WOMEN AUDIO PRODUCERS AND ENGINEERS, AND THE CASE AGAINST GENDER VENTRILOQUISM 
Helen Reddington, Senior Lecturer in Music Production at the University of East London 
This talk will focus on women professionals in the UK music industry. Reddington’s The Lost Women of Rock Music (Equinox, 2012) features women punk instrumentalists in the UK in the late 1970s, speaking through the lens of history. These experiences, voiced by the women themselves, challenged the male narrative of the subculture and indeed its very maleness. Reddington’s She’s at the Controls (Equinox, 2019) follows the same methodology, this time focusing on much more recent accounts by women in the music industry. It focuses both on the reasons why it is important that women have equality of access to the music industries, and the impact of often invisible male gatekeeping on the end product (the music) that we listen to and map our lives to. Reddington will discuss issues raised by the women producers and engineers that she interviewed and will contextualize these within the central concept of the book: that of gender ventriloquism.

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: VARIETIES OF INVERTIBLE CANON IN THE LONG SIXTEENTH CENTURY
Denis Collins, Associate Professor in Musicology from University of Queensland, Australia
This presentation takes as its starting point a seeming error in a musical example in Gioseffo Zarlino’s Le istitutioni harmoniche (1558). Careful comparison with similar examples shows that all of his examples are correct as notated. They demonstrate a contrapuntal technique that results in a type of invertible canon in performance. This lecture points to other situations where Zarlino’s theories can help in unravelling the complexities of 16th-century counterpoint. It also discusses how canons, including those that employ complex procedures, enjoyed a long history as title pages or frontispieces to manuscript collections or printed volumes of music. These canons were often presented in geometric shapes whose symbolic significance could be reinforced by accompanying artwork or textual commentaries.

When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.

A DREAM PLAY 
By August Strindberg 
Translated by Harry G. Carlson 
Vincent DeGeorge, director 
A young woman from another world is sent to earth to see what it is like to be human. In Strindberg’s A Dream Play, written in 1901, the playwright has sought to imitate the disconnected but apparently logical form of a dream. Anything can happen, everything is possible and plausible. Time and space do not exist. Using the backdrop of real-life events, Strindberg spins new patterns of memories, experiences, inventions and absurdities all in the quest to discover if life is really worth living.
Estimated runtime: 100 minutes, no intermission
Location: Cohen Family Studio Theater
