Laura Marling is sick of the lack of feminine presence in the studio. That's precisely why she's put together a new collaborative project Reversal of The Muse which seeks to open up the conversation about female creativity. She packed up her recording equipment, travelling to speak with musicians and engineers with first-hand experience.

Today, she's launched the website with two podcasts featuring LA sisters HAIM and the renowned US studio engineer, Vanessa Parr. Audiences can expect weekly updates with further podcasts, photo diaries, and more. Head to the site here.

"Reversal Of The Muse began as conversations between friends about female creativity," she said. "In reversing the muse it became an experiment. As a small part of the global conversation about women in the arts, it became an obsession. It occurred to me that in ten years of making records I had only come across two female engineers working in studios. Starting from my experience of being a woman I began to ask myself what difference it might have made had I had more women around, if any. I wanted to know why progress has been so slow in this area and what effect it would have on music."
