Playlist curated by Andrew Cappetta, Meredith Mowder, and Lauren Rosati.

This playlist, prepared to accompany the exhibition "Sexing Sound: Aural Archives and Feminist Scores," includes experimental music, sound art works, and a few rock songs culled from the UbuWeb archive. The selected works center on the dual themes of "the voice" and "electronics," incorporating humorous plays on gender roles, feminist anthems, and experimentation with synths and early computers. The playlist includes pieces produced by contemporary artists, pioneering electronic musicians, poets, punk bands and vocal artists. Playlist curated by Andrew Cappetta, Meredith Mowder, and Lauren Rosati.
