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. Theremins, synthesisers and feedback machines abound in this glorious ode to the women who helped shape not just electronic music but the contemporary soundscape as we know it.

A compelling documentary revealing the impact of female pioneers on the soundtracks and electronic music of recent decades. A celebration of the women that shaped music and the power of their legacy on following generations.
