A documentary about electronic music’s female pioneers is set to premiere next month.
Titled Sisters with Transistors, the documentary was premiered at The Barbican Theatre on the 14th November, alongside a special Q&A with director Lisa Rovner.
Centered around some of the world’s female electronic music pioneers, including Suzanne Ciani, Delia Derbyshire, Laurie Spiegel, and Clara Rockmore, the archival film “reveals a unique emancipation struggle, restoring the central role of women in the history of music and society at large.”
“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,” states Laurie Spiegel.
