Wendy Carlos in Smithsonian Magazine
No really...

Listening to music on the radio, if you are so inclined,  you will not hear many female led vocals. Especially if you are listening to mainstream music. Country Western, Blue Grass and RnB have more female voices. Punk Rock is getting there, some electronica, yes. But, it is true that even though females are half of the population there is a sad UNDER representation in music of the female voice. That is why I wanted to do City of Women. So now I ask... Where are all the female identifying MC's out there? Where are the ladies making the beats? Who is Wendy Carlos?
