Gendering Music Matter. Power, Affects, and Infrastructures of Music Industries

The gender gap in the music industry (understood in it´s broadest sense) has been evident, perceptible, measurable, and publicly discussed for many years. However, public discussions and policy initiatives on ‘gender inequality’ and ‘gender balance’ often focus on increasing the number of women and gender non-conforming professionals, leaving the patriarchal infrastructures and cultures of the music industries unchanged and unchallenged.

The conference is hosted by the music anthropological research project Gendering Music Matter (GEMMA <>) that examines the mechanisms that promote or hinder equal participation for professionals working with music production within the Danish popular music industry.
