Electrogals was born in 1995 out of the desire to create a forum and outlet for female electronic music composers and digital artists. The mission of Electrogals is to showcase female electronic musicians. Although there is nothing inherently manly about electronic music, the female electronic musician is something of a rare bird. Electrogals exists to help female electronic musicians find a community, as well as an audience.
