finally said something
I was contacted to be part of an all-female videogame music project (coordinated by a dude), entitled “Maidens of VGM, a Don Corneo Production.”
For a while, I was too unsettled by this title to really comment…and really I didn’t know what to say. Today I finally buckled down and wrote on the facebook group’s wall:
"Hey…I haven’t really talked to anyone here before, but hello! I was contacted about this project and am very happy with the prospect of collaborating on something awesome.
I do have some concerns with associating myself with the name of the project, and especially the reference to Don Corneo. As for the “maiden” aspect, I do not want the fact that I’m a woman who enjoys videogames sensationalized or made into a kind of spectacle…I just want to make music. My being a woman is not my selling point, and, truth to tell, I am far from identifying myself as a “maiden,” being over 25 and frankly not a maiden in honest terms.
I am absolutely not okay with attaching my name to something labeled Don Corneo. If this project is meant to be empowering, the name of a pimp from a game is a poor joke, if not just in bad taste.
Please let me know what you think, artists, as well as **the person coordinating the project**. I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but as an artist, I want to have the power to decide what to pour my resources into.”
EDIT: Was told that it was just a placeholder name, but the guy in charge changed it. Relief!
