Main Article Content
Based on new research from In and Out of the Studio, this online work considers the importance of early life experiences and formations in the construction of gendered identities and relationships with sound technologies. Constructed out of a practice of dialogic ethnography, Andra McCartney and Ana Friz act alternately as ethnographer and research subject, interacting in a conversation composed around open-ended questions about life experiences. Through this process, they highlight issues such as the importance of early access to technology and encouragement to experiment, the role of feminist support networks and mentors, and the role of formal institutions such as music schools compared to community resources like volunteer-driven campus-community radio stations. They also discuss challenges to women around credibility, confidence and professionalism.
