In the world of electronic music, pink noise is white noise, or random sound, that is filtered to seem balanced to our earrs. In the world of electronica web sites, Pink Noises focuses on providing a balanced view of women in electronic music.
Pink Noises offers profiles of women in electronic music, and book, video, and music reviews of their work. There’s information on the hottest women electronic artists, such as Bjork, Cibo Matto, Wendy Carlos, Andrea Parker, and Peaches. You’ll also find out about many artists that you may not have heard of.
The oral history section gives voice to women electronica artists talking about talking about tecnique, the role sex and gender issues play in electronica, and, best of all, a woman’s view of the business of electronica.
Pink Noises does the job of providing a women’s perspective, but is best when it adds a little humor to the mix. Their “small wonders” feature reviews audio gear that is small enough to “fit in your bad-ass back pocket or clutch purse”. Or, as Peaches puts it in her interview, “I don’t give a shit how good you are at knob wanking; I am there to be entertained.”
