Trigger collective was founded in 2018 within the Synth Library as an open collective of women and trans* people in music. It manifests in the form of different projects by women and trans* people in music for not only for women and trans*. The collective evolves around the topics of re/search, un/learning, respect, equality and studying various systems of control not only in the field of music technology.
Featured live sets by members of the collective; inspired by deconstruction, dismantling and (un)learning.
