This is the final video in my series from AES 2012 in San Francisco. Noelle Duncan shares some information about the Women’s Audio Mission (WAM) along with Laura Dean, Madalyn Fernandez and Kelley Coyne. WAM was formed in 2003 in direct response to the economic and social inequity that women face in music production and the recording arts.
From The Women’s Audio Mission Website:
Women’s Audio Mission (WAM) is a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts, a field in which women are critically under-represented (less than 5%). WAM is changing the face of sound by providing women and girls with access to and training in music production and the techniques and technology used in the recording arts. In an era that is increasingly dependent on technology, WAM believes that women’s participation in this field will expand the voice of music and media, ensuring that women’s ideas, interests, and points of view are conveyed throughout our culture and society.
