Female contribution to electronic music has been much greater than you may have acknowledged so far. If you’re keen to broaden your horizons, Heroines of Sound is a perfect opportunity to discover some amazing female electronic artists. Through concerts and discussions, the festival aims to presents female electronics in context by featuring both early stage pioneers and younger generation.

The genre spectrum reaches from contemporary classical to avantgarde-pop, with a special attention to artists who interpret electronic sounds performatively. This year’s edition glances eastwards, focusing on the work of the Polish-born French composer Elżbieta Sikora. Performances by contemporary Polish musicians such as Jagoda Szmytka and Katarina Glowicka will complement the showcase of Sikora’s work.

The German composer Iris ter Schiphorst and the Austrian DJ and music producer Electric Indigo, founder of the electronic music database and network female:pressure, will present works that have been commissioned specially for the festival. Unsurprisingly, the lineup also features a bunch of Berlin based acts.

Heroines of Sound takes place on July 7-9th in Radialsystem V. Several associated events will be held in various venues throughout the year.
