“We wanted to create an archive of writings that takes control of the narrative with regards to underrepresented musicians. We envision it as a legacy for future generations in which authorship and power shifts towards women and non binary musicians, while decentering white patriarchy in music,” M³ founders Jen Shyu and Sara Serpa
“Women in jazz and creative music fight through the disparity of representation, and it takes bravery to work in such a medium and male-dominated realm. This anthology is a testament that art must prevail within the prison of others’ perceptions.” Jordannah Elizabeth, the founder of Publik / Private / Mutual Mentorship for Musicians’ Editor-in-Chief
From essays and poetry on creative expression, composition, mentoring, artistic statements, to personal experiences in music, grief, motherhood, mental health, and fertility treatment, the M³ Anthology of Essays reveals an extraordinary inner world that has largely been ignored and diminished in the music field, one in which non-male voices are powerful creators, listeners and critics.
