Contents:
Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- "We remain of the most white, male-dominated industries in the world" (Wenham 2009): the music industry and gender -- "I don't buy expensive clothes, I don't have a particularly great car but I do have some beautiful microphones which I'm really proud of and they sound fantastic and that's so exciting" (Isobel Clarke 2010): music production and gender -- "A studio of one's own" (Wolfe 2012): self-production, music technology and gender -- "I've got to trust myself because there's no A&R dad who's gonna take the rap for me" (Little Boots 2013); new industry and gender -- "If I was Queen, I would ban the use of gender before the job title, I would ban female singer-songwriter" (Pallo 2015): media representation and gender -- Conclusion -- Appendices -- Index.
Summary: The field of popular music production is overwhelmingly male dominated. Here, Paula Wolfe discusses gendered notions of creativity and examines the significant under-representation of women in studio production. Wolfe brings an invaluable perspective as both a working artist-producer and as a scholar, thereby offering a new body of research based on interviews and first-hand observation. Wolfe demonstrates that patriarchal frameworks continue to form the backbone of the music industry establishment but that women’s work in the creation and control of sound presents a potent challenge to gender stereotyping, marginalisation and containment of women’s achievements that is still in evidence in music marketing practices and media representation in the digital era.
