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.

We believe that the arts are an indispensable part of what makes healthy people and healthy communities, and that everyone has the capacity for creativity. We also believe that the movement to shop local, treasure handmade goods, and do-it-yourself is not just a hipster fad: it's the way of the past, and also the way of the future. With the evermore pressing need for environmentally sustainable practices, we want to encourage you to buy less, buy better, and buy in a way that celebrates and invests in your local economy. Beyond supporting smart consumers, we aim to foster opportunities for the learning and teaching of creative skills to make useful things that bring you joy, and help us lessen our environmental impact at the same time.
