Sound and Music Podcast: International Women’s Day

What does it mean to be a female composer in 2018? How do we balance the need to illuminate common barriers with the need to hear individual stories?

In this special episode of the podcast, we listen to a range of composers on their own terms: Nicola LeFanu describes her earliest musical discoveries and her experiences as an academic; Shama Rahman recalls recording icebergs in the Antarctic; Sarah Sayeed reflects on the contrasts between classical training and learning “on the job”; and Erika Fox narrates her extraordinary journey as a composer through half a century of social change.
