SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS is the 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.

We're delighted to be hosting an exclusive, pre-release digital screening of SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS + audio Q&A with filmmakers in associaiton with Commune Cinema for 48 hours from 19:00 GMT on Thursday, 25th February. Our audio Q&A is a special conversation at the intersection of music, film and culture. We enlisted the expertise of revered radio host, audio producer and DJ Zakia Sewell who caught up with Sisters With Transistors’ Director Lisa Rovner and Sound Designer Marta Salogni to discuss the feature documentary film about electronic music’s unsung heroines. They discuss the making of the film and some of its key themes, including the process of sourcing a vast archive of footage, the social and cultural barriers within electronic music in this era, and the legacy the pioneering female artists featured have left behind.

All tickets are now sold out, but those who got in there early are in for a treat! Click here to listen to the full audio Q&A.
