Creating Spaces for Non-Males in Electronic Music: An EP and Record Label by Luminosity
This project aims to enable a collaborative and empowering space for female and non- male identifying persons within the electronic music industry. Through the development of a multi-sub-genre electronic extended play album, female and non-male identifying producers, engineers, artists, and musicians were given the opportunity to collectively work in a judgement- free environment. In an industry that is predominantly male, female producers and artists struggle to have their voices heard. This extended play album consists of five songs. Two songs are based off of previous projects, ideas, and stories. Three songs are collaborative projects between musicians, writers, and producers. Once mastered, this project aims to further the collaboration between female and non-binary people within the music industry by working to promote and eventually release the extended play album. In addition to the extended play album, an album, this project also contains the development of an all-female and non-binary electronic record label. This label will help promote female and non-male electronic artist’s work and educate others on the effects and struggles caused by gender discrimination. The goal of this project is to inspire future female producers in the electronic music industry to continue to learn, create, network, and discover their voice and feel heard.
