I Resound Press, created in 2009 by Department of Music faculty member Linda Dusman, specializes in digital access to hand-copied scores of women composers, and operates under the mission of equalizing the level of women composers featured in contemporary music programming. The performance materials by women composers are selected for their imagination, innovation and craft. By providing fast and affordable access to scholars, performers, and the general public, the digital archive facilitates the study and programming of music reflecting the varied experiences that constitute women’s lives.
