Sisters with Transistors
Lisa Rovner, UK 2020
SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS tells the story of the first female pioneers of electronic music. In a musical era largely dominated by men, this documentary is a rightful ode to female trailblazers. New technologies expanded the possibilities and forever changed the way music was written and produced. A fascinating look at the not so well 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.
A delightful audiovisual tasting of an extraordinary musical genre as well as the underlying emancipation struggle of women in the history of music.
