While electronic music is often perceived as a boy’s club, the truth is from the beginning women have been integral in inventing the devices, techniques and tropes that have defined the shape of modern sound. Sisters with Transistors maps a new history of electronic music through the visionary women whose radical experimentations with machines redefined the boundaries of music.


Ces femmes sont des légendes méconnues de la musique électronique, un monde souvent perçu comme un «boy’s club». Tissant des ponts entre la composition savante, la scène expérimentale, le cinéma et la télévision, elles ont traversé les années 1960, 1970 et 1980 armées de synthétiseurs, d’oscillateurs, de filtres et de séquenceurs, d’intimidantes «machines du futur» dont le destin artistique restait à inventer.
