“In 1998, after a decade of work in the electronic music/art field, I began to inquire into another story. In all the years of education and work in this male-dominated genre (with respect to both its teachers and practitioners) I had hardly encountered anything about women in the history of electronic music/art. I realized the picture was terribly skewed, and so I got started weaving new threads into the narratives.” (Elisabeth Schimana)
