Her Sound, Her Story is an intimate conversation unveiling the personal experiences, histories and significant social impacts of women in the Australian music industry.
Featuring more than 45 artists spanning six decades, its unique narrative brims with rage, strength, beauty and triumph: a moving and powerful dialogue that extends beyond the music industry to ask, "Where do we want women's voices to sit in the world today?”
In 1995, Australian music icon and Order Of Australia Medallist Lindy Morrison (Zero, The Go-Betweens, Cleopatra Wong, The Sandy Shores and Alex the Astronaut), made a documentary called Australian Women in Rock and Pop Music to be used as an information resource for women in the music industry. Viewed in hindsight, the uncanny paralleled conversation between the two films shows many reoccurring themes and issues faced by women in music all of which have remained unresolved across the past three decades.
Australian Women in Rock and Pop Music is being released online on September 20th for the first time, for free, you can view it here.
