Wayward Music curator and Seattle musician Steve Peters has created a website dedicated to documenting women in avant-garde/experimental music and other sonic disciplines. Titled Many Many Women, the site is a huge and ever-growing resource for exploration and consciousness-raising—and talent booking, should you be in the show-promotion business. It’s also a refutation to those who think there’s a dearth of female composers and performers.
