Tara Rodgers. 2010. Pink Noises: Women on Electronic Music and Sound. Durham and London: Duke University Press.

Keenan, Elizabeth K.

While the book's interview format does not always
adequately convey the necessary context, its contribution remains significant.
Rodgers addresses an unusually expansive range of topics with facility
and respect to her interlocutors. Most importantly, her commitment to
representing women from a variety of cultural, educational, and musical
backgrounds who work in numerous genres shows both Rodgers's depth of
musical knowledge and her strong commitment to feminism. Through these
interviews, Rodgers makes a convincing case for reconsidering the representation
of women as a central part of the history of electronic music.
