FREE FROM STEREOTYPES: HOW GENDERED DISCUSSION OPENS THE DOOR TO CREATIVE FREEDOM FOR WOMEN IN ELECTRONIC MUSIC

This thesis was created in conjunction with a full-length electronic music track. Research was done in the area of gender stereotyping within electronic music, looking at the history of the genre, and then diving into a few key stereotypes that have presented obstacles for women to overcome in the past.

“Limited Space” is an original composition created as a practical application of my research. Coming from a classically-trained background, electronic music was unchartered waters. The following was an attempt to immerse myself into the style of electronic music.
