Sisters with Transistors
  • Year2020
  • Duration82 min

The remarkable story of electronic music's unsung heroines narrated by Laurie Anderson. Pioneering composers such as Maryanne Amacher, Bebe Barron, Suzanne Ciani, Delia Derbyshire, Pauline Oliveros, Daphne Oram, Eliane Radigue, Clara Rockmore, and Laurie Spiegel were inventing the sounds of the future with tape recorders, the first synthesisers and early computers the size of a room. When electronic music was finally recognised, they were almost forgotten. Director Lisa Rovner rectifies this injustice with rare archives showing their wild creativity. Your senses will thank you.
