Polyphones is a space of visibility created for and by women in the field of sonic and musical experimentation.
This is a network born out of the reality of the Parisian scene with national and international offshoots. Polyphones aims to promote an artistic practice, through concrete actions, such as, organising concerts, events, workshops, skill sharing, pooling resources and promoting independant labels and micro-publications.
Polyphones is present locally and virtually and manifests itself as a regular fixture in different contexts and proposals. It is a project initiated by Dinah Bird, Marie Lisel, Gaël Segalen, Valérie Vivancos and Christine Webster.
