Her Noise was an exhibition which took place at South London Gallery in London in 2005 with additional events spread across other London venues such as Tate Modern and Goethe Institut. The ambition of the project was to investigate music histories in relation to gender and to bring together a wide network of women artists who use sound as a medium.
Her Noise featured five newly commissioned works by international artists whose practice shares the use of sound as a medium to investigate social relations, inspire action or uncover hidden soundscapes. New works by Kim Gordon with Jutta Koether; Emma Hedditch, Christina Kubisch, Kaffe Matthews and Hayley Newman all involved high levels of participation and were set in motion only when used by visitors or performers forming a base for events, live music and performances.
