Started in late 2001 by curators Lina Dzuverovic and Anne Hilde Neset to investigate the lack of female presence in the independent music scene, the project focused on women in experimental music.
The documentary is an exclusive compilation from the Her Noise project, specially compiled for this occasion, featuring new, previously unscreened footage.
The video documents the development of the Her Noise project between 2001 and 2005 including interviews with a range of artists involved in the project including Diamanda Galas, Lydia Lunch, Kim Gordon, Jutta Koether, Peaches, Marina Rosenfeld, Kembra Pfhaler, Chicks On Speed, Else Marie Pade, Kaffe Matthews, Emma Hedditch and the show’s curators.
The documentary features excerpts from live performances from Erase Errata, Kevin Blechdom, Lydia Lunch and events during the exhibition at South London Gallery: Kim Gordon, Jutta Koether and Jenny Hoyston (Erase Errata) at the opening of Her Noise, Christina Carter, Heather Leigh Murray, Ana Da Silva (The Raincoats), Spider And The Webs, Partyline, Marina Rosenfeld’s ‘Emotional Orchestra’ at Tate Modern, and footage compiled for the ‘Men in Experimental Music’ video made during the development of the Her Noise project by the curators and Kim Gordon (featuring Thurston Moore).
