How to Talk of Music Technology: An Interview Analysis Study of Live Interfaces for Music Performance among Expert Women
With the aim of making women’s work in music technology more visible, the organization Women Nordic Music Technology (WoNoMute) has originated conversations with expert women in the form of seminar talks and interviews that are archived digitally. This paper analyses the first seven interviews and seminar talks with women from this online archive using thematic analysis. We explore whether and how their gender determines the shape of their tools focusing on live interfaces. From our findings, we propose to investigate alternative usage of the technical term ‘music technology’ to accommodate more diversity and fluidity into the field. This can inform the revision of the language used in education and human-computer interaction in order to be more inclusive but also to become more conscious about the creation of professional and academic environments that involve music technology.
