Summoning Voices: A conversation with Mariëtte Groot

A conversation with Mariëtte Groot that took place during the Summoning voices - A radio symposium on feminist world making July 8-9.23 in Goethe Institut Rotterdam and at In the conversation you can hear Mariëtte talking about her sonic journey, the history of WORM and RE#SISTER, the importance of womxn role models in the electronic music world and the underbelly pop up book shop.

Mariëtte Groot has been working for WORM, the Institute of Avantgardistic Recreation in Rotterdam, ever since its beginnings. Two relevant activities for WORM have been: running the WORM shop with books, films and records, and founding the RE#SISTER community, operating from WORM’s electronic studio. The WORM shop has morphed into a mobile and on-line shop called Underbelly Soundartmedia; RE#SISTER has evolved rapidly in a vibrant group of female and non-binary people, responding to its ethos of accessibility, do-it-yourself experimentation and learning, supporting those who tend to be underrepresented in sound art, as well as in electronic and improvised music. Mariëtte herself plays free-flowing music, either solo or with others, using her voice, synths, samples and small acoustic instruments.

Words make language, language makes stories, and stories make worlds
