Heroines of Sound Festival 2021 / Eröffnung


Live-Konzerte, Film

As a closing highlight of the first day of the festival, theremin virtuoso Dorit Chrysler can be experienced for the first time in Europe with a work composed especially for her by electronic pioneer Laurie Spiegel, followed by Lisa Rovner's film "Sisters with Transistors" about pioneering women in electronic music.

Heroines of Sound was initiated from the Berlin scene with a feminist agenda by Bettina Wackernagel and a group of female artists. Outstanding early works as well as forward-looking positions by younger female artists will be performed. The idea is to make it possible to experience the connecting lines between different genres and to continuously strengthen the presence of female artists in the art and music scene.

In addition to the daily changing program with concerts, performances, panels and workshops, there will be the following sound installations as well as films and videos on all four days:
