NO FIXED MIX RETURNS.
17 March 2021

String & Tins have announced the second instalment of their 'No Fixed Mix' sound design course for women.

First run in 2019, the programme aims to tackle the gender imbalance in music and sound technology - starting with a series of online workshops and (pandemic permitting) at least one in-person session at String & Tins HQ.


The response to our call out for applicants was huge - it just shows that it's not just men who want to apply for these roles and pursue these careers.

 ”

Those interested have until midnight on Sunday 28th March to submit a one-page CV and a 10-60" example of their work. This can be straight-up sound design, field recordings, experimental music, or an audio-visual project.

Eimear Ní Ghuaire, String & Tins's audio post production manager, is bullish about the scheme's return: "No Fixed Mix's inaugural programme was a bigger success than we could have hoped for and the response to our call out for applicants was huge - it just shows that it's not just men who want to apply for these roles and pursue these careers."


We're hoping that No Fixed Mix will help bring a little extra light in the coming months as we move into brighter times.

 ”

Ní Ghuaire adds: "I have no intention of being a programme in 'unprecedented times' - we come as we are, Zoom or no Zoom, pandemic or none. We must strive for equality across all platforms, under all circumstances.

"As far as I'm concerned, 2021 will be the embodiment of 'onwards and upwards' and we’re hoping that No Fixed Mix will help bring a little extra light in the coming months as we move into brighter times."
