Laura Marling has launched new project Reversal Of The Muse.
The songwriter aims to explore female creativity, and in particular is focussing her attention on music.
The multi award-winning talent has kicked off a new series of podcasts, aiming to open up a conversation around why there are so few female voices in the studio environment, and whether that makes a difference to the type of art created.
The new website launches with two podcasts, featuring Laura Marling in conversation with HAIM and the renowned Stateside studio engineer, Vanessa Parr.
Laura Marling explains: “Reversal Of The Muse began as conversations between friends about female creativity. In reversing the muse it became an experiment. As a small part of the global conversation about women in the arts, it became an obsession. It occurred to me that in ten years of making records I had only come across two female engineers working in studios.”
“Starting from my experience of being a woman I began to ask myself what difference it might have made had I had more women around, if any. I wanted to know why progress has been so slow in this area and what effect it would have on music.”
