelmingly male dominated.

Here, Paula Wolfe discusses gendered notions of creativity and examines the significant under-representation of women in studio production.

Wolfe brings an invaluable perspective as both a working artist-producer and as a scholar, thereby offering a new body of research based on interviews and first-hand observation.

Wolfe demonstrates that patriarchal frameworks continue to form the backbone of the music industry establishment but that women's work in the creation and control of sound presents a potent challenge to gender stereotyping, marginalisation and containment of women's achievements that is still in evidence in music marketing practices and media representation in the digital era.
