TASCAM and the youthful, riot grrrl-influenced punk quartet the Linda Lindas, announce a promotion to increase awareness of the Women’s Audio Mission (WAM), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of women or gender-nonconforming individuals in music production, technology, and the recording arts. The promotion is free and includes the opportunity to win some exceptional TASCAM audio production gear in addition to an assortment of Linda Lindas merchandise.
WAM’s mission is to ensure those who might not otherwise have access to technology and audio training can use state-of-the-art equipment and experience the power of having their voices heard. This goal addresses two critical issues: (1) the fact that less than 5% of the people creating the sounds, music, and media in the daily soundtrack of our lives are women/girls/gender-expansive individuals, and (2) the alarming 70% decline in women/girls/gender-expansive individuals enrolling in college STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) programs since the year 2000.
To encourage participation, the rewards are significant. TASCAM will provide one lucky grand prize winner a Model 12 Integrated Production Suite, four pairs of TH-07 High-Definition Monitor Headphones, two TM-80 Studio Condenser Microphones, and two TM-82 Dynamic Microphones.
And what type of promotion would be complete without some cool swag? Well, fear not—the Linda Lindas and WAM ‘got you covered.’ In addition to the TASCAM gear, the grand prize winner will also be rewarded with two Linda Lindas tee shirts (two separate colors), the Linda Lindas Growing Up album puzzle box, and a Linda Lindas pin set to help fine-tune one’s visual image. Further, the Women’s Audio Mission will be providing some WAM tee shirts.
The WAM/LINDA LINDAS/TASCAM promotion commences on September 1st and concludes on September 30th. This is an outstanding endeavor aimed at increasing awareness of the Women’s Audio Mission and the organization’s many beneficial programs. To enter, simply click the link here.
