Sisters With TransistorsLisa Rovner

The remarkable, little known story of the female pioneers of electronic music. Using mostly archive footage, this documentary is a joyful ode to those women. A wonderful audiovisual tasting that takes a look at the fascinating history of a special music genre and of the underlying struggle for emancipation of women in the history of music.

They were pioneers in their genre, these passionate musicians for whom electronic music was a true liberation in the predominantly male music world. New technologies expanded the possibilities and changed the way of writing and producing music forever. A fascinating look at the lesser-known yet groundbreaking influence of visionary artists such as Clara Rockmore, Daphne Oram, Bebe Barron, Pauline Oliveros, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani and Laurie Spiegel.
