Sisters with Transistors


This remarkable documentary from director Lisa Rovner tells the story of electronic music’s pioneering heroes - the women who embraced machinery and technology as a form of liberation. Transforming how we produce and listen to music today, Sisters with Transistors maps out the visionary women whose radical musical experiments redefined the boundaries of modern music. With the wider social, political and cultural context of the 20th century as a backdrop, this all-archival documentary reveals a unique emancipation struggle, restoring the central role of women in the history of music and society at large. Featuring Clara Rockmore, Delia Derbyshire, Laurie Spiegel and more. 

“We women were especially drawn to electronic music when the possibility of a woman composing was in itself controversial. Electronics let us make music that could be heard by others without having to be taken seriously by the male dominated Establishment.” - Laurie Spiegel
