Women In The Ambient Music World 


The first time I seriously contemplated gender parity in music production was March 8th 2019, International Women’s Day. As a gesture of solidarity I thought I would “reflect on, highlight and celebrate some of the women that have enriched The Slow Music Movement with their talent, creativity and presence over the last year”, and compile a playlist consisting of a track from each female artist that I had supported that year. It didn’t take me as long as I thought it would.

The following year I thought I would update the list, again it wasn’t a lengthy enough process. After a quick calculation I approximated that roughly 15% of my daily recommendations were women, similar I guess to 2019.
