    Episode 17: Women of Noise

    Women of Noise (WoN) is a dynamic platform celebrating and featuring the work and stories of women and non-binary creatives in the global community. It aims to provide an all-inclusive space for the diverse and prolific work of female-identifying and non-binary creatives. WoN began as a concert series (formerly 'Noisy Women') and has been enjoyed by many in Brisbane to celebrate International Women's Day. This concert featured women in music throughout musical development to today. Also tune in to 4ZZZ(102.1) on Sundays at 2-5 am to hear the 'Women of Noizzze' Radio Show. 'Women Write Now' Blog Interviews released each 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. https://womenofnoise.com/

    Phoebe Bognár is a Sydney-based flutist, composer, curator, improviser and founder and artistic director of Women of Noise. Her approach to music is sewn with vibrancy and fluidity, and explores a diverse range of genres, repertoire and styles. Phoebe has given numerous performances across the globe as a soloist, in ensembles and festivals; sharing music with audiences in Sydney, London, Berlin, Oslo, Brisbane, Finland and the United States of America. Phoebe delights in genre-bending collaborations, art forms and disciplines. She explores new and exciting ways of creative expression which intertwine vocal techniques, technology, and relationships with built and natural environments within flute playing and composition. https://phoebebognar.com/

    Phoebe Bognar's Note: "Around the 34:00 mark: when I talk about not programming a concert of completely ‘Black, Indigenous, People of Colour’ composers’ I mean to say I would rather go beyond programming for the sake of programming, but to commit to amplifying and uplifting voices in every single part of Women of Noise and music making.

    Another note around this section is that there are many organisations doing the work of listening, amplifying and working towards justice. This is to be celebrated and acknowledged. But the work is continual and must be an ongoing commitment."
