SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS es un documental de la increíble historia no contada de las mujeres pioneras de la música electrónica, compositoras que adoptaron máquinas y sus tecnologías para transformar por completo la forma en que producimos y escuchamos música hoy.

La película traza una nueva línea de acción en la música electrónica, a través de mujeres visionarias cuyas experimentaciones radicales con máquinas redefinieron los límites de la creación, incluidas Clara Rockmore, Daphne Oram, Bebe Barron, Pauline Oliveros, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Wendy Carlos, Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani y Laurie Spiegel.

 

 

Las mujeres que aparecen en este documental, representan una pequeña muestra de compositoras, músicas, ingenieras y teóricas electrónicas demasiado olvidadas. No es la falta de ejemplos lo que sorprende, es la falta de conciencia de sus roles cruciales. Su trabajo merece una apreciación más amplia, no porque esté hecho por mujeres, sino porque es tan innovador como el trabajo de sus famosos contemporáneos masculinos.

“Technology is a tremendous liberator. It blows up power structures. Women were naturally drawn to electronic music. You didn’t have to be accepted by any of the male-dominated resources. You could make something with electronics and you could present the music directly to the audience–and that gives you tremendous freedom.” – Laurie Spiegel. ⁣ ✨ We’re really excited to announce that #SistersWithTransistors is part of the @sheffdocfest Official Selection! ✨⁣ 💥Watch this space for more info & sign up for updates on our site! [link in bio]⁣ ⁣ 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.⁣ ⁣ The history of women has been a history of silence. Music is no exception. ⁣ ⁣ With the wider social, political and cultural context of the 20th century as our 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.⁣ ⁣ With Laurie Anderson as our narrator, we’ll embark on a fascinating journey through the evolution of electronic music. We’ll learn how new devices opened music to the entire field of sound, how electronic music not only changed the modes of production but in its wide-ranging effects also transformed the very terms of musical thought.⁣ ⁣ Sisters with Transistors is more than just the history of a music genre: it's the story of how we hear and the critical but little-known role female pioneers play in that story.
