Welcome to the EQ Network!
This Berlin based group was formed on February 10th 2015. Welcoming women involved in electronic music and sound work of any kind.
(1)For all women and all genders underrepresented within any genre of music technology.
Events are held at EXIT (Wienerstraße 32, Berlin) on the first Tuesday of every month.
The April 2015 meeting is on the 14th – 17.00
The focus of each meeting depends on what members of the group choose to bring to the table. You can see the meeting history at the bottom of this page.
Most current information is here https://www.facebook.com/groups/EQnetwork/
Current members: float in and out depending on their schedules
– are engaged in work with Ableton, DJ equipment, Max, live synth and sampling controllers, piezo microphones and circuit bending, coding;
– are engaged in studio based composition (including electroacoustic music) and live improvisation;
– seem to prioritise ideas over kit! Concepts, ideas, literature… all are passionate about their work!
New members: If you’re interested in coming to a meeting please contact us.
Come to a meeting to find out more, and then consider what you would like to offer (skills, knowledge, experience, insights) in the future.
Here are just a few of the people engaged with this community. More profiles will be posted and updated over time. Would you like your profile here? If so you just need to start attending meetings.

Noise Manifesto proactive in supporting equality in music

Background: Liz Dobson is a music technology lecturer who is interested in providing supportive mechanisms for girls and women to develop skills in music technology. She travelled to Berlin to interview musicians in January 2015 for a month, and seeing the potential for mutual support, she suggested this group as a way of bringing them together. The EQ Network exists to bring about opportunities for knowledge exchange and community around various forms of sound and electronic music, which is a domain that is relatively male dominant. There are sociocultural benefits for this kind of community that I would be happy to discuss.
