Abstract

This paper formalizes the praxis of the Female Ear in the research and teaching of the science and cultures of music production and audio engineering. After raising awareness of the hegemony of the Male Ear in audio and record-making conventions, alongside strong biases in psychoacoustic knowledge, we report on a preliminary study that was co-created with audio/music production students and music industry professionals, which explored alternative ways of hearing, listening, and negotiating sounds in the workplace.
