Boden Sandstrom

Boden Sandstrom is the founder of Woman Sound and a pioneering audio engineer who helped define the sound of the women’s music movement in America beginning in the 1970s. She was on hand for hundreds of marches, protests, concerts, and festivals and worked long and hard to provide the best possible audio for these events, As a result, Boden created a strong and positive reputation for herself and sought to hire and train women in the world of audio and live sound. In 1975 with Casse Culver, she founded Women Sound, a DC-based sound reinforcement company. It expanded to become City Sound Productions, which included conference recording, which she sold in 1990. A music maker herself, Boden played trumpet and French horn in grade school through graduate school. Moving to Washington DC in 1972 gave her another opportunity, this time providing sound for local marches and rallies such as the ERA gathering in 1978, which required sound from the Capitol building to the Washington Mall. She took pride in her work and the relationships she forged among producers, organizers, political activists, and musicians while witnessing firsthand the growth and development of the Women’s Music Network!
