The Wysing Polyphonic Studio was established in 2017 to support new music and sonic works to be created at Wysing Arts Centre. The studio emerged from Wysing’s annual festival of art and experimental music which has been operating since 2010, and it is the HQ of the Wysing Polyphonic record label. The festival and artistic team at Wysing is female led and the studio is managed by majority female technical staff. The studio, festival and label have been established to create a safe space for music and sonic production, within an atmosphere of inclusion and support.
