Industry Women II invites local youth to participate in electronic music workshops, performances, and a panel discussion on women in electronic music. Moderated by Discwoman co-founder Frankie Hutchinson, the panel includes guests from various facets of the industry, including Mary H.K. Choi, UNIIQU3, and Ryan Smith.
The afternoon includes visuals by Yulan Grant, a DJ set by BEARCAT, a live set by Via App, and Ableton and CDJ workshops lead by FIN and Gun$ Garcia, all concluding in a performance by Suzi Analogue.
Founded by Emma Burgess-Olson, Frankie Hutchinson, and Christine Tran, Discwoman is a New York-based platform, collective, and booking agency representing and showcasing cis-women, trans-women and genderqueer talent that are often underrepresented in many scenes of electronic music.
A nostalgic re-gendering of the popular portable CD player, the name Discwoman is a nod to the transformative power of feminist collective action.
