Sisters with Transistors : Musique au ciné

Sisters with Transistors : Musique au ciné

October 28, 2021 | Night

“Sisters with Transistors” from Lisa Rovner, 2020, UK, 1h26, vostf.

“It’s the story of women who hear music in their heads”

This is how Laurie Anderson begins the narrative of the documentary.

Women, pioneering artists in electronic music, are magnificently evoked here through numerous archive images.

Clara Rockmore, Daphne Oram, Bebe Barron, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Pauline Oliveros, Wendy Carlos, Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani, Laurie Spiegel…

These portraits of avant-garde women allow us to look back at the periods of experimentation, new technologies, and music over the last 70 years.

What place have they had in the music world?
What place do they have today?

Artists Azo and Laryssa Kim will be our guests to raise the issue.

A collaboration between C12, rebel, Psst Mlle, Kinograph and EmpreinteS.
