Sisters With Transistors is a joyous celebration of pioneering women in electronic music, featuring the composers and musicians Daphne Oram, Pauline Oliveros, Delia Derbyshire, Suzanne Ciani and Laurie Spiegel among others. Directed by Lisa Rovner and narrated by Laurie Anderson, the film sheds light on these vital and untold sonic histories using a wonderful mix of archival footage, interviews and audio recordings. This absorbing documentary paints a picture of visionary artists using electronic technologies as instruments of liberation, creating and innovating in the face of a male-dominated music industry.
