SGFA 2019 Tokyo was a research event investigating the context of sound in all its various creative and theoretical forms, gender and activism. For the fourth installment of this regular SGFA forum took place at Tokyo University of the Arts. Our aim was to share research, establishing and extending our pre-existing network of researchers and practitioners working in these areas with those working in Japan and beyond.
