Directed by Lisa Rovner
2021, UK, 86 min

Sisters with Transistors is the remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and their liberating technologies to utterly transform how we produce and listen to music today.

The film maps a new history of electronic music through the visionary women whose radical experimentations with machines redefined the boundaries of music, including Clara Rockmore, Daphne Oram, Bebe Barron, Pauline Oliveros, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani, and Laurie Spiegel.

Reviews

Electrifying... Feels less like a film and more like a manifesto.
- Rogerebert.com
Sisters With Transistors is more than a music documentary. It's a long overdue tribute to the women that broke barriers in music, technology, and society as a whole. This is not a retrospective, it's a new beginning. Who knows how many future maestros will be inspired by this film?
- Owen Richards, The Art Desk
A vibrant and exciting film... imbued with a spirit of innovation, imagination and defiance against the odds.
- Sophie Brown, CPH:DOX NEXT: WAVE AWARD
