Pressure and movements: Gender constructions in experimental electronic music

Abstract [en]

The aim of this text is to examine the field of experimental electronic music with a focus on gender constructions and in particular electronic music's relationship to masculinity. What are some of the recurring ideals and group cultures? Can these suggest causes or in some way explain the gender imbalance in the field?

Due to the expansiveness of the topic, the following text will be divided in to five sections which focus on some of its aspects. In "Male identification and control" gendered stereotypes are analyzed along with suggestions of how they may shape our relationship to technology. "Militaristic symbolism" examines the history of some tools used to make electronic music and its relation to militarism. "Neutrality" criticizes the idea of technology as neutral and "Defensive learning climates" goes in to analyzing the learning environments of electronic music and related technological fields. "Gendered expectations" focuses on how we are socialized to "perform our gender" and how gendered expectations shape us.

“Concluding thoughts” will briefly summarize the previous topics and present ideas about how to work more practically with constructions of gender within experimental electronic music environments.
