There's an album out there from 1977 called "Women in Electronic Music" and a support site for us called pinknoises.com which simply appears to be about trance and groove DJs, until you realize that some of the women there have Arp 2500s, 2600s, and Serge panels in their rigs... (One clever grrl has a massive collection of over 200 stompbox effects to play with)!

It seems most of the women in synthesis today are hailing from Europe... Why is that ? What does this say about our society lately? Any theories out there?

If you work on computers all day, you might find it a real treat to go totally analog... Not only can you empower yourself with wacko technology making sounds that you yourself create, but you just might find that immersing yourself in timbres and textures that refect your present mood and state of mind, as well as the relief of twiddling with knobs for a while instead of a mouse - to be truly great creative therapy?

Knitting was for Grandma, go modular Momma!
