Meet Mari, Marisa and Jen: presenters and producers of an exciting radio show called Pink Noise

In 2016, three Sydney-based women - Marisa Marsionis, Jen Finnley and Mari Stuart -  came together and created Pink Noise, a fortnightly show that airs on Bondi Beach radio, and streams on their website. It's been one year since the first show that plays only plays music produced and performed by women as well as non-binary artists and DJs, in an effort to counter years of male only line ups in spaces that play electronic music. The first year has been a success, and in celebration Marisa, Jen and Mari have released the first of, what will be, many mixtapes. The Pink Noise Mixtape Vol. 1 is available as a free download via Bandcamp, and features twelve artists including Wallace and Mei Saraswati. Also, during Vivid Sydney this year, a special free event will be held at Cake Wines Cellar Door with live performances by BUOY, Jaala, GC O’Connor and more. Marisa, Jen and Mari gave Music Love this interview where they discuss their radio show and mixtape, their favourite Australian women in music, as well as some thoughts on whether or not men and women are biologically wired to hear differently.

Catherine Marks is a force! The London-based award-winning producer answers Antonia Gauci and Julie Kerr's many questions

In 2001, Catherine J Marks found herself in Dublin as part of her degree in architecture. Having being involved in music during her formative years, learning and performing classical music, Catherine branched out into contemporary music. After joining some bands here and there, she took up a degree in architecture and decided to do her placement in Dublin. A hive of creative activity, Catherine met many inspiring artists and creators, including members of U2 and Irish band The Frames. One night, she met producer Flood and apparently told him she wanted to be like Britney Spears. "Well, that’s never going to happen but if you want to do something in music, maybe you can come and work for me?" Catherine eventually returned to Australia to finish her degree, and then moved to London to work with Flood. She started out making tea and vacuuming floors. From there, Catherine has gone from strength to strength. She has been nominated for a Grammy and in 2016, won Breakthrough Producer of the Year at the Music Producer's Guild Awards. She is a wealth of knowledge, a creative and artistic force and one heck of a role model for any Australian young people who want to produce and engineer great music. Catherine took some time to talk to Music Love's Julie Kerr as well as Australian producer on the rise Antonia Gauci (Studios 301) about women in music, her musical path to date, gear (of course), and her quest to champion women in rock.
