For this year's spring issue of Noise Gate, the HeK joins forces with female:pressure. Three members of the network, which currently comprises about 2550 female artists* from 79 countries, will be guests at the HeK. female:pressure is an online database and international network of women*, AFAB, transgender, transfeminine, transmasculine, intersex (+gender optional), genderqueeren, gender non-conforming, a-gender and/or non-binary female artists* in electronic music and digital art, founded in 1998 by Electric Indigo. It includes women musicians*, composers* and DJs up to visual artists*, journalists*, mediators*, cultural workers and scientists* who work together for diversity in the arts.
A workshop with the artists prior to the concert will allow them to get to know the activities of female:pressure and to further deepen the topic of activism in music production.
