Web Editor: Holly Ingleton
Holly Ingleton is a creative practitioner and researcher, investigating feminist discourses in sound and experimental music, who first joined Electra as an intern on the Her Noise Archive in 2010. The Her Noise Archive, which has recently been acquired by the University of the Arts London, is now included on the BA and MA Sound Arts syllabus. Holly's role since August 2010 has been to re-archive the entire Her Noise program from 2001 to 2010, for both the purpose of making this pioneering work accessible as a study resource and also as an instrumental aspect of Holly's ongoing PhD research into subjective economies in UK based electroacoustic arts, at City University's Department of Music.
Prior to commencing her PhD, Holly gained a BA in Sonic Arts from Middlesex University and an MA in Public Arts from RMIT in Australia and is currently Electra's web editor.
