With only 2.8% of popular songs from the last decade produced by women, sound hasn’t reached its full potential. In response, Bose is unveiling “Turn the Dial,” a creative campaign and content series, which calls out the gender disparities in music production and imagines a world where producers of all genders are equitably represented. 
Bose has partnered with four creators whose individual stories showcase a breadth of talent in the industry--H.E.R., PinkPantheress, BLOND:ISH and WondaGurl. All are featured in this hero campaign film directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch of production company Scheme Engine. Stuckwisch is an alum of SHOOT’s 2022 New Directors Showcase. H.E.R. composed the music for the campaign.

For the film titled “Call Me A Producer,” Stuckwisch created bespoke environments for each of the producers, imagined work spaces, describing the diversity of contemporary music production and what an exploration of what a “studio” looks like in 2023, evolved from the cliché of a long mixing desk with hundreds of dials.

Stuckwisch said, “Directing these four fiercely talented producers who bring diversity, complexity, and dimension to the industry was an absolute honor.  With this initiative, Bose is saying, if you can see it, you can believe it. If you can believe it, you can be it. That’s a win no matter how you look at it. Representation is everything.” 

The "Turn the Dial" campaign will run across digital and social platforms with additional assets including profile films of the four producers and product films directed by Scheme Engine’s Symone Ridgell, and campaign stills by Carolina Isabel Salazar.

The campaign was a women-led production in front and behind the camera.  

"Turn the Dial" will also come to life in partnership with She Is The Music, a non-profit organization with a mission to increase the number of women working in music, artists and industry professionals. Together, Bose and She is The Music have cultivated a “Sound is Power Impact Board,” comprised of accomplished music artists and repertoire (A&R) executives and producers. The formation of the board will provide a pipeline for the next generation of aspiring women and non-binary music producers to have an opportunity to elevate their music to a wider audience.
