About

MusicaFemina (Women Made Music) formed part of an exhibition staged in Vienna in 2018. It featured 100 female composers, from the time of Sappho to the present day. The two-month exhibition was viewed by 56,000 visitors, including the poet, filmmaker and composer Sophie Reyer, who was inspired to compose 100 poetic texts to complement the composers’ 100 short biographies. She offered these to contemporary composers as texts or audio portraits that could be used to create new musical works and act as postscripts to the lives of forgotten female composers. This poetic-musicological project produced an impressively profound snapshot of female composers, and a unique bridge between past and present composing practices.
