The Platform

True Visibility | True Diversity | True interdisciplinary Networking

True Visibility

  • Videointerviews with female* musicians
  • Interviews as a Podcast
  • Photos of the featured musicians „at work“
  • News/Blog featuring i.e. musicians being awarded, women in music history, cross-genre subjects

True Diversity

  • Variety of Instruments is represented including technical jobs, different voice technics, professions in Musicbusiness i.e. composer*; conductor*
  • cross-genre
  • all Women* (i.e.FLINTA)
  • global and intercultural

True interdisciplinary Networking

Micro Network
  • Individual instrument cluster
  • Individual genre cluster
  • Technical cluster (i.e. producer*; sound engineer*; mastering*)
  • Profession cluster (i.e. composer*; conductor*; teacher)
  • cross-genre cluster – classic can be cool and pop can be serious, or both 😉

Macro Network

  • Labels
  • Agencies/Managment
  • Coaching/Counselling
  • Legal Counselling
  • Festivals/Panels/Workshops
  • Auditions/Competitions
  • Political Activism
  • Environmental &Sustainability Activism in Musicbusiness
  • Radiostations/Podcasts/Livestreams
  • Other Networks
  • Universities/Schools

  • CD/Tape/Vinyl Production Factories
  • Merchandising Production
  • Illustrators*/Photographers*/Videoartists*
  • Webdesigner*
  • Funds
  • Collaborations
  • Music-/instrument-/equipment stores and factories

The Interviews are about:
– her* musical resume and/or love story with her* instrument/profession
– their challenges/crises and how they have dealt with them, what has helped
– what advice or inspiration they would give to other or aspiring musicians on their way and
– what they would like to see different in the musicbusiness for women*

For the video interviews I could bring Stefanie Stoye (video journalist and filmmaker) on board so far.

As a photographer I could win, Andrea Künstle for the project.
https://www.kuenstle.de
She will accompany and document the interviews with her photo camera. Because our idea is also to publish a book, in which approx. 100 female musicians are portrayed. Two pages will be dedicated to each musician: a portrait and the interview in abbreviated form.

The Story

I recently hosted a music livestream for 16 days. Inspired by talking to the many female musicians, I got a vision.

I want to give female musicians from all over the world a voice: On an internet platform with video interviews.

I want female musicians to become more visible in society worldwide. It should no longer be a surprise when they enter the stage with a double bass, a tuba, a drum set, as a conductor or a one-woman-show!

The beauty in the way they make music and the beauty of the individual instrument should be seen and heard and understood as a craft.

The fact that women and musicians from different countries are hiding behind a curtain when auditioning,
so that potential clients do not pay attention to their gender or their origin, is for me the wrong approach! Their talents, their genius, their love for making music should be perceived and valued without gender!

There must be a jolt through society, a change. And female musicians should be able to show themselves naturally, consciously and in their creative power.

This project is primarily about female musicians you don’t hear about all the time. Female musicians who have an everyday life and still live more or less from making music! So women in whom you can find yourself as a musician rather than the few who have made it to the big stages of the world.

I was inspired for the project by:
– many documentaries
– podcasts
– conversations with female musicians
– successful women in other fields
– as well as from my own experience.

All of them had one thing in common: These women often lacked a female role model on their way. A woman they could have looked to for guidance and relate to. A woman who would have given them courage, inspiration and encouragement on their way.

I am Zoey Zoley a: woman, friend, worldcitizen, singer, city tour guide of Berlin, hopelessly passionate about life and making use of my voice as an instrument. Currently singing in our Jazz Duo Mew Matou, but always interested in new collaborations. Recently Mother of www.hermusicworld.com

As a Team-Member to build and establish the H*MW – platform

Do you want to get involved? Do you have ideas and tips or can you think of women who could get involved? 

Co-Founder*, marketing, administration, sound engineering, social media, networking etc. We want and need YOU to soar into the sky and finally make female* musicians truly visible!

As an Investor* because you believe in our Cause and Vision too!

Of course, such a project needs money. You can also support us financially.

The project is also looking for team members in the following areas: marketing, administration, sound engineering, social media, networking.

To ensure fair compensation for all participants, ideas for funding are needed (e.g. through grant applications, attracting media partners, crowdfunding, private supporters).
