Sisters With Transistors

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

Theremins, synthesizers and feedback machines abound in this glorious ode to the women who helped shape, not just electronic music but the contemporary soundscape of today.

Avant-garde composer Laurie Anderson narration accompanies fascinating archival footage tracing the history of technological experimentation of sound, the deconstruction of its parts and the manipulation into something different. While traversing a range of musical approaches and personalities, from academia to outsider art to television commercials, we meet Clara Rockmore, Bebe Barron, Suzanne Ciani, Laurie Spiegel and Eliane Radigue, among many other fascinating and enigmatic musical geniuses and their peculiar way of hearing the world.

This screening is part of Circuits 2021 organised by Electronic Music Malta (EMM).
