Unsung Stories:

Women at Columbia’s Computer Music Center

Unsung Stories: Women at Columbia’s Computer Music Center is a two-day symposium (April 9 and 10) that focuses on the legacy of women who have studied and worked at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center (renamed the Computer Music Center in 1996).

Free and open to the public, the event will highlight the work of women, including the work of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ composers and musicians at the Center, examining how institutional networks and intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, national origin, and other identifications impacted the daily work, modes of interaction, and visibility of women composers at the CPEMC/CMC historically and in the field more broadly. Unsung Stories features panels and roundtables with over thirty composers/sound artists and scholars who will discuss the lineage, musical excellence, experience, and visibility of the diverse women who have worked at the Center from the 1950s to its recent history.

Speakers include Zosha di Castri and Sky Macklay.
