Johann Merrich, electronic music artist, independent researcher and sound educator from Italy, author of A short history of electronic music and its women protagonists” discusses the process, challenges and politics of uncovering these histories and the erasure of non-white non-Anglo-American women's work in early electronic experimental and electroacoustic music.
