This had concerned me as well so I spent much of last year compiling a
double CD compilation encompassing a broad cross section of women's
experimental music (mainly friends of mine or women I've come across in
the last few years playing in clubs, etc). It's called "Female of the
Species" and will be available on the Law&Auder Record Label in the
summer. These particular examples are limited to current experimentalists
and up and coming artists. It's also based around electronic and club
music because that's the nature of the label it was compiled for.
I hope this'll draw some people's attention to the area. In time
hopefully it'll be unnecessary to present exclusively female compilations
as the activity of women in electronic music will be more evident and
their presence more ubiquitous.
