Betreff: [DEGEM News] 24/9 in DEN HAAG – New Emergences #4 – How

numbers speak for themselves

New Emergences is a lecture and discussion series highlighting the

current debates around gender in electronic music.

The original title is: Aesthetics, Politics, Philosophy and New

Emergences in Current Electronic Music and Surroundings.

Earlier this year we began the series as a student initiative at the

Institute of Sonology in March 2016. Throughout the three events that we

have had so far, there has been a lot of goodwill for us and all the

keynote speakers and panellists have provided their presence and

conversations for free.

We have been very busy this summer preparing for this next event, and we

would also like to invite you to take a look at our new website: New

Emergences. Here we launch it to the public. It is an ongoing project

and its ethos will be a hub that connects the projects of (primarily

female but to include all other undervoiced) composers, improvisers,

performers, researchers, film and sound artists working within the field

of electronic music and beyond. The website is conceived to be a

continuously emerging web of information that will serve as a platform

to engage with new and existing voices.

On the website, we have a central blog which details the past three

events and their summaries – soon to be fully completed. Please take a

look at:


We are very happy to announce that we have been able to place our 4th

lecture and discussion event into the Bright Collisions Symposium of

Todays Art Festival on Saturday, September 24th. The event will remain

free to the public, and will take place from 11:00-13.00.
